Amalek Fought

8 Then 1Amalek came and fought against Israel at 2Rephidim. 9 So Moses said to 3Joshua, "Choose men for us and go out, fight against Amalek. Tomorrow I will station myself on the top of the hill with 4the staff of God in my hand." 10 Joshua did as Moses atold him, band fought against Amalek; and Moses, Aaron, and 5Hur went up to the top of the hill. 11 So it came about when Moses held his hand up, that Israel prevailed, and when he let his hand cdown, Amalek prevailed. 12 But Moses' hands were heavy. Then they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it; and Aaron and Hur 6supported his hands, one on one side and one on the other. Thus his hands were steady until the sun set. 13 So Joshua doverwhelmed Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. 14 Then the LORD said to Moses, "7Write this in ea book as a memorial and frecite it to Joshua, gthat 8I will utterly blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven." 15 Moses built an 9altar and named it 10The LORD is My Banner; 16 and he said, "h11The LORD has sworn ; the LORD will have war against Amalek from generation to generation."
