Then 1Amalekcame and foughtagainstIsrael at 2Rephidim.
So Mosessaid to 3Joshua, "Choosemen for us and go out, fight against Amalek. Tomorrow I will stationmyself on the top of the hill with 4the staff of God in my hand."
10Joshuadid as Mosesatold him, band fought against Amalek; and Moses, Aaron, and 5Hurwent up to the top of the hill.
So it came about whenMosesheld his hand up, that Israelprevailed, and when he let his handcdown, Amalekprevailed.
But Moses' hands were heavy. Then they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it; and Aaron and Hur6supported his hands, one on oneside and one on the other. Thus his hands were steadyuntil the sunset.
So JoshuadoverwhelmedAmalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
Then the LORDsaid to Moses, "7Writethis in ea book as a memorial and frecite it to Joshua, gthat 8I will utterlyblot out the memory of Amalek from underheaven."
15Mosesbuilt an 9altar and named it 10The LORD is My Banner;
and he said, "h11The LORD has sworn ; the LORD will have war against Amalek from generation to generation."
