Then cameAmalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.9
And Mosessaid unto Joshua,a Choose us outmen, and go out , fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand.10
So Joshuadid as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses,Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.11
And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israelprevailed : and when he let down his hand,Amalekprevailed .
But Moses'hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.13
And JoshuadiscomfitedAmalek and his people with the edge of the sword.14
And the LORDsaid unto Moses,Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.15
And Mosesbuilt an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi:b16
For he said , Because the LORD hath swornthat the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.
