Battle with the Amalekites

8 And Amalek came and fought with Israel at Rephidim. 9 And Moses said to Joshua, "Choose men for us, and go out, fight against Amalek tomorrow. I [will be] standing on the top of the hill, and the staff of God [will be] in my hand." 10 And Joshua did as Moses had said to him to fight with Amalek. And Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up [to] the top of the hill. 11 Anda when Moses raised his hand, Israel would prevail, but when he rested his hand, Amalek would prevail. 12 But the hands of Moses [were] heavy, and they took a stone and placed it under him, and he sat on it; Aaron and Hur supported his hands, {one on each side},b and his hands [were] steady until {sundown}.c 13 And Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with [the] {edge of the sword}.d 14 And Yahweh said to Moses, "Write this [as] a memorial in the scroll and {recite it in the hearing of}e Joshua, because I will utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under the heavens." 15 And Moses built an altar, and he called its name Yahweh [Is] My Banner. 16 And he said, "Because a hand [was] against the throne of Yah,f a war [will be] for Yahweh with Amalek from generation [to] generation."
