Deuteronomy 25:17 Meaning and Commentary

Deuteronomy 25:17

Remember what Amalek did unto thee
The Amalekites, how they came out against them, and fought with them at Rephidim, ( Exodus 17:8 ) ;

by the way, when ye were come forth out of Egypt;
which was an aggravation of their cruel and inhuman action, that they not only came out against them unprovoked, were the aggressors, and fell upon them as they were travelling on the road, but when they were just come out of Egypt, where they had been in hard bondage, and their spirits broken, and they not used to war; and so took them at all these disadvantages, a people that had not in the least injured them.

Deuteronomy 25:17 In-Context

15 Use only one weight, a true and honest weight, and one measure, a true and honest measure, so that you will live a long time on the land that God, your God, is giving you.
16 Dishonest weights and measures are an abomination to God, your God - all this corruption in business deals!
17 Don't forget what Amalek did to you on the road after you left Egypt,
18 how he attacked you when you were tired, barely able to put one foot in front of another, mercilessly cut off your stragglers, and had no regard for God.
19 When God, your God, gives you rest from all the enemies that surround you in the inheritance-land God, your God, is giving you to possess, you are to wipe the name of Amalek from off the Earth. Don't forget!
