Miraculous Battle against Amalek
8 Then (A)Amalek came and fought against Israel at (B)Rephidim. 9 So Moses said to (C)Joshua, “Choose men for us and go out, fight against Amalek. Tomorrow I will station myself on the top of the hill with (D)the staff of God in my hand.” 10 Joshua did just as Moses [a]told him, [b]and fought against Amalek; and Moses, Aaron, and (E)Hur went up to the top of the hill. 11 So it came about, when Moses held his hand up, that Israel prevailed; but when he let his hand [c]down, Amalek prevailed. 12 And Moses’ hands were heavy. So they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it; and Aaron and Hur (F)supported his hands, one on one side and one on the other. So his hands were steady until the sun set. 13 And Joshua [d]defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
14 Then the Lord said to Moses, “(G)Write this in [e]a book as a memorial and [f]recite it to Joshua, [g]that (H)I will utterly wipe out the memory of Amalek from under heaven.” 15 And Moses built an (I)altar and named it (J)The Lord is My Banner; 16 and he said, “[h](K)Because the Lord has sworn, the Lord will have war against Amalek from generation to generation.”Read full chapter
