8 lThen came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. 9 And Moses said unto mJoshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with nthe rod of God in mine hand. 10 So Joshua did 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 Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. 12 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 Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword. 14 And the Lord said unto Moses, oWrite this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for pI will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. 15 And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it ||Jehovah-nissi: 16 For he said, ||Because †the Lord hath sworn that the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.
Or, Because the hand of Amalek is against the throne of the Lord, therefore, &c.
Heb. the hand upon the throne of the Lord.
