1 The people murmur for water at Rephidim. 5 God sendeth him for water to the rock in Horeb. 8 Ama-, lek is overcome by the holding up of Moses' hands. 15 Moses buildeth the altar JEHOVAH-nissi.

8Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. 9 And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, 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 Joshua did as Moses
had said to him, and fought

with Amalek: and Moses, Aa-
ron, and Hur went up to the
top of the hill.

14 And the LORD said 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.

5 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go. 6 Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.
