Chapter 17

Water in the Rock

1 Then all the congregation of the sons of Israel journeyed by stages [fn] from the wilderness of Sin, according to the command [fn] of the Lord, and camped at Rephidim, and there was no water for the people to drink.
2 Therefore the people quarreled with Moses and said, "Give us water that we may drink." And Moses said to them, "Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you test the Lord?"
3 But the people thirsted there for water; and they [fn] grumbled against Moses and said, "Why, now, have you brought us up from Egypt, to kill us [fn] and our [fn] children and our [fn] livestock with thirst?"
4 So Moses cried out to the Lord, saying, "What shall I do to this people? A little more and they will stone me."
5 Then the Lord said to Moses, "Pass before the people and take with you some of the elders of Israel; and take in your hand your staff with which you struck the Nile, and go.
6 "Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock at Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, that the people may drink." And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.
7 He named the place Massah [fn] and Meribah [fn] because of the quarrel of the sons of Israel, and because they tested the Lord, saying, "Is the Lord among us, or not?"

Amalek Fought

8 Then Amalek came and fought against Israel at Rephidim.
9 So Moses said to Joshua, "Choose men for us and go out, fight against Amalek. Tomorrow I will station myself on the top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand."
10 Joshua did as Moses told [fn] him, and [fn] fought against Amalek; and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.
11 So it came about when Moses held his hand up, that Israel prevailed, and when he let his hand down [fn], Amalek prevailed.
12 But Moses' hands were heavy. Then they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it; and Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side and one on the other. Thus his hands were steady until the sun set.
13 So Joshua overwhelmed [fn] Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.

14 Then the Lord said to Moses, "Write this in a [fn] book as a memorial and recite [fn] it to Joshua, that [fn] I will utterly blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven."
15 Moses built an altar and named it The Lord is My Banner;
16 and he said, "The [fn] Lord has sworn; the Lord will have war against Amalek from generation to generation."
