("Jehovah my banner".) Name given by Moses to the altar commemorating Israel' s victory, under Jehovah, over Amalek. (See AMALEK.) (Exodus 17:15). His name, i.e. "manifested character" toward His people, is their rallying point. (See BANNER.) The rod of God in Moses' hand, when held up as a banner, brought victory; so it was the pledge of what the altar represented, that Jehovah is the ensurer of victory to His people when rallying round Him (Psalms 60:4; Isaiah 11:10; Proverbs 18:10).
