Exodus 17


17:1 And all the congregation of the children of Israel
 journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys,
 according to the commandment of the LORD, and encamped in
 Rephidim: and [there was] no water for the people to drink.
17:2 Wherefore the people contended with Moses, and said, Give
 us water that we may drink. And Moses said to them, Why chide
 you with me? why do ye tempt the LORD?
17:3 And the people thirsted there for water; and the people
 murmured against Moses, and said, Why [is] this [that] thou
 hast brought us out of Egypt to kill us and our children and
 our cattle with thirst?
17:4 And Moses cried to the LORD, saying, What shall I do to
 this people? they are almost ready to stone me.
17:5 And the LORD said to Moses, Go on before the people, and
 take with thee of the elders of Israel: and thy rod, with which
 thou smotest the river, take in thy hand, and go.
17:6 Behold, I will stand before thee there on the rock in
 Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and water shall come out
 of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight
 of the elders of Israel.
17:7 And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah,
 because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because
 they tempted the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us, or not?
17:8 Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.
17:9 And Moses said to 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 my hand.
17:10 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.
17:11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that
 Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek
 prevailed.
17:12 But Moses's hands [were] heavy; and they took a stone, and
 put [it] under him, and he sat upon it: and Aaron and Hur
 supported 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.
17:13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge
 of the sword.
17:14 And the LORD said to Moses, Write this [for] a memorial in
 a book, and rehearse [it] in the ears of Joshua: for I will
 utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.
17:15 And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it
 JEHOVAH-nissi:
17:16 For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn [that] the LORD
 [will have] war with Amalek from generation to generation.
