1 And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of a, after their journeys, according to the commandment of the Lord, and b in Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink.
2 Wherefore the people a Moses, and said, Give us water that we may drink. And Moses said unto them, Why chide ye with me? wherefore do ye b?
3 And the people thirsted there for water; and the people a against Moses, and said, Wherefore is this that thou hast brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our cattle with thirst?
4 And Moses cried unto the Lord, saying, What shall I do unto this people? they be almost ready to stone me.
5 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy a, b 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 a the b, and there shall come c out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.
7 And he called the name of the place a, and b, because of the c of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the Lord, saying, Is the Lord among us, or not?
8 ¶Then came a, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.
9 And Moses said unto a, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the b 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 a; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur b 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 a Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
14 And the Lord said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a a, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of b from under heaven.
15 And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it a:
16 For he said, a the Lord hath sworn that the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.
