Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 And the whole congregation of the sons of Israel moved from the wilderness of Sin to their own way, according to the commandment of the Lord, and pitched in Rephidim, and there was no water for the people to drink.
2 And the people of Moses rebuked, and said, Give us water to drink. And Moses said unto them, Why do you rebuke me? why are you tempting the Lord?
3 And the people thirsted there for water, and the people grumbled against Moses, saying: why did you bring us out of Egypt, to thirst us and our children and our herds with thirst?
4 Moses cried out to the Lord and said: What shall I do with this people? some more, and they will stone me.
5 And the Lord said to Moses: go in front of the people, and take with you [some] of the elders of Israel, and your rod with which you struck the water, take it in your hand and go;
6 behold, I will stand before you there on a rock in Horeb, and you will strike a rock, and water will come out of it, and the people will drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.
7 And he called the place that name: Massa and Meriva, because of the reproach of the sons of Israel and because they tempted the Lord, saying: is the Lord among us or not?

eight And the Amalekites came and fought with the Israelites at Rephidim.
nine Moses said to Jesus: choose us husbands, and go fight against the Amalekites; tomorrow I will be on the top of the hill, and the rod of God will be in my hand.
ten And Jesus did, as Moses told him, and [went] to fight with the Amalekites; and Moses and Aaron and Horus ascended to the top of the hill.
eleven And when Moses lifted up his hands, Israel prevailed, and when he dropped his arms, Amalek prevailed;
12 but the hands of Moses were heavy, and then they took a stone and put it under it, and he sat on it, while Aaron and Hor supported his hands, one on one and the other on the other [side]. And his hands were raised before the sun went down.
13 And Jesus deposed Amalek and the people with the tip of his sword.
fourteen And the Lord said to Moses: write this for memory in a book, and tell Jesus that I will completely erase the memory of the Amalek from heaven.
fifteen And Moses built an altar and called his name: Jehovah Nissi.
16 For, he said, a hand is on the throne of the Lord: the Lord wrestles against Amalek from generation to generation.
