17 The Lord Gives Water from a Rock
(Numbers 20.1-13)
1 The Israelites left the desert and moved from one place to another each time the Lord ordered them to. Once they camped at Rephidim,
a 17.1 Rephidim: The last stopping place for the Israelites between the Red Sea and Mount Sinai; the exact location is not known.
but there was no water for them to drink.
17.1-7 Nu 20.2-13.
17 Chapter recording
List of all recordings of KJV
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 pitched in Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink.
2 The people started complaining to Moses, “Give us some water!”
Moses replied, “Why are you complaining to me and trying to put the Lord to the test?”
2 Wherefore the people did chide with Moses, and said, Give us water that we may drink. And Moses said unto them, Why chide ye with me? wherefore do ye tempt the LORD?
3 But the people were thirsty and kept on complaining, “Moses, did you bring us out of Egypt just to let us and our families and our animals die of thirst?”
3 And the people thirsted there for water; and the people murmured 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 Then Moses prayed to the Lord, “What am I going to do with these people? They are about to stone me to death!”
4 And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, What shall I do unto this people? they be almost ready to stone me.
5 The Lord answered, “Take some of the leaders with you and go ahead of the rest of the people. Also take along the walking stick you used to strike the Nile River,
5 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go.
6 and when you get to the rock at Mount Sinai,
b 17.6 Sinai: The Hebrew text has “Horeb,” another name for Sinai.
I will be there with you. Strike the rock with the stick, and water will pour out for the people to drink.” Moses did this while the leaders watched.
6 Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.
7 The people had complained and tested the Lord by asking, “Is the Lord really with us?” So Moses named that place Massah, which means “testing” and Meribah, which means “complaining.”
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?
Massah: that is, Temptation
Meribah: that is, Chiding, or, Strife
Israel Defeats the Amalekites
8 When the Israelites were at Rephidim, they were attacked by the Amalekites.
8 Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.
9 So Moses told Joshua, “Have some men ready to attack the Amalekites tomorrow. I will stand on a hilltop, holding this walking stick that has the power of God.” 9 And Moses said unto 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 mine hand.
Joshua: called Jesus
10 Joshua led the attack as Moses had commanded, while Moses, Aaron, and Hur stood on the hilltop.
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 The Israelites out-fought the Amalekites as long as Moses held up his arms, but they started losing whenever he had to lower them. 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 Finally, Moses was so tired that Aaron and Hur got a rock for him to sit on. Then they stood beside him and supported his arms in the same position until sunset. 12 But Moses' hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur stayed up 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 That's how Joshua defeated the Amalekites. 13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
14 Afterwards, the Lord said to Moses, “Write an account of this victory and read it to Joshua. I want the Amalekites to be forgotten forever.”
17.14 Dt 25.17
14 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this for a memorial in a book, and rehearse it in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.
15 Moses built an altar and named it “The Lord Gives Me Victory.”
15 And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi:
Jehovahnissi: that is, The LORD my banner
16 Then Moses explained, “This is because I depended on the Lord.
c 17.16 This ... Lord: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text.
But in future generations, the Lord will have to fight the Amalekites again.”
16 For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.
Because...: or, Because the hand of Amalek is against the throne of the LORD, therefore, etc
the LORD hath...: Heb. the hand upon the throne of the LORD
