And Moses said to Joshua, "Choose us some men and go out, fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with o the rod of God in my hand."

And so it was, when Moses p held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.
But Moses' hands became heavy; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.
