Shemos/Exodus  17:8 - 16

Chapter 17

8 Amalek came and battled Israel in Rephidim.  9 Moses said to Joshua, "Choose people for us and go do battle with Amalek; tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand.  10 Joshua did as Moses said to him, to do battle with Amalek; and Moses, Aaron, and Hur ascended to the top of the hill.  11 It happened that when Moses raised his hand Israel was stronger, and when he lowered his hand Amalek was stronger.  12 Moses' hands grew 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 this side and one on that side, and he remained with his hands in faithful prayer until sunset.  13 Joshua weakened Amalek and its people with the sword's blade.

14 Hashem said to Moses, "Write this as a remembrance in the Book and recite it in the ears of Joshua, that I shall surely erase the memory of Amalek from under the heavens."  15 Moses built an altar and called it "Hashem is My Miracle";  16 and he said, "For the hand is on the throne of God - Hashem maintains a war against Amalek, from generation to generation."
