17:1 以色列全会众都遵耶和华的吩咐,按着站口从汛的旷野往前行,在利非订安营。百姓没有水喝,

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.

17:2 所以与摩西争闹,说,给我们水喝吧。摩西对他们说,你们为什么与我争闹,为什么试探耶和华呢。

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?

17:3 百姓在那里甚渴,要喝水,就向摩西发怨言,说,你为什么将我们从埃及领出来,使我们和我们的儿女并牲畜都渴死呢。

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?

17:4 摩西就呼求耶和华说,我向这百姓怎样行呢,他们几乎要拿石头打死我。

And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, What shall I do unto this people? they be almost ready to stone me.

17:5 耶和华对摩西说,你手里拿着你先前击打河水的杖,带领以色列的几个长老,从百姓面前走过去。

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.

17:6 我必在何烈的磐石那里,站在你面前。你要击打磐石,从磐石里必有水流出来,使百姓可以喝。摩西就在以色列的长老眼前这样行了。

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.

17:7 他给那地方起名叫玛撒(就是试探的意思),又叫米利巴(就是争闹的意思),因以色列人争闹,又因他们试探耶和华,说,耶和华是在我们中间不是。

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?

17:8 那时,亚玛力人来在利非订,和以色列人争战。

Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.

17:9 摩西对约书亚说,你为我们选出人来,出去和亚玛力人争战。明天我手里要拿着神的杖,站在山顶上。

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.

17:10 于是约书亚照着摩西对他所说的话行,和亚玛力人争战。摩西,亚伦,与户珥都上了山顶。

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.

17:11 摩西何时举手,以色列人就得胜,何时垂手,亚玛力人就得胜。

And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.

17:12 但摩西的手发沉,他们就搬石头来,放在他以下,他就坐在上面。亚伦与户珥扶着他的手,一个在这边,一个在那边,他的手就稳住,直到日落的时候。

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.

17:13 约书亚用刀杀了亚玛力王和他的百姓。

And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.

17:14 耶和华对摩西说,我要将亚玛力的名号从天下全然涂抹了,你要将这话写在书上作纪念,又念给约书亚听。

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.

17:15 摩西筑了一座坛,起名叫耶和华尼西(就是耶和华是我旌旗的意思),

And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovahnissi:

17:16 又说,耶和华已经起了誓,必世世代代和亚玛力人争战。

For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.

出埃及记17参考

百姓又发怨言,这也是我的写照?神啊,求你帮我!
17:2 以色列人遇到困难,再次怨天尤人,不向神祷告。有些问题的解决靠仔细思考,重新安排先后次序;有些要藉著商讨,深思熟虑来解决;但是有些难题惟有祷告才可以解决。快要发怨言的时候,应当立定心意求告神,因为埋怨非但于事无补,反而使人越发苦恼。祷告能令我们的心绪平静下来,聆听神的指示。

以色列人遇到了第一个劲敌──亚玛力人──
17:8 亚玛力人是以扫的孙子亚玛力的后裔,他们住在死海地区,是凶悍的游牧民族,以劫掠财物为生,以杀人为乐。在以色列人的习俗中,称呼一个人为“亚玛力人之友”,是对他最大的侮辱。当以色列人进入亚玛力人的地界,亚玛力人以为这是杀人越货的大好机会,只是他们看错了对象,因为那是神所引领的百姓。曾经为奴的以色列人打败了好战的一族,证明神已照其应许与他们同在。

约书亚是怎样成为接班人的?你愿意效法吗?
17:9 约书亚的名字初次出现,他后来成为领百姓进入应许之地的伟大领袖。他作军队的统帅,要先受磨炼,才能应付以后更大的争战。

“举手”、“垂手”,都有属灵含义,我如何扶持教会的牧者?
17:10-13 亚伦与户珥站在摩西的两边,扶著他的手臂,使他可以举起手来祷告,叫以色列人得胜。我们也应当“扶起”属灵领袖的手。分担责任,说安慰鼓励的话,或为他祷告,都会使属灵领袖重新得力。
