1 Igitur profecta omnis multitudo filiorum Israël de deserto Sin per mansiones suas, juxta sermonem Domini, castrametati sunt in Raphidim, ubi non erat aqua ad bibendum populo.

2 Qui jurgatus contra Moysen, ait : Da nobis aquam, ut bibamus. Quibus respondit Moyses : Quid jurgamini contra me ? cur tentatis Dominum ?

3 Sitivit ergo ibi populus præ aquæ penuria, et murmuravit contra Moysen, dicens : Cur fecisti nos exire de Ægypto, ut occideres nos, et liberos nostros, ac jumenta siti ?

4 Clamavit autem Moyses ad Dominum, dicens : Quid faciam populo huic ? adhuc paululum, et lapidabit me.

5 Et ait Dominus ad Moysen : Antecede populum, et sume tecum de senioribus Israël : et virgam qua percussisti fluvium, tolle in manu tua, et vade.

6 En ego stabo ibi coram te, supra petram Horeb : percutiesque petram, et exibit ex ea aqua, ut bibat populus. Fecit Moyses ita coram senioribus Israël :

7 et vocavit nomen loci illius, Tentatio, propter jurgium filiorum Israël, et quia tentaverunt Dominum, dicentes : Estne Dominus in nobis, an non ?

8 Venit autem Amalec, et pugnabat contra Israël in Raphidim.

9 Dixitque Moyses ad Josue : Elige viros : et egressus, pugna contra Amalec : cras ego stabo in vertice collis, habens virgam Dei in manu mea.

10 Fecit Josue ut locutus erat Moyses, et pugnavit contra Amalec : Moyses autem et Aaron et Hur ascenderunt super verticem collis.

11 Cumque levaret Moyses manus, vincebat Israël : sin autem paululum remisisset, superabat Amalec.

12 Manus autem Moysi erant graves : sumentes igitur lapidem, posuerunt subter eum, in quo sedit : Aaron autem et Hur sustentabant manus ejus ex utraque parte. Et factum est ut manus illius non lassarentur usque ad occasum solis.

13 Fugavitque Josue Amalec, et populum ejus in ore gladii.

14 Dixit autem Dominus ad Moysen : Scribe hoc ob monimentum in libro, et trade auribus Josue : delebo enim memoriam Amalec sub cælo.

15 Ædificavitque Moyses altare : et vocavit nomen ejus, Dominus exaltatio mea, dicens :

16 Quia manus solii Domini, et bellum Domini erit contra Amalec, a generatione in generationem.


Exploring the Meaning of Exodus 17      

Napsal(a) Emanuel Swedenborg

Arcana Coelestia 8554. In the preceding chapter, in the internal sense, the third temptation was treated of - that there was a lack of good. This having been given them, in the internal sense in this chapter the fourth temptation is treated of - that there was a lack of truth. This temptation is signified by "the murmuring of the sons of Israel because they had no water;" and therefore the truth of faith was given them by the Lord, which is signified by "the water out of the rock of Horeb."

Arcana Coelestia 8555. Then follows the combat of the falsity that is from evil against the truth and good of faith, which combat is represented by the fighting of Amalek against Israel. That they who are in the truth and good of faith conquer when they look upward to the Lord, and that they yield when they look downward, is represented by the sons of Israel conquering so long as Moses kept his hands raised, and by their yielding when he let them down.
