Moses took Aaron and Hur to the top of the hill while the fighting ensued. As long as Moses held the staff of God in his upheld hands, God’s people drove back the Amalekites.
But when Moses lowered his tired hands, the enemy started gaining ground. Finally, Aaron and Hur held Moses’ hands up until sunset and the Amalekites were soundly defeated.
Colour this page, and remember: It was God himself who defeated the Amalekites. As Moses raised the staff of God, the Israelites were learning that the battle and the victory belonged to the Lord.
