Shemoth (Exodus)17:1-16

Listen to this Kathan Kawraw being read
by the chaciyd with some Hebrew pronunciation

1 And all the congregation of the children of Yisrael journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the commandment of YAHUAH, and pitched in Rephidim: and [there was] no water for the people to drink.
2 Wherefore the people did chide with Mosheh, and said, Give us water that we may drink. And Mosheh said unto them, Why chide ye with me? wherefore do ye tempt YAHUAH?
3 And the people thirsted there for water; and the people murmured against Mosheh, 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?
4 And Mosheh cried unto YAHUAH, saying, What shall I do unto this people? they be almost ready to stone me.
5 And YAHUAH said unto Mosheh, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Yisrael; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go.
6 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 Mosheh did so in the sight of the elders of Yisrael.
7 And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Yisrael, and because they tempted YAHUAH, saying, Is YAHUAH among us, or not?
8 Then came Amalek, and fought with Yisrael in Rephidim.
9 And Mosheh 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 YAHUAH in mine hand.
10 So Joshua did as Mosheh had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Mosheh, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.
11 And it came to pass, when Mosheh held up his hand, that Yisrael prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.
12 But Mosheh' 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.
13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
14 And YAHUAH said unto Mosheh, 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.
15 And Mosheh built an altar, and called the name of it YAHUAH-Nissi:
16 For he said, Because YAHUAH hath sworn [that] YAHUAH [will have] war with Amalek from generation to generation.
