    We are to remember: remember who Amalek is; remember the battle that we fight; remember what God has done and therefore what He in His faithfulness will do. Free yourself, the sages teach, from mundane involvement and ungodly entanglement. Remember your first love and He will help you to meet every challenge, rational or not.   ‘Remember what Amalek did to you on your journey out of Egypt you shall blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; do not forget’ (Deut. [NRSV]; cf. Exod. , where it is the L ord who will ‘utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek’). This verse has disturbed both Jewish and Christian readers for millennia. How can such passages inform Author: William L. Lyons.

    Amalek was the first of the nations, but his latter end shall be that he perish forever. So Amalek is an illustration of those who are sources of conflict for the people of God. Let us look now chapter 17 and we will begin with verse 8 through ve . The Amalekites are a people mentioned a number of times in the Hebrew Bible. They are considered to be descended from an ancestry Amalek. According to the Book of Genesis and 1 Chronicles, Amalek (Arabic,عماليق,Hebrew: עֲמָלֵק, Modern Amalek Tiberian ʻĂmālēq) was the son of Eliphaz and the grandson of Esau (Gen. ; 1 Chr. ); the chief of an Edomite tribe .

    Nonetheless, there were many important rabbis who ruled that Amalek still exists and that we are still commanded to remember their deed and to destroy them. This was the opinion of Maimonides in his Sefer Hamitzvot (Positive Commandments ) and in his Mishneh Torah (Laws of Kings ). We should remember what Amalek did to us, and other Amaleks throughout history have done to us Phil Chernofsky, 15/03/19 Iranian-made Emad missile.
