17 Remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way as ye came forth out of Egypt;
17 Remember what things Amalec did to thee by the way, when thou wentest forth out of the land of Egypt
18 how he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee, all that were enfeebled in thy rear, when thou wast faint and weary; and he feared not God.
18 how he met you and cut down the stragglers of the troops, who were sitting down, exhausted, when you were consumed by hunger and hardship, and how he did not fear God.
19 Therefore it shall be, when YHWH thy God hath given thee rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land which the YHWH thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it, that thou shalt blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; thou shalt not forget.
19 Therefore, when the Lord your God will give you rest, and you will have subdued all the surrounding nations, in the land which he has promised to you, you shall delete his name from under heaven. Take care not to forget this.”
