Ke ka ntlha yang fa lo nnela go leka Jehofa?”+  Fa Baiseraele ba le koo, ba ne ba tshwarwa ke lenyora thata mme ba ne ba tswelela ba ngongorega ka Moshe+ ba re: “Ke ka ntlha yang fa o re ntshitse kwa Egepeto go tla go re bolaya le bomorwaarona le diruiwa tsa rona ka lenyora?”  La bofelo Moshe a goela kwa go Jehofa, a re: “Ke dire eng ka batho bano? Go ise go ye kae ba tla nkgobotletsa ka maje!”  Foo Jehofa o ne a raya Moshe a re: “Tsamaya kwa pele ga batho mme o tseye bangwe ba bagolwane ba Iseraele le thobane ya gago e o neng wa itaya Noka ya Nile ka yone.+ E tseye ka seatla mme o tsamaye.  Ke tla bo ke eme fa pele ga gago fa lefikeng kwa Horeba. O iteye lefika mme metsi a tla tswa mo go lone gore batho ba nwe.”+ Moshe o ne a dira jalo bagolwane ba Iseraele ba mo lebile.  Ka jalo, o ne a bitsa lefelo leo Masa*+ le Meriba,*+ ka gonne Baiseraele ba ne ba omana le ka gonne ba ne ba leka Jehofa+ ba re: “A Jehofa o mo gare ga rona kgotsa nnyaa?”  Baamaleke+ ba ne ba tla mme ba lwantsha Baiseraele kwa Refidime.+  Foo Moshe o ne a raya Joshua+ a re: “Re tlhophele banna mme o ye go tlhabana le Baamaleke. Kamoso ke tla ema mo godimo ga thota ke tshwere thobane ya Modimo wa boammaaruri.” 10  Joshua o ne a dira fela jaaka Moshe a mmoleletse+ mme a tlhabana le Baamaleke. Mme Moshe, Arone le Hure+ ba ne ba tlhatlogela kwa godimo ga thota. 11  Fa Moshe a ne a nna a tsholeditse diatla, Baiseraele ba ne ba nna maatla mme fela fa a di diga, Baamaleke ba ne ba nna maatla. 12  Fa diatla tsa ga Moshe di ne di lapa, ba ne ba tsaya leje, ba le baya ka fa tlase ga gagwe a bo a nna mo go lone. Go tswa foo, Arone le Hure ba ne ba tshegetsa diatla tsa gagwe, yo mongwe a le ka fa letlhakoreng leno yo mongwe ka fa go le lengwe, gore diatla tsa gagwe di nne di tsholetsegile go fitlha letsatsi le phirima. 13  Ka jalo, Joshua o ne a fenya Amaleke le batho ba gagwe ka tšhaka.+ 14  Jaanong Jehofa o ne a raya Moshe a re: “Kwala seno mo bukeng gore e nne segopotso* mme o se bolelele Joshua o re, ‘Ke tla dira gore Baamaleke ba se ka ba tlhola ba gopolwa gotlhelele mo lefatsheng.’”+ 15  Go tswa foo, Moshe o ne a aga sebeso mme a se bitsa Jehofa-nisi,* 16  a re: “E re ka Baamaleke ba tlhasetse setulo sa bogosi sa ga Jah,+ Jehofa o tla lwa le bone go tswa mo kokomaneng e nngwe go ya kwa kokomaneng e nngwe.”+
