The Command to Blot Out Amalek

17 Remember what the Amalekites did to you along the way when you came out of Egypt.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Deuteronomy 25:17

Commentary on Deuteronomy 25:17-19

(Read Deuteronomy 25:17-19)

Let every persecutor and injurer of God's people take warning from the case of the Amalekites. The longer it is before judgement comes, the more dreadful will it be at last. Amalek may remind us of the foes of our souls. May we be enabled to slay all our lusts, all the corruptions both within and without, all the powers of darkness and of the world, which oppose our way to the blessed Saviour.
