Exodus 17:9 (ANIV)
9 Moses said to Joshua, “Choose some of our men and go out to fight the Amalekites. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hands.”
TIME OF DAY:
Unspecified in the Bible narrative, I have set this scene in the late morning.
Sunlight (high & on the left of this picture) illuminates this scene, casting shadows to the right of people and objects.
From left to right: Joshua (son of Nun), Aaron, Moses, some Hebrew people in tents.
This scene shows Moses indicating the hill that he intends to stand on (in the background).
To the right of the scene there are some Israelite (Hebrew) people, sitting in their tents. There is a Hebrew soldier (holding a spear) talking to a man in mustard-coloured robes. He is on guard against another Amalekite attack.
Below is the rough pencil sketch I drew to design this scene.

Here is the scene without the figures & tents.
