Exodus 17:11a (ANIV)
As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, [but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning.]
TIME OF DAY:
Unspecified in the Bible narrative, I have set this scene in the late morning.
The sun (high in the sky & unseen on the right) is illuminating this scene, and casting shadows to the left of figures and objects.
Left to right, on the hilltop (in the foreground): Hur, Moses (holding the staff aloft) & Aaron. One guard/soldier.
In the background we can see the Israelites (in brown coloured robes) running from left to right, & the Amalekites (predominantly in light yellow/green robes) running away in defeat.
This scene shows Moses holding the staff above his head, on a hilltop, overlooking the battle between the Israelites & Amalekites. According to verse 11, “As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning”. We can see the Israelite soldiers surging into the Amalekite ranks & beating them back.
