 17:7
 17:8
17:7 [Moses] named the place Testing-and-Argument because the people had argued and had tested God. They had asked, 'Is God with us or not?'
Vayikra shem hamakom Masah uMerivah al-riv beney Yisra'el ve'al nasotam et-Adonay lemor hayesh Adonay bekirbenu im-ayn.
17:8 Amalek arrived and attacked Israel there in Rephidim.
Vayavo Amalek vayilachem im-Yisra'el biRefidim.
