Amalek/Amalekites

Post  A Bible Student on Sun Jan 04, 2015 12:17 am

The Amalekites were a nomadic tribe stemming from Amalek, a grandson of Esau (son of Isaac) (Gen 36:12).  They harassed the Israelites during the exodus from Egypt (Exodus 17:8-16), putting them somewhere between Egypt and Israel – most likely the Sinai Peninsula.  The Sinai Peninsula today is in the hands of modern day Egypt.
