The Biblical story illustrated by this painting is told in Exodus, Chapter 17, and describes how Moses instructed Joshua to battle with Amalek whilst Moses held the rod of God on a nearby hilltop. As Moses raised his hands, Joshua prevailed. When he lowered them Amalek prevailed. As his hands became heavy Aaron and Hur supported them to enable Joshua and Israel to win the battle. This painting is almost certainly the same as in an auction list for the sale of contents of Aberglasney Mansion, Llangathen, Carmarthenshire on the 1st to the 3rd of April 1908.
