Sin to Massah-Meridah - water from the rock.  Ex.17.1-7

1The whole community of Israel set out from the wilderness of Sin and travelled by stages as the LORD told them. They encamped at Rephidim, where there was no water for the people to drink, 2and a dispute arose between them and Moses. When they said, 'Give us water to drink', Moses said, 'Why do you dispute with me? Why do you challenge the LORD?' 3There the people became so thirsty that they raised an outcry against Moses: 'Why have you brought us out of Egypt with our children and our herds to let us all die of thirst?' 4Moses cried to the LORD, 'What shall I do with these people? In a moment they will be stoning me.' 5The LORD answered, 'Go forward ahead of the people; take with you some of the elders of Israel and the staff with which you struck the Nile, and go. 6You will find me waiting for you there, by a rock in Horeb. Strike the rock; water will pour out of it, and the people shall drink.' Moses did this in the sight of the elders of Israel. 7He named the place Massah That is Challenge and Meribah That is Dispute, because the Israelites had disputed with him and challenged the LORD with their question, 'Is the LORD in our midst or not?'

Rephidim - victory over the Amalekites.  Ex.17.8-16

8The Amalekites came and attacked Israel at Rephidim. 9Moses said to Joshua, 'Pick your men, and march out tomorrow to fight for us against Amalek; and I will take my stand on the hill-top with the staff of God in my hand.' 10Joshua carried out his orders and fought against Amalek while Moses, Aaron and Hur climbed to the top of the hill. 11Whenever Moses raised his hands Israel had the advantage, and when he lowered his hands Amalek had the advantage. 12But when his arms grew heavy they took a stone and put it under him and, as he sat, Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on each side, so that his hands remained steady till sunset. 13Thus Joshua defeated Amalek and put its people to the sword.

14The LORD said to Moses, 'Record this in writing, and tell it to Joshua in these words: "I am resolved to blot out all memory of Amalek from under heaven." ' 15(15 16) Moses built an altar, and named it Jehovah-nissi and said, 'My oath upon it: the LORD is at war with Amalek generation after generation.'
