comment Is God still at war with Amalek?
In other words it has prophetic overtones and v6 could be anticipating a future fulfilment (perhaps in addition to a past, lesser fulfilment)?

also he links to Esau as does Joseph in his answer

comment Is God still at war with Amalek?
Thanks! He also cross-references Numbers 24:20, which is interesting as (eg) judgement against Edom can be directly compared to judgement against Amalek.

Out of interest, I've discovered Psalm 9:5-6 where David uses similar language.

revised Does Mark 11:26 mean that those who do not forgive others are not forgiven by God?
I've changed the tone of this question to justify re-opening: it's now more focused on the text the question comes from, and the tone is less contraversial I hope. I've tried o stay true to the original intent, I hope I've succeeded.

comment Why does the Septuagint contain non-Tanakh books?
If I understand you correctly, you are disputing that "the Septuagint was a Jewish publication", or perhaps even that it was a distinct 'publication' at all? If so, please edit your answer to make that clear (including the relevant parts of your comments here), thanks!

I find this interesting and credible and I like the way you use the context to back it up. @Monica do you recognise the Rabbinical sources quoted here?
