Hi Chris,

I think you have the idea.  See a couple comments below.

> himself towrds his ultimately final end of anihalation'?

I don't know about "moving himself"; rather I think the idea is that Israel
will destroy Amelek.  I think the NIV has the translation right:  "...he
will come to ruin at last."  I think I might translate it myself "its end
will be utter ruin."  I say *utter* ruin because of `adey.  Amelek will
arrive at its end, which is ruin.  It cannot be any more ruined; its ruin it

I think that's right.  Notice that (fDeyKf T")teH or `adeyka te'teh is
parallel and basically synonomous with UBf)fH , that is uba'ah.
