17  David attacked them from before dawn until the evening of the next day; none of them escaped, except four hundred young men who mounted camels and got away.

30:17   David attacked them from before dawn until the evening of the next day

David successfully defeats the Amalekites and recovers everything they had taken. Amalek represents the epitome of evil, as they sought to destroy the People of Israel for no particular reason. In the Torah, Hashem commands the Children of Israel to wipe out this evil tribe (Exodus 17:14-16; Deuteronomy 25:19). Throughout history, there have been continual battles against Amalek. Often it looks like Amalek, or their successors, might be victorious. However, in the end, God’s people always succeed. This is one of the great lessons of Jewish history. Though it may take many years, the Jewish people always overcome their enemies.
