    Clarke's Commentary on Deuteronomy 25:18

    Smote the hindmost of thee - See the note on Exodus 17:8. It is supposed that this command had its final accomplishment in the death of Haman and his ten sons, Esther 3. vii., ix., as from this time the memory and name of Amalek was blotted out from under heaven, for through every period of their history it might be truly said, They feared not God.
