Rephan

Additional Links

REPHAN (AV [Note: Authorized Version.] Remphan ). A word which replaces Chiun of the Hebrew text of Amos 5:26 , both in the LXX [Note: Septuagint.] and in the quotation in Acts 7:48 . The generally accepted explanation of this word is that Rephan (the preferable form) is a corruption and transliteration of Kewan ( Kaiwan, Kaawan see Chiun) r having somehow mistakenly replaced k , and w (the Hebrew wau or vav ) having been transliterated ph (the Gr. phi ).
