Remphan

Additional Links

Remphan (rĕn'fan). Acts 7:43, and quoted from Amos 5:26, where the word in Hebrew is "Chiun." It is probable, therefore, that they are names for a god worshipped secretly by the Israelites in Egypt and in the wilderness, answering, probably, to Saturn or Moloch, the star-god.
