Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the various forms which this proper noun takes in Acts 7:43 see WH Notes.2, p. 92. In LXX Amos 5:26 from which the quotation in Ac is taken the form is Ῥειφάν or Ῥεφάν replacing כִּיּוּך of the Heb. text, and the word is understood as a corruption of the Assyrian name for the planet Saturn (= Chiun).
