Smith's Bible Dictionary
Remphan

(Acts 7:43) and Chiun, (Amos 5:26) have been supposed to be names of an idol worshipped secretly by the Israelites in the wilderness, difficulty has been occasioned by this corresponding occurrence of two names so wholly different in sound. The most reasonable opinion seems to be that Chiun was a Hebrew or Semitic name, and Remphan an Egyptian equivalent substituted by the LXX. This idol corresponded probably to Saturn or Molech. The mention of Chiun or Remphan as worshipped in the desert shows that this idolatry was, in part at least that of foreigners, and no doubt of those settled in lower Egypt.

ATS Bible Dictionary
Remphan

An idol, the same as Chiun. Compare Am 5:26 Acts 7:43. See CHIUN.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
(Acts 7:43; R.V., "Rephan"). In Amos 5:26 the Hebrews Chiun (q.v.) is rendered by the LXX. "Rephan," and this name is adopted by Luke in his narrative of the Acts. These names represent the star-god Saturn or Moloch.
