|Overview - Acts 7|
|1||Stephen, permitted to answer to the accusation of blasphemy,|
|2||shows that Abraham worshipped God rightly, and how God chose the fathers,|
|20||before Moses was born, and before the tabernacle and temple were built;|
|37||that Moses himself witnessed of Christ;|
|44||and that all outward ceremonies were ordained, according to the heavenly pattern, to last but for a time;|
|51||reprehending their rebellion, and murdering of Christ, the Just One, whom the prophets foretold should come into the world.|
|54||Whereupon they stone him to death, who commends his soul to Jesus, and humbly prays for them.|
Acts 7:43 (King James Version)
Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.

- In the passage of Amos, to which Stephen refers, it is beyond Damascus; but as Assyria and Media, to which they were carried, were not only beyond Damascus, but beyond Babylon itself, he states that fact, and thus fixes more precisely the place of their captivity.
