CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
7:43 Ye took up - Probably not long after the golden calf: but secretly; else Moses would have mentioned it. The shrine - A small, portable chapel, in which was the image of their god. Moloch was the planet Mars, which they worshipped under a human shape. Remphan, that is, Saturn, they represented by a star. And I will carry you beyond Babylon - That is, beyond Damascus (which is the word in Amos) and Babylon. This was fulfilled by the king of Assyria, 2Kings 17:6.

1 Kings 11:7
On the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, he even built a pagan shrine for Chemosh, the detestable god of Moab, and another for Molech, the detestable god of the Ammonites.
They have built pagan shrines to Baal in the valley of Ben-Hinnom, and there they sacrifice their sons and daughters to Molech. I have never commanded such a horrible deed; it never even crossed my mind to command such a thing. What an incredible evil, causing Judah to sin so greatly!
"Was it to me you were bringing sacrifices and offerings during the forty years in the wilderness, Israel?
No, you served your pagan gods--Sakkuth your king god and Kaiwan your star god--the images you made for yourselves.
So I will send you into exile, to a land east of Damascus," says the LORD, whose name is the God of Heaven's Armies.
