Bible: 2 Kings 21:19-26

Amon’s Reign over Judah

21:19 Amon was twenty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned for two years in Jerusalem. 1  His mother 2  was Meshullemeth, the daughter of Haruz, from Jotbah. 21:20 He did evil in the sight of 3  the Lord, just like his father Manasseh had done. 21:21 He followed in the footsteps of his father 4  and worshiped and bowed down to the disgusting idols 5  which his father had worshiped. 6  21:22 He abandoned the Lord God of his ancestors and did not follow the Lord’s instructions. 7  21:23 Amon’s servants conspired against him and killed the king in his palace. 21:24 The people of the land executed all those who had conspired against King Amon, and they 8  made his son Josiah king in his place.

21:25 The rest of Amon’s accomplishments are recorded in the scroll called the Annals of the Kings of Judah. 9  21:26 He was buried 10  in his tomb in the garden of Uzzah, and his son Josiah replaced him as king.
