Amon was 22 years old when he became king, and he ruled for two years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Meshullemeth; she was Haruz's daughter and was from Jotbah.
He did what was evil in the LORD's eyes, just as his father Manasseh had done.
He walked in all the ways his father had walked. He worshipped the same worthless idols his father had worshipped, bowing down to them.
He deserted his ancestors' God, the LORD—he didn't walk in the LORD's way.
Amon's officials plotted against him and assassinated the king in his palace.
The people of the land then executed all those who had plotted against King Amon and made his son Josiah the next king.
The rest of Amon's deeds, aren't they written in the official records of Judah's kings?
He was buried in his tomb in the Uzza Garden. His son Josiah succeeded him as king.
