Amon was 22 years old when he became king; he reigned two years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Meshullemeth daughter of Haruz; [she was] from Jotbah.
He did what was evil in the Lord's sight as his father Manasseh had done.
He walked in all the ways his father had walked; he served the idols his father had served, and he worshiped them.
He abandoned the Lord God of his ancestors and did not walk in the way of the Lord.
Amon's servants conspired against the king and killed him in his own house.
Then the common peoplea executed all those who had conspired against King Amon and made his son Josiah king in his place.b25
The rest of the events of Amon's [reign], along with his accomplishments, are written about in the Historical Record of Judah's Kings.
He was buried in his tomb in the garden of Uzza, and his son Josiah became king in his place.
