Amon was twenty-two years old when he began to reign; and he reigned two years in Jerusalem; and his mother's name was Meshullemeth, daughter of Haruz of Jotbah.
And he did evil in the sight of Jehovah, as Manasseh his father had done;
and he walked in all the way that his father had walked in, and served the idols that his father had served, and worshipped them;
and he forsook Jehovah the God of his fathers, and walked not in the way of Jehovah.
And the servants of Amon conspired against him, and slew the king in his own house.
But the people of the land smote all them that had conspired against king Amon; and the people of the land made Josiah his son king in his stead.
And the rest of the acts of Amon, what he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
And he was buried in his sepulchre in the garden of Uzza; and Josiah his son reigned in his stead.
