Amon was twenty-two years old when he became king of Judah, and he ruled in Jerusalem for two years. His mother was Meshullemeth, the daughter of Haruz from the town of Jotbah.
Like his father Manasseh, he sinned against the Lord;
he imitated his father's actions, and he worshiped the idols that his father had worshiped.
He rejected the Lord, the God of his ancestors, and disobeyed the Lord's commands.
Amon's officials plotted against him and assassinated him in the palace.
The people of Judah killed Amon's assassins and made his son Josiah king.
Everything else that Amon did is recorded in [The History of the Kings of Judah.]
Amon was buried in the tomb in the garden of Uzza, and his son Josiah succeeded him as king.
