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 the daughter of Haruz of Jotbah.
He did that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh, as did Manasseh his father.
He walked in all the way that his father walked in, and served the idols that his father served, and worshiped them:
and he forsook Yahweh, the God of his fathers, and didn't walk in the way of Yahweh.
The servants of Amon conspired against him, and put the king to death in his own house.
But the people of the land killed all those who had conspired against king Amon; and the people of the land made Josiah his son king in his place.
Now the rest of the acts of Amon which he did, aren't they written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah?
He was buried in his tomb in the garden of Uzza: and Josiah his son reigned in his place.
