29 1In his days 2Pharaoh Neco king of Egypt went up to the king of Assyria to the river Euphrates. And King Josiah went to meet him, and when Pharaoh Neco saw him he killed him at 3Megiddo.
30 4His servants drove his body in a chariot from Megiddo, and brought him to Jerusalem and buried him in his own tomb. 5Then the people of the land took Jehoahaz the son of Josiah and anointed him and made him king in place of his father.
