Amon was of two and twenty years, when he began to reign; and he reigned two years in Jerusalem; the name of his mother was Meshullemeth, the daughter of Haruz of Jotbah.
And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, as Manasseh, his father, had done.
And he went in all the way, by which his father had gone, and he served to [the] uncleannesses, that is, (the) idols, to which his father had served, and he worshipped those;
and he forsook the Lord God of his fathers, and he went not in the way of the Lord.
And his servants setted treasons to him, and killed the king in his house. (And his servants set treason against him, and killed the king in his own house.)
Soothly the people of the Lord smote all the men, that had conspired against king Amon, and they ordained to them a king, Josiah, his son, for him. (And the people of the Lord struck down all those who had conspired against King Amon, and they ordained for themselves Josiah, Amon's son, to be king in his place.)
Forsooth the residue of [the] words of Amon, (and all the things) which he did, whether these be not written in the book of [the] words of [the] days of the kings of Judah?
And he slept with his fathers, and they buried him in the sepulchre in the garden of Uzza; and Josiah, his son, reigned for him.
