21:19 Amon was twenty-two years old when he became king, and he reigned for two years in Jerusalem.29 His mother30 was Meshullemeth, the daughter of Haruz, from Jotbah. 21:20 He did evil in the sight of31 the Lord, just like his father Manasseh had done. 21:21 He followed in the footsteps of his father32 and worshiped and bowed down to the disgusting idols33 which his father had worshiped.34 21:22 He abandoned the Lord God of his ancestors and did not follow the Lord’s instructions.35 21:23 Amon’s servants conspired against him and killed the king in his palace. 21:24 The people of the land executed all those who had conspired against King Amon, and they36 made his son Josiah king in his place.
21:25 The rest of Amon’s accomplishments are recorded in the scroll called the Annals of the Kings of Judah.37 21:26 He was buried38 in his tomb in the garden of Uzzah, and his son Josiah replaced him as king.
