Amon was twenty and 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.
And he did that which was evil in the sight of Jehovah, as did Manasseh his father.
And he walked in all the way that his father walked in, and served the idols that his father served, and worshipped them:
and he forsook Jehovah, the God of his fathers, and walked not in the way of Jehovah.
And the servants of Amon conspired against him, and put the king to death in his own house.
But the people of the land slew all them that had conspired against king Amon; and the people of the land made Josiah his son king in his stead.
