|Previous King: Manasseh||Next King: Josiah|
The Bible gives only a brief sketch of King Amon, 15th of the 20 sovereigns of the separate kingdom of Judah. Like his father King Manasseh, he sponsored idol worship and its associated evils. Unlike Manasseh, he never repented of his evil.
After two years in office, some of his officials assassinated him. The murderers were brought to justice and sentenced to death, and Amon's son, 8-year-old Josiah, was made king.Where to read Amon's story: 2 Kings 21:19-26; 2 Chronicles 33:21-24
