2 Kings 21:19-26 Expanded Bible (EXB)

Amon King of Judah

19 Amon was twenty-two years old when he became king, and he was king for two years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name was Meshullemeth daughter of Haruz, who was from Jotbah. 20 Amon did ·what the Lord said was wrong [L evil in the eyes/sight of the Lord], as his father Manasseh had done. 21 He ·lived [followed; L walked] in the same way his father had ·lived [followed; L walked]: he ·worshiped [served] the idols his father had ·worshiped [served], and he ·bowed down before [worshiped] them. 22 Amon ·rejected [abandoned; forsook] the Lord, the God of his ·ancestors [fathers], and did not ·follow [walk in] the ways of the Lord.

23 Amon’s officers ·made plans [conspired; plotted] against him and killed him in his ·palace [L house]. 24 Then the people of the land killed all those who had ·made plans [conspired; plotted] to kill King Amon, and they made his son Josiah king in his place.

25 Everything else Amon did ·is [L is it not…?] written in the book of the ·history [chronicles; annals; 1:18] of the kings of Judah. 26 He was buried in his grave in the garden of Uzza, and his son Josiah became king in his place.

Amon ·worshiped [served] and ·offered [sacrificed] sacrifices to all the carved ·idols [images] Manasseh had made. 23 Amon did not humble himself before the Lord as his father Manasseh had done. Instead, Amon ·sinned even more [L multiplied guilt].
