21 Amon was twenty and two years old when he began to reign; and he reigned two years in Jerusalem.
22 And he did that which was evil in the sight of YHWH, as did Manasseh his father; and Amon sacrificed unto all the graven images which Manasseh his father had made, and served them.
22 And he did evil in the sight of the Lord, just as his father Manasseh had done. And he immolated to all the idols that Manasseh had fabricated, and he served them.
23 And he humbled not himself before YHWH, as Manasseh his father had humbled himself; but this same Amon became guilty more and more.
23 And he was not humbled before the Lord as his father Manasses was humbled; for his son Amon abounded in transgression.
23 But he did not turn his face to the Lord, as his father Manasseh had turned himself. And he sinned much more grievously.
24 And his servants conspired against him, and put him to death in his own house.
25 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.
25 And the people of the land slew the men who had conspired against king Amon; and the people of the land made Josias his son king in his stead.
25 But the rest of the multitude of the people, having slain those who had struck down Amon, appointed his son, Josiah, as king in his place.
