Amon - King of Judah




Name Means "The Lord has given."
Reference II Kings 21:19-26
II Chronicles 33:21-25
Reign 2 years
Theme Often, time simply runs out.
Lesson Don't put off repentance.
Key Verse "And (Amon) humbled not himself before the LORD, as Manasseh his father had humbled himself; but Amon trespassed more and more" (II Chronicles 33:23).
Memory Verse "Behold, now is the day of salvation" (II Corinthians 6:2).
Application To Christians who are living out of God's will, allow this rephrasing of the above-mentioned verse from II Corinthians: "Behold, now is the day of repentance."
Spiritual Epitaph "And his servants conspired against him, and slew him in his own house" (II Chronicles 33:24).

Little is said of the vile king who reigned just two years, but what is said speakes volumes. "He did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, as did Manasseh his father ... but .. trespassed more and more" (II Chronicles 33:22-23). That Amon is linked to his father in the magnitude of his sin is indeed a blaring condemnation of his life. That he continued to add to it is almost unimaginable. If Amon had any thoughts of repenting as his father had done, his plans were cut short when his own officials conspired against him and assassinated him.
