    He was assassinated (2 Kings 21:18-26: 2Chr 33:20-25) by his own servants, who conspired against him.

  • An Egyptian god, usually depicted with a human body and the head of a ram, referred to in Jeremiah 46:25, where the word "multitudes" in the Authorized Version is more appropriately rendered "Amon" in the Revised Version. In Nahum 3:8 the expression "populous No" of the Authorized version is rendered in the Revised Version "No-amon." Amon is identified with Ra, the sun-god of Heliopolis.

  • Nehemiah 7:59.
