Amon (in the Bible)
Amon (ā´mŏn) [Heb.,=trustworthy]. 1 King of Judah (642–640 BC), son and successor of Manasseh. According to Chronicles, he was inattentive to the worship of God, and the accounts accordingly denounce him strongly. However, his worship of other gods indicates that he, like his father, was an Assyrian vassal. Amon was murdered, and Josiah succeeded him. 2 In the Bible, Ahab's governor of Samaria.
