Amon - Builder.
(2.) The son of Manasseh, and fourteenth king of Judah. He restored idolatry, and set up the images which his father had cast down. Zephaniah (Zephaniah 1:4; Zephaniah 3:4, Zephaniah 3:11) refers to the moral depravity prevailing in this king's reign. He was assassinated (2 Kings 21:18; 2 Chronicles 33:20) by his own servants, who conspired against him.
(3.) 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" the Revised Version "No-amon." Amon is identified with Ra, the sun-god of Heliopolis.
(4.) Nehemiah 7:59.
