1. Son and successor of Manasseh in the throne of Judah ("skillful in his art", Hebrew). Possibly the name was given by Manasseh, when an idolater, from the Egyptian god. He reigned from 642 B.C. to 640 (2 Kings 21:19; 2 Chronicles 33:20). His own servants conspired and slew him in his own house, and in their turn were slain by the people, who raised his son Josiah to the throne.

2. Governor of the city under Ahab (1 Kings 22:26).
