Necho (nç'ko) or Pharaoh-necho. King of Egypt. 2 Chronicles 35:20, R. V., "Neco." Son of Psammetichus. Josiah, king of Judah, being tributary to the king of Babylon, opposed Necho on his first expedition against Nebuchadnezzar, and gave him battle at Megiddo, where he received the wound of which he died. On Necho's return from the Euphrates, where he had taken and garrisoned the city of Carchemish, b.c. 610, he halted in Riblah in Syria, and sending for Jehoahaz, king of the Jews, he deposed him, loaded him with chains, and sent him into Egypt. 2 Chronicles 36:4; Then coming to Jerusalem, he set up Eliakim, or Jehoiakim, Josiah's first-born, in his place. Carchemish was retaken by the army of the king of Babylon, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim, king of Judah, Jeremiah 46:2; so that Necho did not retain his conquests in Syria more than four years. 2 Kings 23:29 to 2 Kings 24:7. "Pharaoh-necoh" in the R. V. 2 Chronicles 35:20 to 2 Chronicles 36:6.
