30 (A)And his servants carried him dead in a chariot from (B)Megiddo and brought him to Jerusalem and buried him in his own tomb. (C)And the people of the land took Jehoahaz the son of Josiah, and anointed him, and made him king in his father's place.

Jehoahaz's Reign and Captivity

31 (D)Jehoahaz was twenty-three years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem. His mother's name was (E)Hamutal the daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah. 32 And he did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, (F)according to all that his fathers had done. 33 And (G)Pharaoh Neco put him in bonds at (H)Riblah in the land of (I)Hamath, that he might not reign in Jerusalem, and laid on the land a tribute of a hundred talents[a] of silver and a talent of gold. 34 And (J)Pharaoh Neco made Eliakim the son of Josiah king in the place of Josiah his father, and (K)changed his name to Jehoiakim. But he took Jehoahaz away, (L)and he came to Egypt and died there.
