The meaning of Amon in the Bible
(From Easton's Bible Dictionary)

builder.

  • The governor of Samaria in the time of Ahab. The prophet Micaiah was committed to his custody (I Kings 22:26; 2Chr 18:25).

  • The son of Manasseh, and fourteenth king of Judah. He restored idolatry, and set up the images which his father had cast down. (Zephaniah 1:4; 3:4,11) refers to the moral depravity prevailing in this king's reign.

    He was assassinated (II Kings 21:18-26: 2Chr 33:20-25) by his own servants, who conspired against him.

  • 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" of the Authorized version is rendered in the Revised Version "No-amon." Amon is identified with Ra, the sun-god of Heliopolis.

  • Nehemiah 7:59.
