Josiah causeth the book to be read in a solemn assembly. He reneweth the Covenant of Yahweh. He destroyeth idolatry. He burneth dead men's bones upon the altar of Beth-el, as was foreprophesied. He keepeth a most solemn Passover. He putteth away witches and all abomination. God's final wrath against Judah. Josiah, provoking Pharaoh-nechoh, is slain at Megiddo. Jehoahaz, succeeding him, is imprisoned by Pharaoh-nechoh, who maketh Jehoiakim king. Jehoiakim's wicked reign.
