2 Chronicles 35:20-27 - The Death Of Josiah

20 After all this, when Josiah prepared the house, Necho king of Egypt came up to war against Carchemish upon Phrath: and Josiah will go forth to meet him. 21 And he will send messengers to him, saying, What to me and to thee, thou king of Judah? Not against thee this day, but against the house of my war: and God said to hasten me: cease to thyself from God who is with me, and he will not destroy thee.

22 And Josiah turned not his face from him, but to fight with him he disguised himself, and he heard not to the words of Necho from the mouth of God; and he will go forth to fight in the valley of Megiddo. 23 And the archers will shoot at king Josiah; and the king will say to his servants, Cause me to pass away; for I was made sick greatly. 24 And his servants will cause him to pass from the chariot, and they will cause him to ride in the second chariot which was to him; and they will cause him to go to Jerusalem, and he will die, and be buried in the graves of his fathers. And all Judah and Jerusalem mourning for Josiah. 25 And Jeremiah will lament for Josiah: and all the singing men and singing women will speak concerning Josiah in their lamentations, even to this day, and they will give them for a law upon Israel: and behold them written upon the lamentations.

26 And the rest of the words of Josiah and his mercies as written in the law of Jehovah, 27 And his words, the first and the last, behold them written upon the book of the kings of Israel and Judah.
