2 Chronicles 35:22-26

Context
35:22 But Josiah did not turn back from him; 1  he disguised himself for battle. He did not take seriously 2  the words of Necho which he had received from God; he went to fight him in the Plain of Megiddo. 3  35:23 Archers shot King Josiah; the king ordered his servants, “Take me out of this chariot, 4  for I am seriously wounded.” 35:24 So his servants took him out of the chariot, put him in another chariot that he owned, and brought him to Jerusalem, 5  where he died. He was buried in the tombs of his ancestors; 6  all the people of Judah and Jerusalem mourned Josiah. 35:25 Jeremiah composed laments for Josiah which all the male and female singers use to mourn Josiah to this very day. It has become customary in Israel to sing these; they are recorded in the Book of Laments.

35:26 The rest of the events of Josiah’s reign, including the faithful acts he did in obedience to what is written in the law of the Lord 7
