New Defender's Study Bible Notes

34:2 did that which was right. The parallel account of Josiah’s career (II Kings 22:1–23:30) mentions Josiah’s mother Jedidah (II Kings 22:1). It seems possible that she had been influenced toward God by the belated reforms of Manasseh and, even though these had little influence on his father, young Amon, they had encouraged her in teaching little Josiah about the Lord.
