Zadok

Zadok (11th cent. BCE). Israelite priest. Zadok was a descendant of Aaron and together with Abiathar was King David's chief priest. At David's behest, he anointed Solomon the next king of Israel, and Solomon appointed Zadok's son as the high priest of the Temple. From then on, the high priesthood remained in the Zadokite family until the Maccabean era.
