Zadok (meaning "righteous") was the High Priest of Israel during the time of David and Solomon's respecive reigns. He shared duties with Abiathar, but after Abiathar sided with Adonijah at his rebellion, Abiathar was "thrust out from being High Priest", and Zadok was alone in his duties. When he died, he was succeeded by his son Azariah I.
