TSÂDÔQ > TZADOK
hebrew (צדוק)

This name derives from the Hebrew “tsâdôq > tzadok”, meaning “justice of Yahweh”. Zadok was a priest descended from Eleazar, the son of Aaron. He aided King David during the revolt of his son Absalom, and was consequently instrumental in bringing King Solomon to the throne. After Solomon's building of the first temple in Jerusalem, Zadok was the first high priest to serve there.
