Zadokies are descendants of Zadok, a name meaning “righteous,” a short form of Zedekiah, “the Lord is righteous.”.  Zadok was a priest, descended from Eleazar the son of Aaron (1 Chron 6:4-8).  He aided King David during the revolt of his son Absalom and was subsequently 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.
