22 and they ate and drank in the presence of Hashem on that day with great joy. They again proclaimed Shlomo son of David king, and they anointed him as ruler before Hashem, and Tzadok as Kohen Gadol.

The name Tzadok (צדוק) comes from the Hebrew word tzedek (צדק) which means ‘justice’ or ‘righteousness’. Tzadok was a righteous priest who served in the times of King David and King Shlomo. After King Shlomo built the Beit Hamikdash, Tzadok was the first to serve as its High Priest. Tzadok and his descendants displayed loyalty and commitment to Hashem, and ‘the house of Tzadok’ is thus considered dear to God (see Ezekiel 44:15).
