 29:22   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 Tzadokis thus considered dear to God (see Ezekiel 44:15).

  • First of all – what is/are darics?

    As I read about how David had made provision for the building of the temple, I thought of how we do much the same for our children, leaving and inheritance – evidence of the fruit and toil of our years. Nothing like David of course, but maybe similar?

    How awesome it must have been for David to see everyone giving so generously of things they held in their hands to give and also of themselves. What a prayer, verses 10 – 19 and the response of the people. There are times in my life when I wish I could be in a place where something great occurs, and I'd love to have been there that day. Imagine the children watching their parents as they gave willingly to the work of building the temple.
