(2.) The son and successor of Zadok in the office of highpriest (1 Chr. 6:8, 53). On the occasion of the revolt of
Absalom he remained faithful to David, and was of service to himin conveying to him tidings of the proceedings of Absalom in
Jerusalem (2 Sam. 15:24-37; 17:15-21). He was swift of foot, andwas the first to carry to David tidings of the defeat of
Absalom, although he refrained, from delicacy of feeling, fromtelling him of his death (2 Sam. 18:19-33).
