Zedekiah was the High Priest of Solomon's Temple that succeeded Pediah. According to Josephus Zedekiah (Sudeas) was the son of Pediah (Phideas).[1] He also appears in the High Priest list of the medieval chronicle Seder 'Olam Zuta. Zedekiah is never mentioned in the Tanakh, his name doesn't appear in the list of the Zadokite dynasty (I Chr. 5:30-40, 6:4-15 in other translations).
