Adonizedek (a-dô'nî-zç'ăek or a-dŏn-i-zç'dek), lord of justice. The Amorite king of Jerusalem who organized a league with four other Amorite princes against Joshua. These confederate kings having laid siege to Gibeon, Joshua marched to the relief of his new allies and put the besiegers to flight. The five kings took refuge in a cave at Makkedah, whence they were taken and slain, their bodies hung on trees, and then buried in the place of their concealment. Joshua 10:1-27.
