    Zedekiah

    The Lord (is) righteousness. The last king of Judah, his name changed from Mattaniah to Zedekiah (Jer. 23:6; 33:16). See 2 Kgs. 24:17–20; 25:2–7; 1 Chr. 3:15; 2 Chr. 36:10; Jer. 1:3; 21:1–7; 24:8; 27:3, 12; 28:1; 29:3; 32:1–5; 34:2–8, 21; 37–39; 44:30; 49:34; 51:59; 52.

    Book of Mormon references to Zedekiah are many, a notable contribution being the information that not all of the sons of Zedekiah were slain (as implied in Jer. 52:10), for one son, Mulek, came to the Western Hemisphere (Hel. 8:21). See also 1 Ne. 1:4; 5:12–13; Omni 1:15; Hel. 6:10.
