    Default need two dimensional array help..

    If i have two arrays like the suit and number array below, how can i make a two dimensional array using String values that are like the ones stored in "suit" and "number"?

    String[] suit = {"Spade", "Hearts", "Clubs", "Diamonds"};
    String[] number = {"Ace","2","3","4","5","6","7","8","9","10","Jack" ,"Queen","King"};
    String[][] cardDeck = new String[4][13];
    for(int z = 0; z<= suit.length; z++)
    for(int y = 0; y<= number.length; y++);
    cardDeck = [suit[z]][number[y]];
