(Luhd) Place name of unknown meaning. Town later called Lydda eleven miles southeast of Joppa. Shemed or perhaps Elpaal of tribe of Benjamin is credited with building it (1 Chronicles 8:12 ). Returning exiles settled there about 537 B.C. (Ezra 2:33; Nehemiah 7:37; Nehemiah 11:35 ) at what appears as the westernmost postexilic settlement though probably outside the governing authority of Sanballat of Samaria and of Judah (Nehemiah 6:2 ). See Lydda .
