E'hud. (union).

1. Ehud, son of Bilhah, and great-grandson of Benjamin, the patriarch. 1 Chronicles 7:10; 1 Chronicles 8:6.

2. Ehud, son of Gera, of the tribe of Benjamin, Judges 3:15, the second judge of the Israelites. (B.C. About 1370). In the Bible, he is not called a judge, but a deliverer, (l.c).: so Othniel, Judges 3:9, and all the Judges. Nehemiah 9:27.

As a Benjamite, he was specially chosen to destroy Eglon, who had established himself in Jericho, which was included in the boundaries of that tribe. He was very strong, and left-handed. See Eglon.
