(ehd) Place name meaning, “witness.” Altar that the tribes assigned territory east of the Jordan built as a witness that Yahweh is God of both the eastern and western tribes. The building resulted in a dispute between the two groups of tribes, but Phinehas, the priest, helped settle the dispute, ensuring the altar was a symbol and would not be used for burnt offering (Joshua 22:34 ). NAS, NIV, NRSV read, “witness.”
