Bible Names A-G: Ehud


Ehud in Easton's Bible Dictionary union. (1.) A descendant of Benjamin (1 Chr. 7:10), his great-grandson. (2.) The son of Gera, of the tribe of Benjamin (Judg. 3:15). After the death of Othniel the people again fell into idolatry, and Eglon, the king of Moab, uniting his bands with those of the Ammonites and the Amalekites, crossed the Jordan and took the city of Jericho, and for eighteen years held that whole district in subjection, exacting from it an annual tribute. At length Ehud, by a stratagem, put Eglon to death with a two- edged dagger a cubit long, and routed the Moabites at the fords of the Jordan, putting 10,000 of them to death. Thenceforward the land, at least Benjamin, enjoyed rest "for fourscore years" (Judg. 3:12-30). (See QUARRIES T0003032 [2].) But in the south-west the Philistines reduced the Israelites to great straits (Judg. 5:6). From this oppression Shamgar was raised up to be their deliverer.

Ehud in Fausset's Bible Dictionary (See EGLON.) An hereditary name in Benjamin (1 Chronicles 7:10; 1 Chronicles 8:6). The second of the judges was son of Gera, also an hereditary name in Benjamin (Genesis 46:21; 2 Samuel 16:5; 1 Chronicles 8:3). Israel's "deliverer," under God, from the Moabite Eglon who had crossed the Jordan westward, and seized Jericho, in Ehud's tribe, Benjamin (Judges 3:9; Judges 3:12-30; Nehemiah 9:27, "saviors".) He could use his left hand as readily as his right hand (Judges 20:16). "He made him" a dagger; for, as under the Philistines (1 Samuel 13:19) so now under Moab the making of iron weapons publicly was forbidden. He girt on" his right thigh" where its presence would never be suspected, the left being the sword side and where to his left hand it would be most convenient. He may have been one of the 600 left-handed slingers who escaped to the Rock Rimmon just thirteen years before.

Ehud in Smiths Bible Dictionary (union). 1. Ehud son of Bilhah, and great-grandson of Benjamin the patriarch. 1Ch 7:10; 8:6 2. Ehud son of Gera, of the tribe of Benjamin, Jud 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, Jud 3:9 and all the Judges. Ne 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. [EGLON]

Ehud in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE e'-hud (ehudh, "united," "strong"): A Benjamite, son of Gera, deliverer of Israel from oppression by Moab (Jdg 3:15-30). Gaining access alone to the presence of King Eglon under pretense of a secret errand connected with the payment of Israel's tribute, Ehud, a left-handed man, drew the sword he had concealed upon his right side, and thrust the king through. He locked the doors of the upper chamber after him, made his escape, and with the Israelites overcame Moab at the fords of the Jordan, slaying some 10,000. Ehud's name occurs again in the Benjamite genealogy (1 Ch 7:10).

Ehud in Wikipedia Ehud ben‑Gera (Hebrew: אֵהוּד בֶּן‑גֵּרָא‎, Standard Ehud ben‑Gera Tiberian ʾĒhḏ ben‑Gērāʾ; in the Biblical Book of Judges (3:124:1) was the judge who fought against the Moabite coalition, led by King Eglon. Ehud was sent to present the Israelite's annual tribute. He had blacksmiths make a short double-edged sword about twelve inches long: useful for a stabbing thrust. He hid the sword on his inner right thigh. Being left-handed, he could conceal the sword where it was not expected. Ehud told Eglon he had a secret thing or word for him. Eglon dismissed his attendants and allowed Ehud to meet him in private. Ehud said, "I have a word/thing from God for you", drew his sword, and stabbed the king. Eglon was eviscerated by the blow, which punctured his intestines: "and the dirt came out." ("Dirt" here euphemistically refers to excrement; NOAB, Judges 3:2122, footnote.) Eglon was so overweight that the sword disappeared into the wound and Ehud left it there...
