The descendents of Elpaal in Ono and Lod (1 Chr 8:12-8:12)

“The sons of Elpaal were Eber, Misham, and Shemed, who built Ono and Lod with its towns.”

The Benjaminite Elpaal had 3 sons. This (1) Eber is not to be confused with the son of Shem, the father of the Hebrews. (2) Misham and (3) Shemed only appear here. Supposedly these 3 men build the cities of Ono, about 30 miles northwest of Jerusalem in the plain of Ono, and Lod, which may be the same as Lydda, near Joppa.
