ELEAD ĕl’ ĭ əd (אֶלְעָ֑ד, LXX ̓Ελεαδ, God has testified). One of the descendants of Ephraim who was killed by the men of Gath while making a raid on their cattle. This tragedy moved Ephraim to call his next son Beriah, a name which in popular etymology may have been associated with the word “evil” (1 Chron 7:21).
