Ono

ONO (ō'nō, Heb. ’ônô, strong). A town ascribed to Benjamin in 1Chr.8.12 because it was built by Shemed, a Benjamite, though it was in the territory originally assigned to the tribe of Dan. It lay in the plain, near the Valley of the Craftsmen (Neh.11.35) and was about six miles (ten km.) SE of Joppa. Many of its men returned from captivity with Zerubbabel (Ezra.2.33), and the town was later inhabited by men of Benjamin (Neh.11.35). Nehemiah refused an invitation to go there (Neh.6.2).
