ō´nō ( אונו , 'ōnō ; Codex Vaticanus �Ωνάν , Ōnán ; Codex Alexandrinus �Ωνώ , Ōnṓ , and other forms): A town mentioned along with Lod as fortified by certain Benjamites ( 1 Chronicles 8:12 ). The Mishna (‛Ǎrākhı̄n ix.6) says that Joshua fortified it, but there is no such early notice of it in Scripture. It was occupied by Benjamites after the return from exile (Ezra 2:33 ; Nehemiah 7:37 ; Nehemiah 11:35 ). In one of the villages in the plain of Ono, Sanballat and his friends vainly tried to inveigle Nehemiah into a conference (Nehemiah 6:2 ). It is represented by the modern Kefr ‛Anā , which lies to the Northwest of Lydda. In 1 Esdras 5:22, the name appears as "Onus."
