Ono: A town of Benjamin, in the "plain of Ono"
(1 Chronicles 8:12; Ezra 2:33) now
Kefr 'Ana, 5 miles north of Lydda, and about 30 miles north-west of
Jerusalem. Not succeeding in their attempts to deter Nehemiah from
rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, Sanballat and Tobiah resorted to
strategem, and pretending to wish a conference with him, they invited
him to meet them at Ono. Four times they made the request, and every
time Nehemiah refused to come. Their object was to take him prisoner.
