Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Lod
A town of Benjamin, founded by Shamed or Shamer (1 Chronicles 8:12). Lydda in Acts 9:32-33; in the vale of Sharon between the hills and the Mediterranean. (See LYDDA.) Here Peter healed Aeneas of palsy. Now Ludd.

Holman Bible Dictionary - Lod
(Luhd) Place name of unknown meaning. Town later called Lydda eleven miles southeast of Joppa. Shemed or perhaps Elpaal of tribe of Benjamin is credited with building it (1 Chronicles 8:12 ). Returning exiles settled there about 537 B.C. (Ezra 2:33 ; Nehemiah 7:37 ; Nehemiah 11:35 ) at what appears as the westernmost postexilic settlement though probably outside the governing authority of Sanballat of Samaria and of Judah (Nehemiah 6:2 ). See Lydda .

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Lod, Lydda
LOD, LYDDA. A town in the territory of Benjamin, not apparently of pre-Israelite origin, but built ( 1 Chronicles 8:12 ), along with One, by the Benjamite Shemed (but Luthen and Auanau occur side by side in the lists of Thothmes iii.). Elsewhere it is mentioned only in the post-Captivity lists ( Ezra 2:33 , Nehemiah 7:37 ; Nehemiah 11:35 ); and in connexion with the healing of Æneas at this place ( Acts 9:32 ). Its inhabitants were enslaved by Cassius, and freed by Antony (Jos. [Note: Josephus.] Ant . XIV. xi. 2, xii. 2). Cestius Gallus burned it, and it afterwards surrendered to Vespasian ( BJ . II. xix. 1, IV. viii. 1). In the Middle Ages it was the seat of a bishopric. It is a centre of the cultus of that strange being called by the Christians Saint George (to whom the church is dedicated), and by the Muslims el-Khudr probably an ancient spirit of vegetation. It was known as Diospolis in the Byzantine period, but the dirty modern town which represents the ancient site retains the old name Ludd .
