Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
A town of the tribe of Benjamin in the valley of Aijalon, near Jerusalem, which was occupied by those returning from exile in Babylon (Ezra 2:33; Neh 7:37; 11:34). Hadid was rebuilt and fortified by Simon Maccabeus, who later encamped here to meet the army of Tryphon (1 Macc 12:38; 13:13). It was also here that Aretas, king of Arabia, met Alexander Janneus in battle and defeated him (Josephus, Antiquities, 13.15.2).
