E'lead (Hebrews Eled , אֶלעָד, whom God has applauded; Sept., Ε᾿λεάδ Vulg. Elad), a descendant of Ephraim (1Ch 7:21), but whether through Shuthelah (q.v.), or a son of the patriarch (the second Shuthelah being taken as a repetition of the first, and Ezer and Elead as his brothers), is not determined (see Bertheau, Comment. zu Chronik, page 82). B.C. ante 1856. Perhaps he is the same with ELADAH SEE ELADAH (q.v.) in the preceding verse, who appears to have survived, if identical with ERAN (Nu 26:36).
