Buz in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
buz, bu'-zi, buz'-it ( buz):
(1) Second son of Nahor (Gen 22:21). The word occurs again in
Jer 25:23, by the side of Dedan (Gen 10:7) and Tema (Gen
25:15), and is probably, therefore, the name of a people
living in the neighborhood of Edom. Buz and Hazo (Gen 22:22)
are probably the countries of Bazu and Chazu (the former
described as full of snakes and scorpions), which Esarhaddon
invaded (KB, II, 131).
(2) A Gadite (1 Ch 5:14) (buzi), "an inhabitant of Buz"), a
title given to Elihu, the fourth speaker in the Book of Job
