Bible Names N-Z: Uz


Uz in Easton's Bible Dictionary fertile land. (1.) The son of Aram, and grandson of Shem (Gen. 10:23; 1 Chr. 1:17). (2.) One of the Horite "dukes" in the land of Edom (Gen. 36:28). (3.) The eldest son of Nahor, Abraham's brother (Gen. 22:21, R.V.).

Uz in Fausset's Bible Dictionary UZ, or more correctly Huz (Genesis 22:21). A country and a people near the Sabeans and the Chaldees (Job 1:1; Job 1:15; Job 1:17); accessible to the Temanites, the Shuhites (Job 2:11), and the Buzites (Job 32:2). The Edomites once possessed it (Jeremiah 25:20; Lamentations 4:21). Suited for sheep, oxen, asses, and camels (Job 1:3). From an inscription of Esarhaddon it appears there were in central Arabia, beyond the jebel Shomer, about the modern countries of upper and lower Kaseem, two regions, Bazu and Khazu, answering to Buz and Huz. Uz therefore was in the middle of northern Arabia, not far from the famous district of the Nejd. Ptolemy mentions the Aesitae (related to "Uz") as in the northern part of Arabia Deserta, near Babylon and the Euphrates. The name occurs (1) in Genesis 10:23 as son of Aram and grandson (as "son" means in 1 Chronicles 1:17) of Shem; (2) as son of Nahor by Milcah (Genesis 22:21); (3) as son of Dishan and grandson of Seir (Genesis 36:28). Evidently the more ancient and northerly members of the Aramaic family coalesced with some of the later Abrahamids holding a central position in Mesopotamia, and subsequently with those still later, the Edomites of the S.

Uz in Smiths Bible Dictionary (wooded). 1. A son of Aram, Ge 10:23; 1Ch 1:17 end consequently a grand son of Shem. (B.C. 2400-2300.) 2. A son of Nahor by Milcah. Ge 22:21 Authorized Version, Huz. (B.C. about 1900.) 3. A son of Dishan, and grandson of Seir. Ge 36:28 (B.C. after 1800.) 4. The country in which Job lived. Job 1:1 As far as we can gather, "the land of Uz" lay either east or southeast of Israel, Job 1:3 adjacent to the Sabaeans and the Chaldaeans, Job 1:15,17 consequently north of the southern Arabians and west of the Euphrates; and, lastly, adjacent to the Edomites of Mount Seir, who at one period occupied Uz, probably as conquerors, La 4:21 and whose troglodyte habits are described in Job 30:6,7 From the above data we infer that the land of Uz corresponds to the Arabia Deserta of classical geography, at all events to so much of it as lies north of the 30th parallel of latitude.

Uz in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE uz (uts 'erets uts; Os, Ox, Ausitis): Biblical Data: (1) In Gen 10:23 Uz is the oldest son of Aram and grandson of Shem, while in 1 Ch 1:17 Uz is the son of Shem. Septuagint inserts a passage which supplies this lacking name. As the tables of the nations in Gen 10 are chiefly geographical and ethnographical, Uz seems to have been the name of a district or nation colonized by or descended from Semites of the Aramean tribe or family. (2) The son of Nahor by Milcah, and older brother of Buz (Gen 2:21). Here the name is doubtless personal and refers to an individual who was head of a clan or tribe kindred to that of Abraham. (3) A son of Dishan, son of Seir the Horite (Gen 36:28), and personal name of a Horite or perhaps of mixed Horite and Aramean blood. (4) The native land and home of Job (Job 1:1), and so situated as to be in more or less proximity to the tribe of the Temanites (Job 2:11), the Shuhites (Job 2:11), the Naamathites (Job 2:11), the Buzites (Job 32:2), and open to the inroads of the Chaldeans (Job 1:17), and the Sabeans (Job 1:15 the Revised Version (British and American)), as well as exposed to the great Arabian Desert (1:19). See the next article. (5) A kingdom of some importance somewhere in Southern Syria and not far from Judea, having a number of kings (Jer 25:20). (6) A kingdom, doubtless the same as that of Jer 25:20 and inhabited by or in subjection to the Edomites (Lam 4:21), and hence not far from Edom. James Josiah Reeve

Uz in Wikipedia According to the Table of nations of Genesis 10 in the Hebrew Bible, Uz is one of the sons of Aram, son of Shem.[1] This makes him the great-grandson of Noah. He may have given his name to an area of the Middle East, later inhabited by the Old Testament character Job. Flavius Josephus (Ant. 1.6.4) states the tradition that he founded the cities of Trachonitis and Damascus.
