Bible Names N-Z: Uzzah


Uzzah in Easton's Bible Dictionary strength, a son of Abinadab, in whose house the men of Kirjath-jearim placed the ark when it was brought back from the land of the Philistines (1 Sam. 7:1). He with his brother Ahio drove the cart on which the ark was placed when David sought to bring it up to Jerusalem. When the oxen stumbled, Uzzah, in direct violation of the divine law (Num. 4:15), put forth his hand to steady the ark, and was immediately smitten unto death. The place where this occurred was henceforth called Perez-uzzah (1 Chr. 13:11). David on this feared to proceed further, and placed the ark in the house of Obed-edom the Gittite (2 Sam. 6:2-11; 1 Chr. 13:6-13).

Uzzah in Naves Topical Bible -1. Also called UZZA, son of Abinadab Driver of the cart when moving the ark of the covenant 2Sa 6:3; 1Ch 13:7 Stricken dead for touching the ark of the covenant 2Sa 6:6-8; 1Ch 13:9-11 -2. UZZAH See UZZA, Number two

Uzzah in Smiths Bible Dictionary (strength), one of the sons of Abinadab, in whose house at Kirjath-jearim the ark rested for twenty years. Uzzah probably was the second and Ahio the third. They both accompanied its removal when David first undertook to carry it to Jerusalem. (B.C. 1043.) Ahio apparently went before the new cart, 1Ch 13:7 on which it was placed, and Uzzah walked by the side. "At the threshing-floor of Nachon" 2Sa 6:6 or Chidon 1Ch 13:9 perhaps slipping over the smooth rock oxen stumbled. Uzzah caught the ark to prevent its falling. The profanation was punished by his instant death to the great grief of David, who named the place Perez-uzzah (the breaking-forth on Uzzah). But Uzzah's fate was not merely the penalty of his own rashness. The improper mode of transporting the ark, which ought to have been borne on the shoulders of the Levites was the primary cause of his unholy deed; and David distinctly recognized it as a punishment on the people in general "because we sought him not after the due order."
http://www.bible-history.com/smiths/U/Uzza+or+Uzzah/


Uzzah in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE uz'-a, uz'-a ('uzzah (2 Sam 6:6-8), otherwise `uzza' meaning uncertain): (1) One of those who accompanied the ark on its journey from Kiriath-jearim toward David's citadel (2 Sam 6:3-8, "Uzzah" = 1 Ch 13:7-11, "Uzza"). From the text of 2 Sam 6:3-8, as generally corrected with the help of Septuagint, it is supposed that Uzzah walked by the side of the ark while Ahio (or "his brother") went in front of it. The word which describes what happened to the oxen is variously translated; the Revised Version (British and American) has "stumbled"; others render it, "They let the oxen slip," "The oxen shook (the ark)." Uzzah, whatever it be that took place, caught hold of the ark; something else happened, and Uzzah died on the spot. If the word translated "rashness" (Revised Version margin) in 2 Sam 6:7 (not "error" as English Versions of the Bible) is to be kept in the text, Uzzah would be considered guilty of too little reverence for the ark; but the words "for (his) rashness" are lacking in the Septuagint (Codex Vaticanus), while 1 Ch 13:10 has "because he put forth his hand to the ark," and further no such Hebrew word as we find here is known to us. The older commentators regarded the death as provoked by non-observance of the provisions about the ark as given in the Pentateuch, but it is generally believed today that these were not known in David's time. What is clear is that Uzzah's act led to an accident of some kind, and the event was regarded by David as inauspicious, so that the journey with the ark was discontinued. We know how the Old Testament writers represent events as due to divine intervention where we would perhaps discern natural causes. (2) The garden of Uzza (2 Ki 21:18,26). Manasseh the king is said (2 Ki 21:18) to have been "buried in the garden of his own house, in the garden of Uzza"; and Amon (2 Ki 21:26) "was buried in his sepulchre in the garden of Uzza." It has been suggested that "Uzza"--"Uzziah" ('uzziyah) = Azariah" (compare 2 Ki 15:1-6). The garden of Manasseh would then be identical with that of Uzziah, by whom it was originally laid out. 2 Ch 33:20 does not mention the garden. (3) Son of Shimei, a Merarite (1 Ch 6:29 (Hebrew 14)), the Revised Version (British and American) "Uzzah," the King James Version "Uzza." (4) A descendant of Ehud, and head of a Benjamite family (1 Ch 8:7, "Uzza"). Hogg, JQR, 102 ff (1893) (see Curtis, Chron., 156-59), finds a proper name "Iglaam" in 1 Ch 8:6, and so reads "and Iglaam begot Uzza and Abishabar." (5) Head of a Nethinim family that returned from Babylon (Ezr 2:49) = "Uzza" of Neh 7:51. David Francis Roberts

Uzzah in Wikipedia According to the Tanakh, Uzzah[1] (fl. 1010 BC) was an Israelite whose death is associated with touching the Ark of the Covenant. He was the son of Abinadab, in whose house the men of Kirjath-jearim placed the Ark when it was brought back from the land of the Philistines.[2] With his brother Ahio, he drove the cart on which the ark was placed when David sought to bring it up to Jerusalem. When the oxen stumbled, Uzzah, in direct violation of the divine law,[3] steadied the ark with his hand, and was immediately killed. The place where this occurred was then called Perez-uzzah.[4] David feared to proceed further, and placed the ark in the house of Obed-edom the Gittite.[5]
