Easton's Bible Dictionary

Uz:

fertile land. (1.) The son of Aram, and grandson of Shem (Gen 10:23; 1Ch 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.).

Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary

Uz:

counsel; words

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Uz:

(wooded).

(1.) A son of Aram (Genesis 10:23; 1 Chronicles 1:17) and consequently a grand son of Shem. (B.C. 2400‐2300)

(2.) A son of Nahor by Milcah (Genesis 22:21). Authorized Version, Huz. (B.C. about 1900)

(3.) A son of Dishan, and grandson of Seir (Genesis 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 Palestine (Job 1:3) adjacent to the Sabaeans and the Chaldaeans (Job 1:15; 1:17) 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 (Lamentations 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, as all events to so much of it as lies north of the 30th parallel of latitude.
