Uzal


U’zal (separate), the sixth son of Joktan, Gen. 10:27; 1 Chron. 1:21, whose settlements are clearly traced in the ancient name of San’à, the capital city of the Yemen (a district of Arabia), which was originally Awzál. From its position in the center of the best portion of that kingdom, it must always have been an important city. (San’à is situated about 150 miles from Aden and 100 miles from the coast of the Red Sea. It is one of the most imposing cities of Arabia.—Ed.)
