Uzza


Uz’za (strength).

1. A Benjamite of the sons of Ehud. 1 Chron. 8:7. (b.c. 1445.)

2. Elsewhere called Uzzah. 1 Chron. 13:7, 9, 10, 11. [Uzzah.]

3. The children of Uzza were a family of Nethinim who returned with Zerubbabel. Ezra 2:49; Neh. 7:51. (b.c. before 536.)

4. Properly Uzzah. As the text now stands, Uzzah is a descendant of Merari, 1 Chron. 6:29 (14); but there appears to be a gap in the verse. Perhaps he is the same as Zina or Zizah, the son of Shimei. 1 Chron. 23:10, 11; for these names evidently denote the same person, and, in Hebrew character, are not unlike Uzzah.
