UZ

The land in which Job dwelt, Job 1:1 Jeremiah 25:20 Lamentations 4:21. The Seventy call it Ausitis. It appears to have been a region in Arabia Deserta, between Palestine, Idumaea, and the Euphrates, and most probably not far from the borders of Idumaea. It is uncertain whether its inhabitants were descendants of Uz the son of Aram, Huz the son of Nahor, or Uz the Horite, Genesis 10:23 22:21 36:28. They appear to have had much knowledge of the true God and the principles of virtue and religion.
