Uzza

Additional Links

Uz'za. (strength).

1. A Benjamite of the sons of Ehud. 1 Chronicles 8:7. (B.C. 1445).

2. Elsewhere called Uzzah. 1 Chronicles 13:7; 1 Chronicles 13:9-11. See Uzzah.

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

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