Ut

Ut. (wooded).

1. A son of Aram, Genesis 10:23; 1 Chronicles 1:17, and consequently, a grandson 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; Job 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, at all events to so much of it as lies north of the 30th parallel of latitude.
