Joktan's sixth son (Genesis 10:27; 1 Chronicles 1:21). The capital of the Yemen (Arabia Felix) was originally Awzal (now San'a), anciently the most flourishing of Arab communities, its rivals being Sheba and Sephar. The Greek and Roman writers (Pliny, N. H. 12:16) call it Auzara, a city of the Gebanitae. Uzal is situated on an elevation, with a stream running through it from Mount Sawafee; it has a citadel. Transl. for "going to and fro," Ezekiel 27:19, "from Uzal." This is added to "Javan" to mark which Javan is meant, Genesis 10:27.
