(yooz' zuh) Personal name meaning, “strength.” Levite assisting with David's aborted transfer of the ark to Jerusalem (2 Samuel 6:1-5 ). Rather than carrying the ark with poles (see Exodus 25:10-25 ), the ark was transported by oxcart (see 1 Samuel 6:7-12 where the Philistines sent the ark home by oxcart). When the oxen shook the ark, Uzzah grabbed the ark to steady it. The Lord's anger “burst forth” (NRSV) against Uzzah, who was struck dead ( 2 Samuel 6:6-8 ). See Perez-Uzzah .
