Buz; Buzi; Buzite

Resource Toolbox

buz , bū´zı̄ , buz´ı̄t ( בּוּז , būz ):

(1) Second son of Nahor (Genesis 22:21 ). The word occurs again in Jeremiah 25:23 , by the side of Dedan (Genesis 10:7 ) and Tema (Genesis 25:15 ), and is probably, therefore, the name of a people living in the neighborhood of Edom. Būz and Hazo (Genesis 22:22 ) are probably the countries of Bâzu and , Ḥazû (the former described as full of snakes and scorpions), which Esarhaddon invaded (KB, II, 131).

(2) A G adite (1 Chronicles 5:14 ) (בּוזי , būzı̄ ), "an inhabitant of Buz"), a title given to Elihu, the fourth speaker in the Book of Job (Job 32:2 ).
