Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

בּוּז fut. יָבּוּז to contemn, to despise, kindred to בָּזָה. (Both of these are properly as it appears to me i.q. בּוּס to trample with the feet, which is applied to contempt, comp. Proverbs 27:7.) Const. followed by an acc. Proverbs 1:7 more often by לְ 11:12 13:13 14:21 23:9. Song of Solomon 8:1, Proverbs 6:30, לֹא יָבוּזוּ לַגַּנָּב “they do not despise a thief,” i.e. “they do not let him go unpunished,” comp. 30:17. Zechariah 4:10, בַּז in 3 pret. stands for בָּז, as if from בָּזַז. Hence the following words

בּוּז m.

(1)  contempt, Job 12:5, 31:34.

(2) [Buz], pr.n.

(a) of the second son of Nahor, Genesis 22:21 also of a people and region of Arabia Deserta, Jeremiah 25:23. The Gent. noun is בּוּזִי Job 32:2 (b) m. 1 Chronicles 5:14.
