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.
