Uzza

Uzza [N] [E]

(strength ).

  1. A Benjamite of the sons of Ehud. ( 1 Chronicles 8:7 ) (B.C. 1445.)
  2. Elsewhere called UZZAH. ( 1 Chronicles 13:7 1 Chronicles 13:9 1 Chronicles 13:10 1 Chronicles 13:11 ) [UZZAH]
  3. The children of Uzza were a family of Nethinim who returned with Zerubbabel. ( Ezra 2:49 ; Nehemiah 7:51 ) (B.C. before 536.)
  4. Properly Uzzah. As the text now stands, Uzzah is a descendant of Merari, ( 1 Chronicles 6:29 ) (14); but there appears to be a gap in the verse. Perhaps he is the same as Zina or Zizah the son of Shimei. ( 1 Chronicles 23:10 1 Chronicles 23:11 ) for these names evidently denote the same person, and, in Hebrew character, are not unlike Uzzah.
