Smith’s Bible Dictionary
“Uzza” means strength
- A Benjamite of the sons of Ehud. (1 Chronicles 8:7) (B.C. 1445.)
- Elsewhere called UZZAH. (1 Chronicles 13:7,9,10,11) [UZZAH]
- The children of Uzza were a family of Nethinim who returned with Zerubbabel. (Ezra 2:49; Nehemiah 7:51) (B.C. before 536.)
- 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 23:10,11) for these names evidently denote the same person, and, in Hebrew character, are not unlike Uzzah.
