עוּץ to consult, i.q. יָעַץ; only found in imp. עֻצוּ Judges 19:30; Isaiah 8:13. Hence יְעוּץ pr.n.
II. עוּץ i.q. עוּט, غاط, غاص to impress, to im-merse oneself, e. g. the foot into sand; whence غُوطَةُ soft ground, sandy and fruitful. Hence
עוּץ (“soft and Sandy earth), [Uz], pr.n. Ausitis, Ausitœ (LXX. Αὐσῖτις, Αὐσῖται), pr.n. of a region and tribe in the northern part of the Arabian desert (بدية الشام) between Palestine, Idumæa, and the Euphrates; called by Ptolemy, verse 19, Αἰσῖται (unless this should be corrected to Αὐσῖται), Job 1:1 (compare verse Job 1:3); Jeremiah 25:20 and Lamentations 4:21 (a passage which is to be understood of the Edomites living in Ausitis). As to the origin of the nation, different accounts are given in different places; see Genesis 10:23, 22:21 36:28 [but Scripture cannot be self-contradictory]; compare Vater’s Comment on the Pentat., vol. i. p. 152.
