International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

(1) Second son of Nahor (Ge 22:21). The word occurs again in Jer 25:23, by the side of Dedan (Ge 10:7) and Tema (Ge 25:15), and is probably, therefore, the name of a people living in the neighborhood of Edom. Buz and Hazo (Ge 22:22) are probably the countries of Bazu and Chazu (the former described as full of snakes and scorpions), which Esarhaddon invaded (KB, II, 131).

(2) A Gadite ((1Ch 5:14) (buzi), "an inhabitant of Buz"), a title given to Elihu, the fourth speaker in the Book of Job (Job 32:2).
