(1) Second son of Nahor (Gen 22:21). The word occurs again in Jer 25:23, by the side of Dedan (Gen 10:7) and Tema (Gen 25:15), and is probably, therefore, the name of a people living in the neighborhood of Edom. Buz and Hazo (Gen 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 (1 Ch 5:14) (buzi), "an inhabitant of Buz"), a title given to Elihu, the fourth speaker in the Book of Job (Job 32:2).
