The land of Uz is mentioned in Lamentations 4:21 as home to the "daughter of Edom." Edom was the same as Esau, brother of Jacob, who later moved into the region, around the southern end of the Dead Sea. It was probably originally named after Uz, the grandson of Seir the Horite (Genesis 36:20-21,28), who gave his own name to Mount Seir, in the land of Edom. He, in turn, may have been named after Uz, the grandson of the patriarch, Shem (Genesis 10:21-23). Alternatively, the latter may himself have first settled this region.
