Job 1:1-3 (KJV)
1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil. 2 And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters. 3 His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east.
We all know about the Wizard of Oz, but where was the land of Uz? Was it ancient Edom? Was it Bashan? Uz was the son of Aram, and grandson of Shem. But Huz was the son of Nahor. And there is Uz the Horite.
Consensus, for now, shall be … Edom.
