(Uzʹza) [(Jehovah is) strength].
2. A name connected with a garden. Kings Manasseh and Amon of Judah were buried in the garden of Uzza instead of the usual royal burial places. (2 Ki. 21:18, 23, 26) Neither Uzza nor the garden are otherwise known. Since persons were buried there, the place could not have been in the temple grounds and, since the royal palace adjoined the temple, the “house” of Manasseh in the garden of Uzza may have been a summer residence. Some suggest that King Uzz(i)ah made the garden.
