Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Uzza
UZZA . 1 . A Benjamite family ( 1 Chronicles 8:7 ). 2 . A family of Nethinim ( Ezra 2:48 = Nehemiah 7:51 [ 1Es 5:31 Ozias ]). 3 . The driver of the cart on which the ark was removed from Kiriath-jearim ( 2 Samuel 6:3 ; 2 Samuel 6:6-8 [in 2 Samuel 6:6-8 the name is Uzzah ] = 1 Chronicles 13:7 ; 1 Chronicles 13:9-11 ). Uzza’s sudden death at a place called, in commemoration of this untoward incident, Perez-uzzah (‘breach of Uzzah’), led to the temporary abandonment of David’s project of transporting the ark to Jerusalem. Uzza’s death was attributed by the popular mind to anger on the part of Jahweh at his having presumed to handle the sacred emhlem too familiarly. 4 . A ‘garden of Uzza’ ( 2 Kings 21:18 ; 2 Kings 21:26 ) was attached to the palace of Manasseh.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Perez-Uzza
PEREZ-UZZA or PEREZ-UZZAH ("Uzzah's breaking"). (See PERAZIM.) 1 Chronicles 13:11; 1 Chronicles 15:13; 2 Samuel 6:8. So David named Nachon's or Chidoh's threshing floor, because Jehovah made a breach or breaking forth on Uzzah for his presumptuous rashness in stretching forth his hand to support the shaken ark. Now Khirbet el Uz or Auz, two miles from Kirjath Jearim, on the hill above Chesla (Chesalon), a short way before Kuryet es Saideh, "the blessed city," i.e. the abode of Obed Edom whom God" blessed." Uzzah was a Kohathite Levite (Josephus, Ant. 6:1, section 4). The ark was taken to his father Abinadab's house, as subsequently to Obed Edom's, just because he was a Levite. Probably the Amminadab of 1 Chronicles 15:10, of Kohath's family (1 Chronicles 6:18); Numbers 4:5; Numbers 4:15, shows the Kohathites were to bear but not to touch the ark, which was the office of Aaron's family. So ministers claiming the sacerdotal priest's office usurp Christ's office at their peril.
