Smith's Bible Dictionary
Uphaz

(Jeremiah 10:9; Daniel 10:5) [OPHIR]

ATS Bible Dictionary
Uphaz

A region producing fine gold, Jeremiah 10:9 Daniel 10:5. In Hebrew it differs from Ophir by only one letter; and it is thought to denote the same region.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Probably another name for Ophir (Jeremiah 10:9). Some, however, regard it as the name of an Indian colony in Yemen, southern Arabia; others as a place on or near the river Hyphasis (now the Ghana), the south-eastern limit of the Punjaub.
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
UPHAZ

u'-faz ('uphaz): A gold-bearing region, mentioned in Jeremiah 10:9 Daniel 10:5, otherwise unknown. Perhaps in both passages Ophir, which differs in one consonant only, should be read. In the second passage, instead of "gold of Uphaz," perhaps "gold and fine gold" ('uphaz) should be read. The Jerusalem Talmud states that there were seven kinds of gold, good gold, pure, precious, gold of Uphaz, purified, refined, and red gold of Parvaim (2 Chronicles 3:6). That of Uphaz, which is so called from the place from which it comes, resembles "flashes of fire fed with pitch" (M. Schwab, The Talmud of Jerusalem, V, 207).
