He wrote a large number of poems which have real literary value, but only a few were published, some of them in the festival prayer books of North Africa. Uziel also studied grammar, writing Ma'aneh Lashon (Amsterdam, 1627) on this subject. He translated from Spanish into Hebrew legends and fables of Indian origin well known throughout the world that were called in Latin Historia Septem Sapientium and in Hebrew Mishlei Erasto. These were first published in serial form by R. Abraham Elmaleh in the periodical, Mizrah u-Ma'arav. Uziel appears to have been one of the Amsterdam rabbis who excommunicated Uriel da Costa. As a result of his conservative extremism and excessively stern persecution of his opponents, relations between him and R. Leone Modena became strained.
