Geba

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Geba : the hill, (2 Samuel 5:25 [ 1 Chronicles 14:16, "Gibeon" ]; 2 Kings 23:8; Nehemiah 11:31), a Levitical city of Benjamin (1 Kings 15:22; 1 Samuel 13:16; 14:5, wrongly "Gibeah" in the A.V.), on the north border of Judah near Gibeah (Isaiah 10:29; Joshua 18:24,28). "From Geba to Beersheba" expressed the whole extent of the kingdom of Judah, just as "from Dan to Beersheba" described the whole length of Palestine (2 Kings 23:8). It has been identified with Gaba (Joshua 18:24; Ezra 2:26; Nehemiah 7:30), now Jeb'a, about 5 1/2 miles north of Jerusalem.
