Geba

Additional Links
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.
