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
, 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.
