Geba (gç'-bah), hill. A Levitical city of Benjamin, Joshua 21:17; 1 Chronicles 6:60; also called Gaba. Joshua 18:24. It was held by the Philistines, but taken by Jonathan, 1 Samuel 13:3 : was a northern landmark of Judah, 2 Kings 23:8; was rebuilt by Asa, 1 Kings 15:22; held by the Assyrians, Isaiah 10:29; peopled by Benjamites after the captivity, Ezra 2:26. Geba and Gibeah appear to be sometimes confounded in the English Version (see 1 Samuel 14:5), though they were separate towns. Geba was near Michmash and on the south side of the ravine. It has been identified with Jeba, a deserted village 6 miles north of Jerusalem.
