Gibeah (gĭb'e-ah), a hill. The name of several towns. 1. Gibeah in the hill-country of Judah. Joshua 15:57; now probably Jebah, ten miles north of Hebron. 2. Gibeah of Benjamin, 1 Samuel 13:2; first mentioned in Judges 19:1-30; a shameful crime by some of its people nearly destroyed the tribe of Benjamin. Judges 20:1-48; Judges 21:1-25. 3. Gibeah of Saul, probably the same as Gibeah of Benjamin. For notices of Gibeah of Saul, see 1 Samuel 10:26; 1 Samuel 11:4; 1 Samuel 15:34; 1 Samuel 22:6; 1 Samuel 23:19; Isaiah 10:29, etc. 4 Gibeah in Kirjath-jearim was no doubt a hill in that city, 2 Samuel 6:3-4, on which the house of Abinadab stood, where the ark was left. 5. Gibeah in the field, Judges 20:31; probably the same as Geba. 6. Gibeah-ha-araloth, Joshua 5:3, margin. See Gilgal.
