mā´a - re - gē´ba , - gā´ba ( גּבע מערה , ma‛ărēh gebha‛ ; Septuagint: Codex Vaticanus Μαρααγάβε , Maraagábe ; Codex Alexandrinus δυσμῶν τῆς Γαβαύ , dusmṓn tḗs Gabaá ): The place where the men of Israel lay in ambush, from which they broke forth upon the children of Benjamin ( Judges 20:33 ). the King James Version renders "the meadows of Gibeah," the Revised Version margin "the meadow of Geba (or Gibeah)." The Septuagint's Codex Alexandrinus affords a clue to the correct reading. It to read place-name. The text must be emended to read mimma -‛ărābh legebha‛ , "to the West of Geba." Peshitta suggests a reading mimme -‛ārath gebha‛ , "from the cave of Geba." This, however, there is nothing to warrant.
