Geba belonged to the tribe of Benjamin (), and was assigned to the priests (; ). The Philistines were smitten from Geba unto Gazer by David (); Asa rebuilt Geba and Mizpeh with the stones of Ramah (; ). 'From Geba (in the north) to Beersheba' (in the south) (), expressed the whole extent of the separate kingdom of Judah, just as 'from Dan to Beersheba' expressed the whole length of Palestine. It would seem, from the manner in which Geba (Gaba) and Ramah are coupled in , that they were very near each other; but the site of Geba is now unknown.
