The article is about the Biblical location. For the Naxi writing system, see Geba script.

Geba (Hebrew: גֶּבַע, Modern {{{2}}} Tiberian {{{3}}}; Greek: Γαβαα; Latin: Gabaa) - the hill, (2 Kings 23:8; Neh. 11:31), a Levitical city of Benjamin on the north border of Judah adjacent to Ramah in Benjamin north of Gibeah. (Isa. 10:29; Josh. 18:24, 28) It has been identified with Jeb'a, about 5 1/2 miles north of Jerusalem. During the wars in the time of Saul, Geba was held as a garrison by the Philistines (1Sa 13:3), but they were ejected by Jonathan.

During the reigns of Asa king of Judah and Baasha king of Israel, Geba was one of two cities that Asa built up from the stones Baasha meant for Ramah (1 Kings 15:22; 2 Chron 16:6).
