  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Geba 
  the  hill,  (2  Sam.  5:25  [1  Chr.  14:16,  "Gibeon"];  2  Kings  23:8; 
  Neh.  11:31),  a  Levitical  city  of  Benjamin  (1  Kings  15:22;  1  Sam. 
  13:16;  14:5,  wrongly  Gibeah"  in  the  A.V.),  on  the  north  border 
  of  Judah  near  Gibeah  (Isa.  10:29;  Josh.  18:24,  28).  "From  Geba 
  to  Beersheba"  expressed  the  whole  extent  of  the  kingdom  of 
  Judah,  just  as  "from  Dan  to  Beersheba"  described  the  whole 
  length  of  Palestine  (2  Kings  23:8).  It  has  been  identified  with 
  Gaba  (Josh.  18:24;  Ezra  2:26;  Neh.  7:30),  now  Jeb'a,  about  5  1/2 
  miles  north  of  Jerusalem.
