Geber in Naves Topical Bible -Name of two men, officers of Solomon 1Ki 4:13,19

Geber in Smiths Bible Dictionary (manly). 1. The son of Geber resided in the fortress of Ramoth- gilead, and had charge of Havoth-jair and the district of Argob. 1Ki 4:13 (B.C. 1013). 2. Geber the son of Uri had a district south of the former --the "land of Gilead." 1Ki 4:19

Geber in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ge'-ber (gebher, "man," "strong one"): (1) According to 1 Ki 4:13 the King James Version the father of one of the 12 officers who provided food for Solomon and his household (but here the Revised Version (British and American) "Ben-geber"). His district lay to the Northeast of Jordan. (2) Another, and the last in the list of Solomon's commissariat officers (1 Ki 4:19). His district was also East of the Jordan, but probably to the South of that named in connection with the official of 4:13 (the Revised Version (British and American) "Ben-geber"). According to the rendering of English Versions of the Bible, he is said to have been "the only officer that was in the land." Unless the text, which presents some difficulties, is corrupt, as some suppose, it probably means that this large region was assigned to one official because less able than the others to furnish the required supplies. Benjamin Reno Downer

Geber Scripture - 1 Kings 4:19 Geber the son of Uri [was] in the country of Gilead, [in] the country of Sihon king of the Amorites, and of Og king of Bashan; and [he was] the only officer which [was] in the land.

Having as his commissariat district the part of Gilead forming Sihon's and Og's kingdom, now Belka, the great pasture E. of Jordan. Translated not "he was the only officer in the land," for there were two others (1 Kings 4:13-14), but "and one (superior) officer (netsitb 'achad) who was in the land," namely, to superintend the three subordinate officers (compare Hebrew 2 Chronicles 8:10).
