Easton's Bible Dictionary

Geber:

a valiant man, (1Ki 4:19), one of Solomon's purveyors, having jurisdiction over a part of Gilead, comprising all the kingdom of Sihon and part of the kingdom of Og (Deu 2; 31).

Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary

Geber:

manly, strong

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Geber:

ge'-ber (gebher, "man," "strong one"):

(1) According to 1Ki 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 (1Ki 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.

Written by Benjamin Reno Downer

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Geber:

(manly).

(1.) The son of Geber resided in the fortress of Ramoth‐gilead, and had charge of Havoth‐jair and the district of Argob (1 Kings 4:13). (B.C. 1013)

(2.) Geber the son of Uri had a district south of the former-the "land of Gilead." (1 Kings 4:19).
