GEBER ( 1 Kings 4:19 ). One of Solomon’s twelve commissariat officers, whose district lay to the E. of Jordan. At the end of 1 Kings 4:19 comes a sentence referred by AV [Note: Authorized Version.] and RV [Note: Revised Version.] to this Geber, and rendered ‘and he was the only officer which was in the land.’ But it is possible that the text should be emended so as to read ‘and one officer was over all the officers who were in the land,’ the reference being, not to Geber, but to Azariah, son of Nathan, mentioned in v. 6 as ‘over the officers.’
