Ga'reb (Heb. Gareb', גָּרֵב, scabby; Sept. Γαρέβ and Γαρήβ), the name of a man and of a hill.

1. An Ithrite (q.v.), i.e., descendant of Jethro or Jether, and one of David's thirty heroes (2Sa 23:38; 1Ch 11:40). B.C. 1046. SEE DAVID.

2. A hill (גִּבעָה) near Jerusalem, apparently on the north-west, (Jer 31:39). SEE JERUSALEM. According to Dr. Barclay, it is "the ridge running from the north-west corner of the city in the direction of Wely Kamat" (City of the Great King, page 76). SEE GATH. He thinks it may have been so called because Gareb the Ithrite once owned it, or because it contained quarries for the seclusion of the lepers.
