רַהַב m.

(1)  fierceness, insolence, pride. Job 9:13, עֹזְרֵי רַהַב “proud helpers;” used figuratively of the sea, Job 26:12.

(2) [Rahab], a poetical name of Egypt (probably of Egyptian origin, but accommodated to the Hebrew language; however, no one has yet shewn a probable etymology in the Coptic language; see Jablonskii Opuscc. ed. te Water, i. 228), Isaiah 51:9; Psalms 87:4, 89:11. Isaiah 30:7, allusion is made to the Hebrew etymology in these words, רַהַב הֵם שֶׁבֶת “insolence, (i.e. the insolent) they sit still,” i.e. boasting and grandiloquent, they are altogether inactive; no doubt a proverbial expression.
