Fausset's Bible Dictionary
("insolence".) A poetical name for Egypt (Isaiah 51:9). In Isaiah 30:7 De Dieu translated "I called her Arrogance (Rahab) that sitteth still." She who boasted of the help she would give, when put to the test, sat still (Isaiah 36:6). Psalms 87:4-5; Psalms 89:10, "Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain." Egypt is put foremost, as first of the great world powers that opposed God. She was reduced to corpse-like helplessness By God's stroke at the Red Sea, and at the slaying of the firstborn previously. (compare Psalms 74:13-14). Rahab occurs in the Hebrew, Job 9:13; Job 26:12.
