Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

89:10 Rahab. This is not a reference to the Jericho woman of Joshua’s time, but to Satan, the old “dragon” (see Isaiah 51:9). The two names are slightly different in Hebrew spelling, although pronounced and transliterated the same in English. The word used here means “proud” and is so translated in Job 9:13 and 26:12. In fact, the name of “Pride” can appropriately be assigned to Satan, for he is the very father of pride, presuming to war against his Creator! In a great day to come, he will indeed be “broken in pieces” and consigned forever to the lake of fire.
