Suph (סַוּŠ, a sea-weed, SEE FLAG, Jon. 2, 6) is the characteristic epithet of the Red Sea' (q.v.), which abounds in sedge (Ex 10:19, and often). In one passage (De 1:1) it has been supposed by some to designate a place, but no locality of that name has been discovered, and most interpreters (with the Sept. and Vulg.) understand it there to stand for the Red Sea (by the omission of יִם, sea). So in Nu 21:14, סוּפָה, suphah (Sept. Ζωόβ; Vulg. Mare Rubrum), some think a place (perhaps the same) to be indicated, but others with better reason render, the word as an appellative, storm, i.e. violence (as in Job 21:18, and elsewhere).
