Rabshakeh, also Rab-shakeh and Rabsaces (Hebrew: רַבְשָׁקֵה, Modern {{{2}}} Tiberian {{{3}}}; Greek: Ραψακης; Latin: Rabsaces) This name meaning chief of the princes was given to the chief cup-bearer or the vizier of the Assyrian royal court.

The Bible mentions it for one of Sennacherib's messengers to Hezekiah. See the speech he delivered, in the Hebrew language, in the hearing of all the people, as he stood near the wall on the north side of the city (2 Kings 18:17-37 and Isaiah 36). He and the other envoys returned to their master and reported that Hezekiah and his people were obdurate, and would not submit.
