Japanese dictionaries say it's derived from the archaic word "やば" and don't say anything about 危ぶむ. https://dictionary.goo.ne.jp/word/%E3%82%84%E3%81%B0%E3%81%84/#jn-222425 やば・い の解説 ［形］《形容動詞「やば」の形容詞化》 bay4bay at 2023-11-22 20:35:30 UTC I know https://gogen-yurai.jp/yabai/ among others has a hypothesis that these words have the same origin, but I don't think that's necessarily concensus.
