שׁקע shq` "sink" in Amos 9:5 paired with עלה "rise". Am 8:8 though a closely parallel verse is less clear. The kethib (text as written) has ונשקה venishqah presumably a niphal from שׁקה shqh meaning something like "be given a drink". The qere (scribal correction) reads ונשקעה venishqe'ah suggesting an otherwise unknown niphal of שׁקע shq' ("be lowered"?). With most translators it seems best to read ושׁקעה weshaq`ah as in 9:5 "sinks". As the kethib does also.
