מכך  מוך

The two verbs מכך (makak) and מוך (muk) are obviously related and neither occurs very much in the Bible. They both mean to be low or humiliated:


מכך

The verb מכך (makak) occurs three times: Psalm 106:43 (sinking down in iniquity), Ecclesiastes 10:18 (sagging rafters due to indolence) and Job 24:24 (brought down to the netherworld of death).


מוך

The verb מוך (muk) is used to denote impoverished Israelites and occurs twice: Leviticus 25:47 and 27:8.
