shalt be brought down [shaphel], and shalt speak [dabar]
out of the ground ['erets], and thy speech ['imrah] shall be low [shachach] out
of the dust [`aphar], and thy voice [qowl] shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit ['owb], out of the ground ['erets],
and thy speech ['imrah] shall whisper [tsaphaph] out of the dust [`aphar].
4 And you
will be brought low; from the earth you shall speak, and from the dust your
speech will be bowed down; your voice shall come from the ground like the voice
of a ghost, and from the dust your speech shall whisper. ESV
