pēp ( צפף , cāphaph ; the King James Version Isaiah 8:19; Isaiah 10:14 (the Revised Version (British and American) "chirp")): In Isaiah 10:14 , the word describes the sound made by a nestling bird; in Isaiah 8:19 , the changed (ventriloquistic?) voice of necromancers uttering sounds that purported to come from the feeble dead. The modern use of "peep" = "look" is found in Sirach 21:23, as the translation of παρακύπτω , parakúptō : "A foolish man peepeth in from the door of another man's house."
