פּוּק to move to and fro, Isaiah 28:7. Not found in the cognate languages, but it is of the same stock as wanken, with a sibilant prefixed fchwanken (ant. wagen); with a diminut. vacillo, wackeln. Comp. פּוּךְ.
Hiphil, id., Jeremiah 10:4, וְלֹא יָפִיק “and it moveth not.” So it is commonly taken. But perhaps it ought rather to be taken causatively, “he causes it not to move.”
