I would consider {moqtaH} something that approximates the meaning, I think, 
but some canon would be nice to avoid all the guessing.

According to KGT, these occur in the slang expression section and mean 
"perilous/treacherous". Further it specifically says /experience/ the tremor. 
By that it seems clear whatever is {Qom}ing is not doing the trembling, it is 
sensing something else trembling.

And further to an earlier comment of mine, I would say if your heart {joq}s, 
you die.
To my interpretation, this (for you americans) is clearly a {joq}:
And this is the beat/rhythm:

So until we learn otherwise, I would not be able to use {Qom} or {joq} for 
these meanings.
