Are you sure )XD is the subject of YPLW, or of YQYM? I read the verse as follows, For if they fall (plural subject referring back to the previous verse), the one will cause his associate to rise,
a reading further strengthened by the fact that fall in the second half of the verse is singular with a singular subject.
