Job 6:27 is not a good verse to use here.

“you even cause to fall upon orphans, and ??? upon your neighbors.”

Now what was caused to fall upon orphans? The previous verse says scoldings and disheartening words.

What root does the ??? above come from? KRH to furnish? Or KRR to leap about? I personally choose KRR as it is more picturesque and fitting 
the active picture of the first half of the verse.

When reading an unpointed text, either root is possible.
