Where do you get that ketib version of the verse? It is different from the
Westminster Leningrad Codex which, as I understand, is the basis for all
scholarly versions on the market, including the latest Biblica Hebreica from
Stuttgart as well as all the online versions that I know of.

Now you have to explain your variant reading, then get back to explaining
how you justify that it is a piel.
