Perhaps it could be {<Do'val> 'oH pongwIj'e' 'e' vIwIv}. Or
{<Do'val> jIpong'egh 'e' vIwIv}.

Using {pong} as a verb might not be such a good idea for
Beginners, since not even the HotShots of the list understand its
double-object nature.

     *    *    *
But double objects are less objectionable (;-) NPI) when one of
the objects is embedded in the prefix.  So I think your second

     {<Do'val> jIpong'egh 'e' vIwIv}.

would be acceptable.
