The closest I could find is {Qom} "experience an earthquake or tremor" (TKD), "tremble" (Sonnet):

  Qombe'! nISbe' jevwI', 'ej not ruS baq. 
  That looks on tempests and is never shaken. 
  ["It does not tremble! The storm does not disrupt it,
    and it never terminates the bond."] (Sonnet 116)

For "shake" may I suggest *{DuDbe'} "not stir"?  <g>
