בקול חלש ובוכה

The sentence in question is: ”הַזָּקֵן פָּנַ אֵלַי, וּבְקוֹל חַלָּשׁ וּבוֹכֶה בִּקֵּשׁ נְדָבָה“

Is the בּוֹכֶה here a present tense verb (לִבְכּוֹת) being employed as an adjective, i.e., something akin to "a weak and weepy voice"?

Thank you.

    Yes, the present tense is also the -ing adjective (e.g. crying) and the -er noun (e.g. crier).
