From these arguments rises the hypothesis

U.S. and Canadian English
I am doing English edits on text and one phrase is tripping me up.

The author wants to say, "From these arguments rise the hypothesis:" (it's a transition phrase from a paragraph with arguments to a statement of a hypothesis. This is in an academic text.)

It's the inversion that is catching me, as well as the use of "rise" in this context.

Shouldn't it be:
From these arguments the hypothesis rises:
From these arguments arises the hypothesis:
The hypothesis rises/arises from these arguments:
the hypothesis immediately follows.

Thank you!
