(9) Even to prepare me timber in abundance.--Rather, And they shall prepare, or, let them prepare. (A use of the infinitive, to which the chronicler is partial: see 1Chronicles 5:1; 1Chronicles 9:25; 1Chronicles 13:4; 1Chronicles 15:2; 1Chronicles 22:5.) So Syriac, "Let them be bringing to me."

Shall be wonderful great.--See margin; and LXX., ????? ??? ???????, "great and glorious;" Syriac, "an astonishment" (temh?). . . .
