      Thanks, Daniel.

      In the case of Zechariah 1:2, 1:14-15, and 8:2-3, the term that applies is "cognate accusative," as someone on the group mentioned.

      You're right that the infinitve absolute is often used with its finite verbal cognate, but Zechariah uses cognate nouns instead of verbs. Similar syntactic idea, different parts of speech to fill the slots.

      I appreciate your help.

      Sincerely,

      Chris Lovelace
