קָו & קַו with suff. קַוָּם (for קָוֶו, from the root קָוָה, which see)

(1)  a rope, a cord (Arab. قُوَّةُ), 1 Kings 7:23 specially

(a) a measuring cord, Ezekiel 47:3. נָטָה קָו עַל to stretch out a measuring cord to measure any thing, Job 38:5; Isaiah 44:13 especially something to be built, Job loc. cit.; Zechariah 1:16 to be destroyed, Lamentations 2:8; 2 Kings 21:13 comp. Isaiah 34:11. Hence metaph. rule, law, Isaiah 28:10. קַו לָקָו קַו לָקָו “(they add) law to law, law to law;” comp. under the word צָו.

(b) the string of a harp; hence sound, Psalms 19:5. LXX. φθόγγος. Symm. ἦχος.

(2) strength, might; Arab. قُوَّةُ, see the root No. 2. Isaiah 18:2, גוֹי קַו־קָו “a very strong nation.” The repetition increases the force.
