Chris and others,
In addition to what Kelton Graham noted, Mention should also be made
here of Hans Wildberger's argument (Isaiah 1-12, pp. 385, 387, 405),
following Albrecht Alt, that the dittography also masks the fact that
there is an additional fifth throne name at the beginning of v. 6 (EVV
7), on the order of "Great in his Kingdom" or "Great in His Rule." I
find the suggestion attractive.

If you look at Second Temple period mss., such as some of the DSS, you
see that what we call the "final" mem was often used in the middle of
word as well. Basically, the two forms were interchangable. In this one
place, the MT preserves that ancient scribal tradition.
