They are necessarily construct. So I think. "Gulat" is clearly a construct 
(see the absolute in Zec 4:3). And "Hebel" is construct too. Look at the A. 
section in  www.oham.net/out/N-t/N-t081.html

Furthermore remark that the noun which comes some words after "kad" has 
article (ha-galgal)...
That is why I think that "ha-kad" would be better. And I do not intend, by 
no means, to propose a changing of the text: the text must remain as it is.
But cientific discussion is always enlightening, so I feel.
