And the Syrians fled before Israel; and David slew the men of seven hundred chariots of the Syrians, and forty thousand horsemen, and struck Shobach the captain of their army, who died there.

Hundred. Paralipomenon, thousand, allowing ten men for each chariot. (Du Hamel; Menochius) The men is omitted in both texts. See chap. viii. 4. (Haydock) Horsemen. Paralipomenon reads, footmen, supplying what is here omitted, (Salien) so that 87,000 Syrians perished, unless there be a mistake of the transcribers. (Calmet) Smote, though not perhaps with his own hand, as he slew so many thousands by means of his army. (Menochius)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
