2 Samuel 1:6

Context
1:6 The young man who was telling him this 1  said, “I just happened to be on Mount Gilboa and came across Saul leaning on his spear for support. The chariots and leaders of the horsemen were in hot pursuit of him.

2 Samuel 8:4

Context
8:4 David seized from him 1,700 charioteers 2  and 20,000 infantrymen. David cut the hamstrings of all but a hundred of the chariot horses. 3 

2 Samuel 10:18

Context
10:18 The Arameans fled before Israel. David killed 700 Aramean charioteers and 40,000 foot soldiers. 4  He also struck down Shobach, the general in command of the army, who died there.

1 tc The Syriac Peshitta and one ms of the LXX lack the words “who was telling him this” of the MT.

2 tc The LXX has “one thousand chariots and seven thousand charioteers,” a reading adopted in the text of the NIV. See the parallel text in 1 Chr 18:4.

3 tn Heb “and David cut the hamstrings of all the chariot horses, and he left from them a hundred chariot horses.”

4 tn Heb “horsemen” (so KJV, NASB, NCV, NRSV, NLT) but the Lucianic recension of the LXX reads “foot soldiers,” as does the parallel text in 1 Chr 19:18. Cf. NAB, NIV.
