The parallel account of the same battle between David and the Syrians in 1 Chronicles 19:18 says that "David slew of the Syrians seven thousand men which fought in chariots." The most likely explanation for this apparent discrepancy is a copyist's error. The Hebrew characters for "700" and "7000" are very easy to interchange.
