1 Chronicles 11:11 says that this man mentioned in the list of the mighty men (called Jashobeam in 1 Chronicles) slew three hundred men instead of eight hundred. The correct number is believed to be eight hundred, thus warranting Jashobeam's position as "chief among the captains." Abishai, in the second trio of mighty men, had slain three hundred. The number in 1 Chronicles 11:11 probably represents a copyist's error, but it is also possible that he slew eight hundred once and three hundred on another occasion.
