2 Samuel 10:18 Parallel
Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Seven hundred chariots - More probable than the "seven thousand" of 1 Chronicles 19:18. The frequent errors in numbers arise from the practice of expressing numerals by letters, with one or more dots or dashes to indicate hundreds, thousands, etc.

Thus may persons who appear to set death and danger at defiance in the hour
