as in the contradiction of yesterday about who incited david to count the fighting men todays contradiction is also in conection with this one



2.In that count how many fighting men were found in Israel?
(a) Eight hundred thousand (2 Samuel 24:9)

2samuel chapter 24 verse 9 says
 9 Joab reported the number of the fighting men to the king: In Israel there were eight hundred thousand able-bodied men who could handle a sword, and in Judah five hundred thousand.

(b) One million, one hundred thousand (IChronicles 21:5)

1 chronicles chapter21 verse 5 says
5 Joab reported the number of the fighting men to David: In all Israel there were one million one hundred thousand men who could handle a sword, including four hundred and seventy thousand in Judah


hmmmm seems a contradiction or a counting problem but oh it was one man that counted "joab"i dont think he told king david in one minute
there were 8 hundred thousand and then turn around another minute and say i mistaked it was one million one hundred thousand.
