First Kings 5:16

This website has been moved to:

1 Kings 5:16: besides three thousand three hundred from the chiefs of Solomon’s deputies, who supervised the people who labored in the work.

2 Chronicles 2:2: Solomon selected seventy thousand men to bear burdens, eighty thousand to quarry stone in the mountains, and three thousand six hundred to oversee them.

First Kings says that Solomon had 3,300 supervisors, but Second Chronicles says that Solomon had 3,600 supervisors.

This is most likely just the result of scribal copying errors.
