Bible Contradiction Answered Part 2: Horsemen vs Foot Soldiers

While the skeptics claim the Bible contradicts itself, Christians must believe that the Bible is internally consistent.
After all, if God can maintain order of this physical universe through some laws of physics, certainly God can also maintain order of His written word.

Another apparent contradiction is found here:

Then the Syrians fled before Israel; and David killed seven hundred charioteers and forty thousand horsemen of the Syrians, and struck Shobach the commander of their army, who died there.
2 Sam 10:18

Then the Syrians fled before Israel; and David killed seven thousand charioteers and forty thousand foot soldiers of the Syrians, and killed Shophach the commander of the army.
1 Chronicles 19:18

This is a record of war between king David and the Syrians.
2 Sam mentions 700 charioteers and 40000 horsemen whereas 1 Chronicles 19 mentions 7000 charioteers and 40000 foot soldiers.

In Part 1, we have already proposed a reconciliation between 700 and 7000 charioteers.
Basically, both books might have cited different version of military record as it could have been a long drawn battle.

Here we will attempt to reconcile the next apparent contradiction:
Was it 40000 horsemen or was it 40000 foot soldiers?

We need to remember that horsemen started their training as foot soldiers.
After some time, they then received training to fight using horses.
Also, we need to consider the terrain as it determined the strategy.

Imagine the following scenario.

David knew facing 40000 horsemen head on would have resulted in great casualty among his army.
Hence, he could have come up with this strategy: his army feigned loss and retreated from the battlefield to the surrounding thick forest.

The horsemen pursued.
They got off their horses at the border of the forest since horses were difficult to manuever inside the forests.
By then, 40000 horsemen became 40000 foot soldiers as they fought David’s army inside the forest.
David’s army then cut down 40000 foot soldiers with less casualty.

Furthermore, this strategy is plausible as the war took place at Helam (2 Sam 10:17), east of Jordan and west of Euphrate.
Hence, due to abundance of water, we can expect thriving vegetation there.

The Syrian army started with 40000 horsemen. In the end, they died as 40000 foot soldiers.
There is no contradiction.
We can trust God to preserve His written word.
