Once again you fail to simply read scripture. The passage in Kings takes place before the temple is built while the passage in Chronicles takes place many years later. (II Chronicles 9:25 is closer in time to I Kings 10:26 as is evident by the visit of the Queen of Sheba.) Moreover, there is a distinction in the two passages in that the II Chronicles 9:25 states he had 4,000 stalls for horses AND CHARIOTS. It appears that there were 10 men and 10 horses per chariot. (Compare II Sam 10:18 and I Chronicles 19:18 to see that the men of 700 chariots would be 7000 fighters.)

The first Gogol monument in Moscow, a Symbolist statue on Arbat Square , represented the sculptor Nikolay Andreyev 's idea of Gogol rather than the real man. [30] Unveiled in 1909, the statue received praise from Ilya Repin and from Leo Tolstoy as an outstanding projection of Gogol's tortured personality. Joseph Stalin did not like it, however, and the statue was replaced by a more orthodox Socialist Realism monument in 1952. It took enormous efforts to save Andreyev's original work from destruction; as of 2014 [update] it stands in front of the house where Gogol died. [31]
