A question on the following--
1 Chronicles 21
5   And Joab gave the sum of the number of the people unto David. And all 
they of Israel were a thousand thousand and an hundred thousand men that drew 
sword: and Judah was four hundred threescore and ten thousand men that drew 
sword. 

Does the Hebrew text indicate that we should understand this as--

1.  All they of Israel were a thousand thousand and an hundred thousand men 
OF WHICH four hundred threescore and ten thousand men were from Judah.

or

2. All they of Israel were a thousand thousand and an hundred thousand men; 
IN ADDITION, there were four hundred threescore and ten thousand men in Judah 
(making the total one million five hundred threescore and ten thousand).
