The large counts of people found in the Bible are often prophetic for large intervals of time. This report looks at a time when the Northern Kingdom lost 500,000 men. The prophetic interval points at the early 400s when Rome was attacked.
Huge counts, typically census counts, are prophetic for large intervals in world history.
17and Abijah slew them with a great slaughter; so there fell slain of Israel 500,000 young men.
18Thus, the sons of Israel were defeated at that time and the sons of Judah prevailed, because they said, We rely on Yahvah, god of our fathers.
