Shout AMEN!Amen ~ PrayingPraying

Member Comments:
Got to thinking about 185,000 men. As of 2005,

Little Rock, AR 184,564
Grand Rapids, MI 193,780
Yonkers, NY 196,425
Winston-Salem, NC 193,755
Providence, RI 176,862
Knoxville, TN 180,130
Amarillo, TX 183,021
Salt Lake City, UT 178,097
Newport News, VA 179,899
Richmond, VA 193,777
Tacoma, WA 195,898

Hard to get your mind around the possibility of every human in one of those cities dying in one night. But anyone who has ever been involved in a large military operation - or even a large gathering of Boy Scouts - will tell you, hygiene for your troops is a major challenge. But I'd never considered cholera.

Interesting take on that passage!

Comments: A scholalrly comparison of Sennacherib's account with the scriptures can be found here:http://www.tyndalehouse.com/tynbul/library/tynbull_1985_36_03_millard_sennacheribsattackhezekiah.pdf
It's what Sennacherib doesn't say that is of interest.
