Lots of battles were fought in the Bible. Some were won primarily by a miraculous act of God, such as the fall of Jericho in the days of Joshua or the defeat of Sennacherib's Assyrian army in the days of Hezekiah. The non-miraculous victory with the most enemy casualties that I know of is the Battle of Mount Zemaraim, won by Rehoboam of Judah against the Kingdom of Israel. The Bible claims 500,000 casualties.
Which battle won primarily by a miraculous act of God, fought by either the tribes (Moses through Samuel), United Kingdom (Saul to Solomon) or the Kingdom of Judah (Rehoboam to the Exile)...
- claimed the most enemy casualties?
- was fought against the largest opposing army?
I am looking for battles prior to the Babylonian Exile, ca 585 BC.
The greatest victory I know of is the defeat of Sennacherib, with 185,000 enemy casualties:
32 “Therefore thus says the Lord concerning the king of Assyria: He shall not come into this city or shoot an arrow there, or come before it with a shield or cast up a siege mound against it. 33 By the way that he came, by the same he shall return, and he shall not come into this city, declares the Lord. 34 For I will defend this city to save it, for my own sake and for the sake of my servant David.” 35 And that night the angel of the Lord went out and struck down 185,000 in the camp of the Assyrians. And when people arose early in the morning, behold, these were all dead bodies. 36 Then Sennacherib king of Assyria departed and went home and lived at Nineveh. 37 And as he was worshiping in the house of Nisroch his god, Adrammelech and Sharezer, his sons, struck him down with the sword and escaped into the land of Ararat. And Esarhaddon his son reigned in his place. (2 Ki 19:32–37)
Is there a greater miraculous victory that I overlooked?
