where hebrew king threw 10000 people down, day 2 umm biyara

Once a Hebrew king threw down 10,000 Edomite POW down the cliff from these steps. The mountain is 1100 meters high.

I checked the place. Firstly, you can only break you legs if you jump down from here because the cliff doesn't reach all the way to the bottom. Secondly, it is impossible to take 10,000 unwilling victims up Umm Biyara if you see how steep and narrow some of the paths are. Thirdly, in ancient time, the Hebrew word for thousand could also meant families or tents. It's more likely the king only killed 10 families (40 people?).
