    Consider too what size labor force would be needed to rebuild all these cities before crossing over. And when they crossed over their population was given.

     The men of Reuben, Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh crossed over, ready for battle, in front of the Israelites, as Moses had directed them.
    13 About forty thousand armed for battle crossed over before the LORD to the plains of Jericho for war.
    (Jos. 4:12-13 NIV)
