Hi, b-hebrew listers.

Regarding this verse

There was a small city with few men in it and a great king  came to it,
surrounded  it, and constructed large siegeworks  against it.

עיר קטנה ואנשים בה מעט ובא אליה מלך גדוך וסבב אתה ובנה עליה מצודים גדלים
I'm wondering whether it is logical that one builds up large -LARGE-
siegeworks agains a small -SMALL- city.

Can this be a clear sign that the scene has been neither real nor historical
but imagined by the author-writer to show, as a whole, that men very often
are not grateful?
