Exodus 12:37

Exodus 12:37: Then the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand men on foot, besides children.
Numbers 1:45-46: So all who were numbered of the children of Israel, by their fathers’ houses, from twenty years old and above, all who were able to go to war in Israel— all who were numbered were six hundred and three thousand five hundred and fifty.

1 Kings 20:15: Then he mustered the young leaders of the provinces, and there were two hundred and thirty-two; and after them he mustered all the people, all the children of Israelseven thousand.

Exodus and Numbers say that the Israelite population was about 600,000, but First Kings says that the Israelite population was only 7,000 later on.

A nation's population would not have dropped so drastically in the length of time it records.
