Amplification is characteristic of the Ancient Near Eastern way of speaking and writing.   It is a form of exaggeration used to frame a story to emphasize how really great the person or the event really was.  Samson is an example.  He killed many with the jawbone of an ass, but not a thousand. 
Scripture  Judges  15:15
