(29) And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons.--The harrowing scene here described is also depicted in Deuteronomy 28:53-57. This prediction actually came to pass at the siege of Samaria by the Syrians (2Kings 6:28-29), and at the siege of Jerusalem by the Chaldaeans, which Jeremiah thus bewails, "the hands of pitiful women have sodden their own children, they were their meat in the destruction of the daughter of my people" (Lamentations 4:10; comp. also Jeremiah 19:9; Ezekiel 5:10; Zechariah 11:9, &c.). This also happened at the siege of Jerusalem by Titus. A woman named Mary killed her infant child and boiled it during the height of the famine, and after she had eaten part of it, the soldiers found the rest in her house. . . .
