19当那些日子,怀孕的和乳养孩子的有祸了!
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
19 Verse 19. And wo unto them (alas! for them) that are with

child, &c.] For such persons are not in a condition to make their

escape; neither can they bear the miseries of the siege. Josephus

says the houses were full of women and children that perished by

the famine; and that the mothers snatched the food even out of

their own children's mouths. See WAR, b. v. c. 10. But he

relates a more horrid story than this, of one Mary, the daughter

of Eliezar, illustrious for her family and riches, who, being

stripped and plundered of all her goods and provisions by the

soldiers, in hunger, rage, and despair, killed and boiled her own

sucking child, and had eaten one half of him before it was

discovered. This shocking story is told, WAR, b. vi. c. 3, with

several circumstances of aggravation.
