Lamentations 4:8-10 World English Bible (WEB)
8 Their appearance is blacker than a coal; they are not known in the streets:
Their skin clings to their bones; it is withered, it has become like a stick.
9 Those who are killed with the sword are better than those who are killed with hunger;
For these pine away, stricken through, for want of the fruits of the field.
10 The hands of the pitiful women have boiled their own children;
They were their food in the destruction of the daughter of my people.
