Lamentations 2:20 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

20 “Look, O Lord, and pay attention:
    to whom have you been so ruthless?
Must women eat their own offspring,[a]
    the very children they have borne?
Are priest and prophet to be slain
    in the sanctuary of the Lord?

Footnotes:

  1. 2:20 Must women eat their own offspring: extreme famine in a besieged city sometimes led to cannibalism; this becomes a stereotypical way of expressing the nearly unthinkable horrors of war; cf. Lam 4:10; Dt 28:53; 2 Kgs 6:28–29; Bar 2:3; Ez 5:10.
