But if, despite this, you disobey me . . . you shall eat the flesh of your sons, and you shall eat the flesh of your daughters. (This is an example of gender equality in the bible.)
But this is what the Lord says . . . I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh; they will be drunk on their own blood.
Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joyfulness and gladness of heart . . . you shall eat the offspring of your own body, the flesh of your sons and daughters, whom the Lord your God has given you. . . . The man who is the most tender and delicately bred among you will grudge food . . . so that he will not give to any of them any of the flesh of his children whom he is eating. . . . The most tender and delicately bred woman among you, who would not venture to set the sole of her foot upon the ground because she is so delicate and tender, will grudge to the husband of her bosom, to her son and to her daughter, her afterbirth that comes out from between her feet and her children whom she bears, because she will eat them secretly, for want of all things, in the siege and in the distress with which your enemy shall distress you in your towns.
