Eating Children?


The author of Deuteronomy 28:53 writes that “Then you shall eat the offspring of your own body, the flesh of your sons and of your daughters whom the LORD your God has given you, during the siege and the distress by which your enemy will oppress you.”

The author seems to be warning Israel what will happen if they continue in their sin. This described cannibalism will be the end result of their sin, as fulfilled during the siege of Samaria in 2 Kings 6:28-29. In short, the Deuteronomy passage is a general prediction of events that will happen in the future should Israel keep going along the path they did.
