So we boiled my son, and did eat him
Thus what was predicted, by way of threatening, began to be accomplished, ( Deuteronomy 28:53 ) , (See Gill on Deuteronomy 28:53), and of which there were other instances of a like kind at the siege of Jerusalem, both by Nebuchadnezzar and Vespasian:
and I said unto her on the next day;
after her child had been wholly ate up:
give thy son, that we may eat him;
according to agreement:
and she hath hid her son;
either to save him alive, or to eat him herself alone.
