Psalms 79:3  (King James Version)
Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalem; and there was none to bury them.

10 ; Matthew 23:35 ; Romans 8:36 ; Revelation 16:6 ; 17:6 18:24

and there, etc
Either there was no friend or relation left to bury them, or none was allowed to perform this last sad office. The despotism of eastern princes often proceeds to such a degree of extravagance as to fill the mind with astonishment and horror. In Morocco, no person dares to bury the body of a malefactor without an order from the emperor; and Windus, speaking of a man who was to have been sawn in two, informs us, that "his body must have remained to be eaten by the dogs, if the emperor had not pardoned him."
