Which was always reckoned a very grievous calamity, have no other burial than in the bowels of beasts and birds; and was the case of many of the Jews in the Antiochian persecution, ( Psalms 79:2 ) ; and in a treatise of theirs F8, which relates their many afflictions and sufferings in their present captivity, speaking of a persecution of them in Spain, in the Jewish year 5172, it is reported, how that those that fled to avoid punishment were killed in the fields, where their carcasses lying unburied became a prey to beasts:

and no man shall fray [them] away;
the fowls and the beasts; none of their friends being left to do it, and their enemies would not show so much respect to them, and care of them.
