* and toward.
The Roman armies at length besieged, sacked, and utterly
desolated Jerusalem: and during this seige, the famine was so
extreme, that even rich and delicate persons, both men and
women, ate their own children, and concealed the horrible
repast, lest others should tear it from them! "Women snatched
the food out of the very mouths of their husbands, and sons of
their fathers, and (what is most miserable) mothers of their
infants." "In every house, if there appeared any semblance of
food, a battle ensued, and the dearest friends and relations
fought with one another; snatching away the miserable
provisions of life." "A woman distinguished by birth and
wealth, after she had been plundered by the tyrants (or
soldiers) of all her possessions, boiling her own sucking
child, ate half of him, and concealing the other half,
reserved it for another time!"
