SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:28 Y le dijo el rey: Â¿Qué tienes? Y ella respondió: Esta mujer me dijo: Da acá tu hijo, y comámoslo hoy, y mañana comeremos el mío.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 28. And the king said unto her, what aileth thee ? etc.] His passion subsiding, or pitying her as in distress, and supposing that there might be something particular and pressing in her case: and she answered , this woman said unto me ; who was now with her, and to whom she pointed: give thy son, that we may eat him today, and we will eat my son tomorrow ; and this was agreed to between them, that first one should be eaten, and then the other, and that they should feed upon one as long as it would last, and then on the other; for it is not to be limited precisely to a day and tomorrow.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 24-33 - Learn to value plenty, and to be thankful for it; see how contemptibl money is, when in time of famine it is so freely parted with for an thing that is eatable! The language of Jehoram to the woman may be the language of despair. See the word of God fulfilled; among the threatenings of God's judgments upon Israel for their sins, this wa one, that they should eat the flesh of their own children, De 28:53-57 The truth and the awful justice of God were displayed in this horribl transaction. Alas! what miseries sin has brought upon the world! But the foolishness of man perverts his way, and then his heart fret against the Lord. The king swears the death of Elisha. Wicked men wil blame any one as the cause of their troubles, rather than themselves and will not leave their sins. If rending the clothes, without a broke and contrite heart, would avail, if wearing sackcloth, without being renewed in the spirit of their mind, would serve, they would not stan out against the Lord. May the whole word of God increase in us reveren fear and holy hope, that we may be stedfast and immovable, alway abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that our labour is not in vain in the Lord __________________________________________________________________
