SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:29 Cocimos, pues , mi hijo, y le comimos. El día siguiente yo le dije: Da acá tu hijo, y comámoslo. Mas ella ha escondido su hijo.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Kings 6:29 Verse 29. So we boiled my son] This is horrible; but for the sake of humanity we must allow that the children died through hunger, and then became food for their starved, desperate parents.
She hath hid her son.] He was already dead, says Jarchi; and she hid him, that she might eat him alone.
This very evil Moses had foretold should come upon them if they forsook God; see Deut. xxviii. 53. 57. The same evil came upon this wretched people when besieged by Nebuchadnezzar; see Ezek. v. 10. And also when Titus besieged Jerusalem; see Josephus, Deuteronomy Bell. Judaic. lib. vi., cap. 3, and my notes on Matt. xxiv. 19.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 29. So we boiled my son, and did eat him , etc.] Thus what was predicted, by way of threatening, began to be accomplished, ( 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.
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 __________________________________________________________________
