Lamentations 4:8-10 Expanded Bible (EXB)

But now ·they [L their faces] are blacker than coal,
    and no one recognizes them in the streets.
Their skin ·hangs [or shrivels] on their bones;
    it is as dry as wood.

Those who were ·killed [L pierced] ·in the war [L by the sword] were better off
    than those ·killed [L pierced] by ·hunger [famine].
They ·starve in pain and die [drain/waste away],
    ·because there is no food from the field [L deprived of the produce of the field; Jer. 11:22; 14:12–18].

10 With their own hands ·kind [compassionate] women
    ·cook [boil] their own children.
They became food
    when ·my [L the daughter of my] people were ·destroyed [fractured; broken; Deut. 28:56–57].
