Lamentations 4:8-10 World English Bible (WEB)
8 Their appearance is blacker than a coal.
They are not known in the streets.
Their skin clings to their bones.
It is withered.
It has become like a stick.
9 Those who are killed with the sword are better than those who are killed with hunger;
For these pine away, stricken through,
for lack of the fruits of the field.
10 The hands of the pitiful women have boiled their own children.
They were their food in the destruction of the daughter of my people.
