Lamentations 4:16 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Still more horrible was the misery of the women. In order to keep themselves from dying of hunger, mothers boiled their children for food to themselves; cf. Lamentations 2:20. By the predicate "compassionate," applied to hands, the contrast between this conduct and the nature, or the innate love, of mothers to their children, is made particularly prominent. בּרות is a noun equals בּרוּת, Psalm 69:22. On "the destruction of the daughter of my people," cf. Lamentations 2:11.
