And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

26:29 eat the flesh. The unthinkable crime of eating their own children (who had, presumably, died of starvation themselves) was actually committed in at least two recorded instances–the siege of Jerusalem by the Babylonian armies (Lamentations 2:20; 4:10), and the earlier siege of Samaria by the Assyrians (II Kings 6:28).
