Behold, O LORD, and consider to whom thou hast done this. Shall the women eat their fruit, and children of a span long? shall the priest and the prophet be slain in the sanctuary of the Lord?

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

2:20 women eat their fruit. Among other things which Jeremiah might have considered inconceivable in the people of God, the thought of starving parents eating their own children surely would have headed the list, yet God had led him to predict it (Jeremiah 19:9), and it had come to pass. See also Lamentations 4:10.
