Question
I am confused about Jeremiah 19:9 -- " I will make them eat the flesh of their sons and daughters, and they will eat one another’s flesh because their enemies will press the siege so hard against them to destroy them."

It seems clear to me that cannibalism would be immoral for anyone to do, whether the person was Jewish or Gentile.

I did not sleep. When I study Torah, I did not feel hungry or thirsty. I am sure if I study Torah, I can live without food and water for several days.
