September 15, II Kings 6:24-33

Much of the Old Testament is history and most of the stories are not flattering to Isral or humanity in general.  This is a hard story, the famine is so bad that the people are eating any animal.  A donkey is an unclean animal yet even the head is selling for a premium.  Some texts read dove's dung, I have different commentaries that agree it was originally mistranslated and should say seed.  Pidgeon or bird seed.  People were eating that too.  And now the gruesome part, Moses prophecied this in Deuteronomy 28, that if Israel turned from God they would eventually be besieged and eat their own young. What a sad state to be in. But the history is important to study lest we repeat these things.
