Question: Why would the woman want to eat her son & eat the kngs son the next day? 2kings 6:27-30 Answer: Samaria was under siege, so the people were starving. The two ladies were so hungry they decided to eat their children, one the first day, the other the next. They didn't want to, but they were starving to death. Her complaint is that after they ate her child, the other lady hid her child so the child would live. -PJ
