    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 5:10

    The fathers shall eat the sons - Though we have not this fact so particularly stated in history, yet we cannot doubt of it, considering the extremities to which they were reduced during the siege. The same is referred to by Jeremiah, Lamentations 4:10. Even the women, who were remarkable for kindness and humanity, boiled their own children, and ate them during the siege.

    Will I scatter into all the winds - Disperse you, by captivity, among all the nations of the earth.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 5:10

    5:10 Scatter - This was verified when they were fetched away, who were left at the departure of the besiegers, and when the very small remnant with Johanan fled into Egypt.
