Deuteronomy 28:56-57

28:56 Likewise, the most 1  tender and delicate of your women, who would never think of putting even the sole of her foot on the ground because of her daintiness, 2  will turn against her beloved husband, her sons and daughters, 28:57 and will secretly eat her afterbirth 3  and her newborn children 4  (since she has nothing else), 5  because of the severity of the siege by which your enemy will constrict you in your villages.

3 tn Heb includes “that which comes out from between her feet.”
