2 Kings 6:33

33And while he was still speaking with them, the messenger came down to him and said, “This trouble is from the  Lord! a  Why should I wait for the  Lord any longer?”

2 Kings 7:4

4If we say, ‘Let us enter the city,’ the famine is in the city, and we shall die there. And if we sit here, we die also. So now come, let us go over to the camp of the Syrians. If they spare our lives we shall live, and if they kill us we shall but die.”

Jeremiah 14:18

18 b  If I go out into the field,
behold, those pierced by the sword!
c  And if I enter the city,
behold, the diseases of famine!
d  For both prophet and priest ply their trade through the land
and have no knowledge.’”

Lamentations 4:9

9 Happier were the victims of the sword
than the victims of hunger,
who wasted away, pierced
by lack of the fruits of the field.
