Isaiah 7:21-22. “And it shall come to pass in that day that a man shall nourish a young cow, and two sheep; And it shall come to pass for the abundance of milk that they shall give he shall eat butter: for butter and honey shall every one eat that is left in the land.”
There would be a very small remnant of people left in the land. It would be a hard-knock life after Assyria roared through, destroying everything it its path. There would be so few animals left that a single cow and a couple of sheep would suffice to feed many. The people would depend upon the milk, making thickened milk (curd) and depending upon wild honey for food. Crops would be pitiful, animals would be slaughtered or taken for food. The land would suffer as well as the people.
The after-effects of war are pretty awful.
