Just a quick search turned up a reference to Ezekiel 7:15

gladius foris pestis et fames intrinsecus qui in agro est gladio morietur et qui in civitate pestilentia et fame devorabuntur

The sword is without, and the pestilence and the famine within: he that is in the field shall die with the sword: and he that is in the city, famine and pestilence shall devour him.

Not sure if that is what they were referencing, but it seems a good place to start...
