Parallel Strong's
Holman Christian Standard Bible
What can we say to my lord ? ” Judah replied. “ How can we plead? How can we justify ourselves? God has exposed your servants’ iniquity. We are now my lord’s slaves  — both we and the one in whose possession the cup was found.”

New American Standard Bible
So Judah said, "What can we say to my lord? What can we speak? And how can we justify ourselves? God has found out the iniquity of your servants; behold, we are my lord's slaves, both we and the one in whose possession the cup has been found."

King James Bible
And Judah said, What shall we say unto my lord? what shall we speak? or how shall we clear ourselves? God hath found out the iniquity of thy servants: behold, we [are] my lord's servants, both we, and [he] also with whom the cup is found.
Parallel Verses

American Standard Version
And Judah said, What shall we say unto my lord? what shall we speak? or how shall we clear ourselves? God hath found out the iniquity of thy servants: behold, we are my lord's bondmen, both we, and he also in whose hand the cup is found.

Young's Literal Translation
