New International Version
Because of your wrath there is no health in my body; there is no soundness in my bones because of my sin.

My back is filled with searing pain; there is no health in my body.
because of your great wrath, for you have taken me up and thrown me aside.
From the sole of your foot to the top of your head there is no soundness-- only wounds and welts and open sores, not cleansed or bandaged or soothed with olive oil.
