Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
"You have shriveled me up, It has become a witness; And my leanness rises up against me, It testifies to my face.

King James Bible
And thou hast filled me with wrinkles, which is a witness against me: and my leanness rising up in me beareth witness to my face.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
You have shriveled me up--it has become a witness; My frailty rises up against me and testifies to my face.
