New International Version
Leaning back against Jesus, he asked him, "Lord, who is it?"
King James Bible
He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?
Darby Bible Translation
But he, leaning on the breast of Jesus, says to him, Lord, who is it?
World English Bible
He, leaning back, as he was, on Jesus' breast, asked him, "Lord, who is it?"
Young's Literal Translation
and that one having leant back on the breast of Jesus, respondeth to him, 'Sir, who is it?'
