Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
The tongue of the infant cleaves To the roof of its mouth because of thirst; The little ones ask for bread, But no one breaks it for them.

King James Bible
The tongue of the sucking child cleaveth to the roof of his mouth for thirst: the young children ask bread, and no man breaketh it unto them.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
The nursing infant's tongue clings to the roof of his mouth from thirst. Little children beg for bread, but no one gives them any.
