Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
Better are those slain with the sword Than those slain with hunger; For they pine away, being stricken For lack of the fruits of the field.

King James Bible
They that be slain with the sword are better than they that be slain with hunger: for these pine away, stricken through for want of the fruits of the field.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
Those slain by the sword are better off than those slain by hunger, who waste away, pierced with pain because the fields lack produce.
