King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
7 Her Nazarites were purer than snow, they were whiter than milk, they were more ruddy in body than rubies, their polishing was of sapphire: 7 Their princes were brighter than snow and whiter than milk, their bodies more ruddy than rubies, their appearance like sapphires.
8 Their visage is blacker than a coal; they are not known in the streets: their skin cleaveth to their bones; it is withered , it is become like a stick. 8 But now they are blacker than soot; they are not recognized in the streets. Their skin has shriveled on their bones; it has become as dry as a stick.
