Psalm 79:2-4 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

They have left the corpses of your servants
    as food for the birds of the sky,
    the flesh of those devoted to you for the beasts of the earth.
They have poured out their blood like water
    all around Jerusalem,
    and no one is left to do the burying.
We have become the reproach of our neighbors,
    the scorn and derision of those around us.

Psalm 79:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

They have left the dead bodies of your servants
    as food for the birds of the sky,
    the flesh of your own people for the animals of the wild.
They have poured out blood like water
    all around Jerusalem,
    and there is no one to bury the dead.
We are objects of contempt to our neighbors,
    of scorn and derision to those around us.

Psalm 79:2-4 King James Version (KJV)

The dead bodies of thy servants have they given to be meat unto the fowls of the heaven, the flesh of thy saints unto the beasts of the earth.

Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalem; and there was none to bury them.

We are become a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and derision to them that are round about us.
