My palate turned dry as a shard

Like water I spilled out,
   all my limbs fell apart.
My heart was like wax,
   melting within my chest.
My palate turned dry as a shard
   and my tongue was annealed to my jaw,
        and to death's dust did You thrust me.

Psalm 22:14-15
Robert Alter's translation
