According to eSword, a freeware Bible Searchware, the following
translations/versions have "the sinner".
LITV - Literal Translation of the Holy Bible
YLT - Young's Literal Translation
There are also some alternate renderings:
WNT - 1912 Weymouth New Testament - "sinner that I am."
CEV - Contemporary English Version - "I am such a sinner."
ISV - International Standard Version - "the sinner that I am!"
