1 Timothy 2:3-7 NWT
. . .This is fine and acceptable in the sight of our Savior, God, 4 whose will is that all sorts of men should be saved and come to an accurate knowledge of truth. 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, a man, Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself a corresponding ransom for all-[this is] what is to be witnessed to at its own particular times. 7 For the purpose of this witness I was appointed a preacher and an apostle-I am telling the truth, I am not lying-a teacher of nations in the matter of faith and truth.

1 Timothy 2:3-7 ALT
(3) For this [is] good and acceptable before God our Savior, (4) who desires all people [or, peoples] to be saved and to come to a full [or, true] knowledge of the truth. (5) For [there is] one God and one Mediator [between] God and people, a Person, Christ Jesus, (6) the One having given Himself [as] a ransom on behalf of all, the testimony in its own times, (7) in regard to which _I_ was put [or, appointed] [as] a preacher and apostle (I am telling [the] truth in Christ, I am not lying), [as] a teacher of Gentiles in faith and truth.

1 Timothy 2:3-7 BBE
(3) This is good and pleasing in the eyes of God our Saviour; (4) Whose desire is that all men may have salvation and come to the knowledge of what is true. (5) For there is one God and one peacemaker between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, (6) Who gave himself as an offering for all; witness of which was to be given at the right time; (7) And of this I became a preacher and an Apostle what I say is true, not false, and a teacher of the Gentiles in the true faith.

1 Timothy 2:3-7 CEV
(3) This kind of prayer is good, and it pleases God our Savior. (4) God wants everyone to be saved and to know the whole truth, which is, (5) There is only one God, and Christ Jesus is the only one who can bring us to God. Jesus was truly human, and he gave himself to rescue all of us. (6) God showed us this at the right time. (7) This is why God chose me to be a preacher and an apostle of the good news. I am telling the truth. I am not lying. God sent me to teach the Gentiles about faith and truth.

You will note the reference windows often include more than one translation of the Bible. The reason is to strive to gain the best possible understanding of the original Hebrew and Greek. Since we don't speak those languages, we rely on those who have come before and made the effort to translate those texts into English for us. Considering several translations gives the benefit of the understanding of several translation committees or individuals.
