2 Corinthians 11:3-7 CEV
(3) But now I fear that you will be tricked, just as Eve was tricked by that lying snake. I am afraid that you might stop thinking about Christ in an honest and sincere way. (4) We told you about Jesus, and you received the Holy Spirit and accepted our message. But you let some people tell you about another Jesus. Now you are ready to receive another spirit and accept a different message. (5) I think I am as good as any of those super apostles. (6) I may not speak as well as they do, but I know as much. And this has already been made perfectly clear to you. (7) Was it wrong for me to lower myself and honor you by preaching God's message free of charge?

2 Corinthians 11:3-7 ALT
(3) But I am afraid, lest perhaps, as the serpent deceived Eve in his craftiness, so your* minds shall be corrupted from the sincerity [or, single-hearted devotion], the [one] in [or, to] Christ. (4) For if indeed the one coming [to you*] preaches another Jesus whom we did not preach, or you* receive a different Spirit which you* did not receive, or a different gospel which you did not accept, you* may well put up [with it]! (5) For I consider [myself] to have fallen short in nothing [compared] to those "super-apostles." (6) But even if [I am] unskilled in word [or, speech], yet not in knowledge, _but_ in every [way] we have been made known to you* in all [things]. (7) Or did I commit sin [by] humbling myself so that _you*_ should be exalted, because I freely proclaimed the Gospel of God to you*?

2 Corinthians 11:3-7 BBE
(3) But I have a fear, that in some way, as Eve was tricked by the deceit of the snake, your minds may be turned away from their simple and holy love for Christ. (4) For if anyone comes preaching another Jesus from the one whose preachers we are, or if you have got a different spirit, or a different sort of good news from those which came to you, how well you put up with these things. (5) For in my opinion, I am in no way less than the most important of the Apostles. (6) But though I am rough in my way of talking, I am not so in knowledge, as we have made clear to all by our acts among you. (7) Or did I do wrong in making myself low so that you might be lifted up, because I gave you the good news of God without reward?

2 Corinthians 11:3-7 LITV
(3) But I fear lest by any means, as the serpent deceived Eve in his craftiness, so your thoughts should be corrupted from the purity which is due to Christ. (4) For if, indeed, the one coming proclaims another Jesus, whom we have not proclaimed, or if you receive another spirit which you have not received, or another gospel which you never accepted, you might well endure these. (5) For I judge myself to have come behind the highest apostles in nothing. (6) But even if I am unskilled in speech, yet not in knowledge. But in every way I have been clearly revealed to you in all things. (7) Or did I commit sin, humbling myself that you might be exalted, because I preached the gospel of God to you without charge?

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.
