2 Timothy 3:1-5 NWT
3 But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up [with pride], lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power; and from these turn away.

2 Timothy 3:1-5 ALT
(1) But know [or, realize] this, that in [the] last days perilous times will come. (2) For people will be lovers of themselves [or, self-centered], lovers of money, arrogant boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, ungodly, (3) without natural affection [or, heartless], unwilling to be at peace with others [or, unforgiving], slanderous, lacking in self control, fierce, not loving what is good, (4) traitors, headstrong [or, reckless], having been swollen up with pride, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, (5) having an outward form of godliness but having denied its power. And be keeping away from these [people].

2 Timothy 3:1-5 CEV
(1) You can be certain that in the last days there will be some very hard times. (2) People will love only themselves and money. They will be proud, stuck-up, rude, and disobedient to their parents. They will also be ungrateful, godless, (3) heartless, and hateful. Their words will be cruel, and they will have no self-control or pity. These people will hate everything that is good. (4) They will be sneaky, reckless, and puffed up with pride. Instead of loving God, they will love pleasure. (5) Even though they will make a show of being religious, their religion won't be real. Don't have anything to do with such people.

2 Timothy 3:1-5 LITV
(1) But know this, that in the last days grievous times will be upon us. (2) For men will be lovers of themselves, money-lovers, braggarts, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, (3) without natural feeling, unyielding, slanderers, without self-control, savage, haters of good, (4) betrayers, reckless, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, (5) having a form of godliness, but denying the power of it; even turn away from these.

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.
