Acts 4:24-30 ALT (24) And having heard, with one mind they lifted up a voice to God and said, "Master, You [are] the God, the One having 'made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all the [things] in them,' [Exod 20:11] (25) who by [the] mouth of David Your servant, said, 'Why did [the] Gentiles rage, and [the] people think about empty [fig., plot futile] [things]? (26) 'The kings of the earth stood up [or, took a stand], and the rulers were gathered on the same against the LORD and against His Christ.' [Psalm 2:1] (27) "For truly [there] were gathered together against Your Holy Servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with [the] Gentiles and [the] people of Israel, (28) to do as many [things] as Your hand and Your plan predestined to occur. (29) "And now, Lord, take notice of their threats, and grant to Your slaves to be speaking Your word with all confidence, (30) by the stretching out of Your hand, for healing and signs and wonders to take place through the name of Your Holy Servant Jesus."

Acts 4:24-30 GNB (24) When the believers heard it, they all joined together in prayer to God: "Master and Creator of heaven, earth, and sea, and all that is in them! [Exod 20:11] (25) By means of the Holy Spirit you spoke through our ancestor David, your servant, when he said, 'Why were the Gentiles furious; why did people make their useless plots? (26) The kings of the earth prepared themselves, and the rulers met together against the LORD and his messiah.' [Psalm 2:1] (27) For indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together in this city with the Gentiles and the people of Israel against Jesus, your holy Servant, whom you made Messiah. (28) They gathered to do everything that you by your power and will had already decided would happen. (29) And now, Lord, take notice of the threats they have made, and allow us, your servants, to speak your message with all boldness. (30) Reach out your hand to heal, and grant that wonders and miracles may be performed through the name of your holy Servant Jesus."

Acts 4:24-30 LITV (24) And hearing they with one passion lifted voice to God and said, Master, You are "the God who made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and all things in them," [Exod 20:11] (25) who through the mouth of Your servant David said, "Why did the nations rage, and the peoples meditate foolish things? (26) The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were assembled on the same day against the LORD, yea, against His Christ." [Psalm 2:1, 2] (27) For truly both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the nations and the peoples of Israel, were assembled against Your holy child Jesus, whom You anointed, (28) to do whatever Your hand and Your counsel before-determined to be done. (29) And now, Lord, look upon their threatenings and give to Your slaves to speak Your Word with all boldness, (30) in the extending of Your hand for healing and miraculous signs and wonders to happen through the name of Your holy child Jesus.

Acts 4:24-30 NWT 24 Upon hearing this they with one accord raised their voices to God and said: "Soverign Lord, you are the One who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all the things in them, [Exod 20:11] 25 and who through holy spirit said by the mouth of our forefather David, your servant, 'Why did nations become tumultuous and peoples meditate upon empty things? 26 The kings of the earth took their stand and the rulers massed together as one against Jehovah and against his anointed one.' [Psalm 2:1] 27 Even so, both Herod and Pontius Pilate with [men of] nations and with peoples of Israel were in actuality gathered together in this city against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, 28 in order to do what things your hand and counsel had foreordained to occur. 29 And now, Jehovah, give attention to their threats, and grant your slaves to keep speaking your word with all boldness, 30 while you stretch out your hand for healing and while signs and portents occur through the name of your holy servant Jesus."

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.
