(Hebrews 10:36-39 NWT)
. . .For you have need of endurance, in order that, after you have done the will of God, you may receive the [fulfillment of the] promise. 37 For yet "a very little while," and "he who is coming will arrive and will not delay." 38 "But my righteous one will live by reason of faith," and, "if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him." 39 Now we are not the sort that shrink back to destruction, but the sort that have faith to the preserving alive of the soul.

(Hebrews 10:36-39 ALT)
(36) For you* have need of patient endurance, so that having done the will of God, you* shall receive the promise. (37) "For yet [in] a very little while, the One coming will come and will not delay. (38) "But the [one] righteous by faith will live [or, the righteous will live by faith]; and if he draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him." [Hab 2:3,4] (39) But _we_ are not of [the ones] shrinking back to destruction, _but_ of [the ones having] faith to [the] preserving of [the] soul.

Hebrews 10:36-39 GW
(36) You need endurance so that after you have done what God wants you to do, you can receive what he has promised. (37) "Yet, the one who is coming will come soon. He will not delay. (38) The person who has God's approval will live by faith. But if he turns back, I will not be pleased with him." (39) We don't belong with those who turn back and are destroyed. Instead, we belong with those who have faith and are saved.

Hab. 2:4; Zeph. 1:6; Mal. 1:10 (39) But we are not of those withdrawing to destruction, but of faith, to the preservation of the soul.

(Hebrews 10:36-39 DRB)
(36) For patience is necessary for you: that, doing the will of God, you may receive the promise. (37) For yet a little and a very little while, and he that is to come will come and will not delay. (38) But my just man liveth by faith: but if he withdraw himself, he shall not please my soul. (39) But we are not the children of withdrawing unto perdition, but of faith to the saving of the soul.

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.
