Hebrews 2:14-16 NWT
14 Therefore, since the "young children" are sharers of blood and flesh, he also similarly partook of the same things, that through his death he might bring to nothing the one having the means to cause death, that is, the Devil; 15 and [that] he might emancipate all those who for fear of death were subject to slavery all through their lives. 16 For he is really not assisting angels at all, but he is assisting Abraham's seed.

Hebrews 2:14-16 LITV
(14) Since, then, the children have partaken of flesh and blood, in like manner He Himself also shared the same things, that through death He might cause to cease the one having the power of death, that is, the devil; (15) and might set these free, as many as by fear of death were subject to slavery through all the lifetime to live. (16) For indeed He does not take hold of angels, "but He takes hold of" "the seed of Abraham." Isa. 41:8, 9
Isaiah 41:8-9 LITV
(8) But you Israel are My servant, Jacob whom I have elected; the seed of My friend Abraham; (9) whom I have made strong from the ends of the earth, and called you from its sides; and I said to you, You are My servant. I elected you, and have not rejected you.

Hebrews 2:14-16 CEV
(14) We are people of flesh and blood. That is why Jesus became one of us. He died to destroy the devil, who had power over death. (15) But he also died to rescue all of us who live each day in fear of dying. (16) Jesus clearly did not come to help angels, but he did come to help Abraham's descendants.

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.
