James 1:2-4 NWT
2 Consider it all joy, my brothers, when YOU meet with various trials, 3 knowing as YOU do that this tested quality of YOUR faith works out endurance. 4 But let endurance have its work complete, that YOU may be complete and sound in all respects, not lacking in anything.

James 1:2-4 CEV
(2) My friends, be glad, even if you have a lot of trouble. (3) You know that you learn to endure by having your faith tested. (4) But you must learn to endure everything, so that you will be completely mature and not lacking in anything.

James 1:2-4 BBE
(2) Let it be all joy to you, my brothers, when you undergo tests of every sort; (3) Because you have the knowledge that the testing of your faith gives you the power of going on in hope; (4) But let this power have its full effect, so that you may be made complete, needing nothing.

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.
