John 15:11-15 ALT
(11) "These things I have spoken to you* so that My joy shall abide in you*, and your* joy shall be made full. (12) "This is My commandment, that you* shall be loving one another just as I loved you*. (13) "Greater love has no one than this, that someone lays down his life on behalf of his friends. (14) "You* are My friends, if you* are doing whatever _I_ command you*. (15) "No longer do I call you* slaves, because the slave does not know what his lord does. But I have called you* friends because all which I heard from My Father, I made known to you*.

John 15:11-15 NWT
11 "These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you and your joy may be made full. 12 This is my commandment, that you love one another just as I have loved you. 13 No one has love greater than this, that someone should surrender his soul in behalf of his friends. 14 you are my friends if you do what I am commanding you. 15 I no longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master does. But I have called you friends, because all the things I have heard from my Father I have made known to you."

John 15:11-15 ASV
(11) These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full. (12) This is my commandment, that ye love one another, even as I have loved you. (13) Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (14) Ye are my friends, if ye do the things which I command you. (15) No longer do I call you servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I heard from my Father, I have made known unto you.

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.
