(3) They will do these things to you because they have not had knowledge of the Father or of me. (4) I have said these things to you so that when the time comes, what I have said may come to your mind. I did not say them to you at the first, because then I was still with you.

(4) But I have said these things to you, that when their hour comes you may remember that I told them to you. "I did not say these things to you from the beginning, because I was with you.

(2) They shall excomunitate you: yea the time shall come, that who so euer kylleth you, wyll thynke that he doth God seruice. (3) And such thynges wyll they do vnto you, because they haue not knowen the Father, neither yet me.

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.
