John 7:19b-24 ALT
. . .Why are you* seeking to kill Me?" (20) The crowd answered and said, "You have a demon! Who seeks to kill You?" (21) Jesus answered and said to them, "One work I did, and you* all marvel [or, are amazed]! (22) "For this reason Moses has given to you* circumcision-not that it is from Moses, _but_ from the fathers-and on a Sabbath you* circumcise a man. (23) "If a man receives circumcision on a Sabbath so that the Law of Moses is not broken, [why] are you* very angry with Me that I made a man entirely well on a Sabbath? (24) "Stop judging according to appearance, _but_ be judging the righteous judgment."

John 7:19b-24 CEV
. . .So why do you want to kill me? (20) The crowd replied, "You're crazy! What makes you think someone wants to kill you?" (21) Jesus answered: I worked one miracle, and it amazed you. (22) Moses commanded you to circumcise your sons. But it wasn't really Moses who gave you this command. It was your ancestors, and even on the Sabbath you circumcise your sons (23) in order to obey the Law of Moses. Why are you angry with me for making someone completely well on the Sabbath? (24) Don't judge by appearances. Judge by what is right.

John 7:19b-24 NWT
. . .Why are you seeking to kill me?" 20 The crowd answered: "You have a demon. Who is seeking to kill you?" 21 In answer Jesus said to them: "One deed I performed, and you are all wondering. 22 For this reason Moses has given you the circumcision-not that it is from Moses, but that it is from the forefathers-and you circumcise a man on a sabbath. 23 If a man receives circumcision on a sabbath in order that the law of Moses may not be broken, are you violently angry at me because I made a man completely sound in health on a sabbath? 24 Stop judging from the outward appearance, but judge with righteous judgment."

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.
