Luke 10:20-22 BBE
(20) Do not be glad, however, because you have power over spirits, but because your names are recorded in heaven. (21) In that same hour he was full of joy in the Holy Spirit and said, I give praise to you, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have kept these things secret from the wise and the men of learning, and have made them clear to little children: for so, O Father, it was pleasing in your eyes. (22) All things have been given to me by my Father: and no one has knowledge of the Son, but only the Father: and of the Father, but only the Son, and he to whom the Son will make it clear.

Luke 10:20-22 NWT
. . .Nevertheless, do not rejoice over this, that the spirits are made subject to you, but rejoice because your names have been inscribed in the heavens." 21 In that very hour he became overjoyed in the holy spirit and said: "I publicly praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have carefully hidden these things from wise and intellectual ones, and have revealed them to babes. Yes, O Father, because to do thus came to be the way approved by you. 22 All things have been delivered to me by my Father, and who the Son is no one knows but the Father; and who the Father is, no one [knows] but the Son, and he to whom the Son is willing to reveal him."

Luke 10:20-22 ALT
(20) "Nevertheless, stop rejoicing in this, that the spirits are subjected to you*, but be rejoicing that your* names were written in the heavens." (21) In that hour Jesus was very glad in the Spirit [or, in His spirit] and said, "I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and of the earth, that You hid these [things] from wise and intelligent [people] and revealed them to young children. Yes, Father, because in this way it became well-pleasing before You." (22) And turning to the disciples, He said, "All [things] were handed over to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son and to whom[ever] the Son shall be desiring to reveal [Him]."

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.
