Matthew 11:1-6 ALT
(1) And it happened, when Jesus finished giving instructions to His twelve disciples, He departed from there to be teaching and to be preaching in their cities. (2) But John having heard in the jail [about] the works of Christ, having sent two of his disciples, (3) said to Him, "Are You the coming One, or are we looking for a different [one]?" (4) And answering, Jesus said to them, "Having gone, report to John what you* are hearing and seeing: (5) blind [ones] receive sight and lame [ones] walk about, leprous [ones] [or, ones with a skin disease] are cleansed and deaf [ones] hear, dead [ones] are raised and the Gospel is proclaimed to poor [ones]. [cp. Isaiah 35:5,6; 61:1] (6) "And happy is [the one] who is not caused to stumble [fig., not offended] because of Me."

Matthew 11:1-6 CEV
(1) After Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he left and began teaching and preaching in the towns. (2) John was in prison when he heard what Christ was doing. So John sent some of his followers (3) to ask Jesus, "Are you the one we should be looking for? Or must we wait for someone else?" (4) Jesus answered, "Go and tell John what you have heard and seen. (5) The blind are now able to see, and the lame can walk. People with leprosy are being healed, and the deaf can hear. The dead are raised to life, and the poor are hearing the good news. (6) God will bless everyone who doesn't reject me because of what I do."

Matthew 11:1-6 BBE
(1) And it came about that when Jesus had come to the end of giving these orders to his twelve disciples, he went away from there, teaching and preaching in their towns. (2) Now when John had news in prison of the works of the Christ, he sent his disciples (3) To say to him, Are you he who is to come, or are we waiting for another? (4) And Jesus, answering, said to them, Go and give news to John of the things which you are seeing and hearing: (5) The blind see; those who were not able to, are walking; lepers are made clean; those who were without hearing, now have their ears open; the dead come to life again, and the poor have the good news given to them. (6) And a blessing will be on him who has no doubts about me.

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.
