Philippians 2:14-16 ALT
(14) Be doing all things without complaints and arguments, (15) so that you* shall become blameless and innocent children of God, unblemished in [the] midst of a crooked and having been perverted generation, among whom you* shine like stars in the universe, (16) holding firmly to [or, offering] the word of life, as my right to boast in [the] day of Christ, that I did not run [fig., exert myself] in vain, nor did I labor in vain.

Philippians 2:14-16 BBE
(14) Do all things without protests and arguments; (15) So that you may be holy and gentle, children of God without sin in a twisted and foolish generation, among whom you are seen as lights in the world, (16) Offering the word of life; so that I may have glory in you in the day of Christ, because my running was not for nothing and my work was not without effect.

Philippians 2:14-16 NWT
. . .Keep doing all things free from murmurings and arguments, 15 that you may come to be blameless and innocent, children of God without a blemish in among a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you are shining as illuminators in the world, 16 keeping a tight grip on the word of life, that I may have cause for exultation in Christ's day, that I did not run in vain or work hard in vain.

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.
