Proverbs 18:10-12 NWT
10 The name of Jehovah is a strong tower. Into it the righteous runs and is given protection. 11 The valuable things of the rich are his strong town, and they are like a protective wall in his imagination. 12 Before a crash the heart of a man is lofty, and before glory there is humility.

Proverbs 18:10-12 Darby
(10) The name of Jehovah is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. (11) The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and as a high wall in his own imagination. (12) Before destruction the heart of man is haughty; and before honour goeth humility.

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.
