Proverbs 1:10-16 BBE
(10) My son, if sinners would take you out of the right way, do not go with them. (11) If they say, Come with us; let us make designs against the good, waiting secretly for the upright, without cause; (12) Let us overcome them living, like the underworld, and in their strength, as those who go down to death; (13) Goods of great price will be ours, our houses will be full of wealth; (14) Take your chance with us, and we will all have one money-bag: (15) My son, do not go with them; keep your feet from their ways: (16) For their feet are running after evil, and they are quick to take a man's life.

Proverbs 1:10-16 NWT
10 My son, if sinners try to seduce you, do not consent. 11 If they keep saying: "Do go with us. Do let us lie in ambush for blood. Do let us lie in concealment for the innocent men without any cause. 12 Let us swallow them down alive just like Sheol, even whole, like those going down into a pit. 13 Let us find all sorts of precious valuables. Let us fill our houses with spoil. 14 Your lot you ought to cast in among us. Let there come to be just one bag belonging to all of us"- 15 my son, do not go in the way with them. Hold back your foot from their roadway. 16 For their feet are those that run to sheer badness, and they keep hastening to shed blood.

Proverbs 1:10-16 LITV
(10) My son, if sinners lure you, do not be willing. (11) If they say, Walk with us, let us lie in wait for blood, let us secretly lurk for the innocent without cause, (12) let us swallow them up alive as Sheol, and whole, as those who go down into the Pit, (13) we shall find all precious goods, we shall fill our houses with plunder, (14) cast in your lot among us, one purse shall be to all of us. (15) My son, do not walk in the way with them! Hold back your foot from their path; (16) for their feet run to evil and they haste to shed blood.

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.
