Romans 5:1-5
(1) Therefore, having been justified [or, declared righteous] by faith, we have peace toward God through our Lord Jesus Christ, (2) through whom also we have the access [or, privilege to enter] by faith into this grace in which we have stood, and we boast [or, rejoice] in the hope [or, confident expectation] of the glory of God! (3) But not only [this], _but_ we also boast [or, take pride] in afflictions, knowing that affliction produces patient endurance, (4) and patient endurance proven character, and proven character hope [or, confident expectation], (5) and hope [or, confident expectation] does not disappoint [us], because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit having been given to us.

Romans 5:1-5 NWT
5 Therefore, now that we have been declared righteous as a result of faith, let us enjoy peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have gained our approach by faith into this undeserved kindness in which we now stand; and let us exult, based on hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only that, but let us exult while in tribulations, since we know that tribulation produces endurance; 4 endurance, in turn, an approved condition; the approved condition, in turn, hope, 5 and the hope does not lead to disappointment; because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the holy spirit, which was given us.

Romans 5:1-5 BBE
(1) For which reason, because we have righteousness through faith, let us be at peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ; (2) Through whom, in the same way, we have been able by faith to come to this grace in which we now are; and let us have joy in hope of the glory of God. (3) And not only so, but let us have joy in our troubles: in the knowledge that trouble gives us the power of waiting; (4) And waiting gives experience; and experience, hope: (5) And hope does not put to shame; because our hearts are full of the love of God through the Holy Spirit which is given to us.

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.
