Romans 5:6-11 CEV
(6) Christ died for us at a time when we were helpless and sinful. (7) No one is really willing to die for an honest person, though someone might be willing to die for a truly good person. (8) But God showed how much he loved us by having Christ die for us, even though we were sinful. (9) But there is more! Now that God has accepted us because Christ sacrificed his life's blood, we will also be kept safe from God's anger. (10) Even when we were God's enemies, he made peace with us, because his Son died for us. Yet something even greater than friendship is ours. Now that we are at peace with God, we will be saved by his Son's life. (11) And in addition to everything else, we are happy because God sent our Lord Jesus Christ to make peace with us.

Romans 5:6-11 NWT
6 For, indeed, Christ, while we were yet weak, died for ungodly men at the appointed time. 7 For hardly will anyone die for a righteous [man]; indeed, for the good [man], perhaps, someone even dares to die. 8 But God recommends his own love to us in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more, therefore, since we have been declared righteous now by his blood, shall we be saved through him from wrath. 10 For if, when we were enemies, we became reconciled to God through the death of his Son, much more, now that we have become reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. 11 And not only that, but we are also exulting in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.

Romans 5:6-11 BBE
(6) For when we were still without strength, at the right time Christ gave his life for evil-doers. (7) Now it is hard for anyone to give his life even for an upright man, though it might be that for a good man someone would give his life. (8) But God has made clear his love to us, in that, when we were still sinners, Christ gave his life for us. (9) Much more, if we now have righteousness by his blood, will salvation from the wrath of God come to us through him. (10) For if, when we were haters of God, the death of his Son made us at peace with him, much more, now that we are his friends, will we have salvation through his life; (11) And not only so, but we have joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we are now at peace with God.

Romans 5:6-11 ALT
(6) For Christ, while we were still weak [or, helpless], at the right time, died on behalf of the impious [or, ungodly]. (7) For scarcely [or, only rarely] will anyone die on behalf of a righteous [person]; for perhaps someone even dares [or, might be prepared] to die on behalf of the good [person]. (8) But God demonstrates His own love to us, [in] that us still being sinners [or, while we were still sinners], Christ died on our behalf. (9) Much more then, having been justified [or, declared righteous] now by His blood, we will be saved from the wrath through Him. (10) For if, being enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we will be saved by His life. (11) But not only [this], _but_ we also boast [or, rejoice] in God, through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we now received the reconciliation.

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.
