Romans 9:6-8
6 However, it is not as though the word of God had failed. For not all who [spring] from Israel are really "Israel." 7 Neither because they are Abraham's seed are they all children, but: "What will be called 'your seed' will be through Isaac." 8 That is, the children in the flesh are not really the children of God, but the children by the promise are counted as the seed.

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.
