The Amplified Bible

Now it is an extraordinary thing for one to give his life even for an upright man, though perhaps for a noble and lovable and generous benefactor someone might even dare to die.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

for, very rarely in behalf of one of those individuals who is legally exact and precise in his observance of the customs and rules of the society in which he lives will anyone die, yet perhaps in behalf of the one who is generous in heart, always doing good to others, a person would even dare to die.
Phillips’ Modern English

In human experience it is a rare thing for one man to give his life for another, even if the latter be a good man, though there have been a few who have had the courage to do it.
Williams’ Language of the People

Now a man will scarcely ever give his life for an upright person, though once in a while a man is brave enough to die for a generous friend. (Greek, a good man, but with qualities of unselfish generosity included.)
