The Amplified Bible (AMP) is an English translation designed to enhance the understanding of the Bible by amplifying the meaning of words and phrases. The translation project was led by Frances Siewert, who sought to capture the nuances of the original languages.
The AMP uses a unique approach by incorporating parenthetical explanations and synonyms to convey the depth and richness of the original texts. It includes expanded definitions, alternate translations, and clarifications within the text, allowing readers to explore the various shades of meaning.
First published in 1965, the Amplified Bible has undergone revisions to maintain accuracy and linguistic relevance. It covers both the Old and New Testaments, providing a tool for in-depth study and reflection. The translation is recognized for its commitment to presenting the complexities of the biblical languages in a readable and accessible format.
The Amplified Bible is often used by individuals engaged in Bible study, teaching, and those who seek a more detailed exploration of the scriptural text. It serves as a valuable resource for gaining a deeper understanding of the Bible's original intent and meaning.
