The Amplified Bible (AMP)

The Amplified Bible (AMP) is an English translation of the Bible jointly produced by Zondervan and The Lockman Foundation. The first edition as a complete volume was published in 1965. "Amplifications" are words or phrases intended to bring out the original text's meaning more fully but are distinguished from the translation by a unique system of brackets, parentheses, and italics. The translation is one of formal equivalence (word-for-word). Frances Siewert (1881–1967) was active in Christian education and the widow of a Presbyterian minister who died in 1940. With continuing support from the Lockman Foundation and Zondervan, she devoted herself to a similar edition of the Old Testament, relying heavily on the 1952 Revised Standard Version. Her two Old Testament volumes were published in 1962 and 1964. The Lockman Foundation then employed several scholars to revise the entire work for a one-volume edition published in 1965. In 1987, an expanded edition was published with additional amplifications; that version is now called the Classic Edition (AMPC). In 2015, the Amplified Bible was updated again for readability and clarity, with refreshed English and improved amplification.
