Version Information

Publisher: Zondervan

The Amplified Bible Classic (AMP) is an English translation of the Bible that offers a unique approach to understanding the Scriptures. First published in 1965, it aims to "amplify" the text by using a system of brackets and parentheses to provide additional meanings and clarifications.

The translation was conceived to assist in the understanding of the Bible's rich nuances and layers of meaning. It provides insights into the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic texts to enhance comprehension and interpretation.

The Amplified Bible Classic is known for its detailed approach to translation, with an emphasis on explaining and illustrating the meanings of words and phrases within their biblical context.

This translation is particularly appreciated by those who study the Bible in-depth and seek a more precise understanding of the original languages. It includes both the Old and New Testaments.

The AMP has been influential in providing deeper insights into the biblical text, especially for those without knowledge of the original languages. It is widely used for study, teaching, and personal reflection.

The translation team aimed to combine the benefits of word-for-word and thought-for-thought translation philosophies to achieve both accuracy and clarity.

The Amplified Bible Classic's distinctive approach has made it a valuable resource for deeper biblical study and understanding across different Christian denominations.
