Genesis 1:1–3

In the beginning God (Elohim) created [by forming from nothing] the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and void or a waste and emptiness, and darkness was upon the face of the deep [primeval ocean that covered the unformed earth]. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.

Genesis 1:1 in other translations

John 3:16

For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life.

John 3:16 in other translations

The Amplified Bible (AMP) is an English translation of the Bible produced jointly by Zondervan (subsidiary of News Corp) and The Lockman Foundation. The first edition was published in 1965. It is largely a revision of the American Standard Version of 1901, with reference made to various texts in the original languages. It is designed to "amplify" the text by using additional wording and a system of punctuation and other typographical features to bring out all shades of meaning present in the original texts.

The Amplified Bible was published in six stages:

  • Gospel of John (1954)
  • New Testament (1958)
  • Old Testament Volume Two (Job-Malachi) (1962)
  • Old Testament Volume One (Genesis-Esther) (1964)
  • Complete Bible (1965)
  • Expanded Edition (1987)

The Amplified Bible was revised in 2015, now known as the Amplified Holy Bible; more amplifications in the Old Testament were added, and refinements made to the New Testament amplifications.

The bulk of the work of producing the Amplified Bible was undertaken by Frances Siewert, employed by the Lockman Foundation.[1]

Explanation of arbitrary punctuation from the March 1985 printing[edit]

Parenthesis () and Dashes — —: signify additional phases of meaning included in the original word, phrase, or clause of the original language.

Titles of Deity: are set off with commas.

Brackets: contain clarifying words or comments not actually expressed in the immediate original text.

Italics: point out some familiar passages now recognized as not adequately supported by the original manuscripts. “And,” “or,” and other connectives in italics indicate they have been added for readability in English.

Capitals: are used in names and personal pronouns referring to Deity, but sparingly elsewhere.

References: are intended to cover any part of the preceding verse to which they apply.

Synonyms: are limited to what the text seems to warrant, both as to number and wording.[2]

Comparison example[edit]

Acts 16:31 is the example used in the Publisher's Foreword, illustrating some of the features of the Amplified Bible, in comparison with other translations:

Acts 16:31, King James Version: And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Acts 16:31, American Standard Version: And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus, and thou shalt be saved, thou and thy house.

Acts 16:31, Amplified Bible: And they answered, “Believe in the Lord Jesus [as your personal Savior and entrust yourself to Him] and you will be saved, you and your household [if they also believe].
