The Amplified Bible (AMP) is an English translation of the Bible produced jointly by The Zondervan Corporation 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 a system of punctuation and other typographical features to bring out all shades of meaning present in the original texts.

This is a very handy app and greatly appreciated. Some theologians think this version is not to be received at all, but I think there is a translation for everyone that they can relate to. And this is what is important. Personally I like to use several different ones at a time just to cross check them. I used to think this version was a bit clumsy until I found myself returning to it again and again for study and meditation. I like the features of this app as the print size is nice and big. And then there is the black on white or white on black font and background options. Overall this is very enjoyable to use. It is a nice addition to my leather bound copy which is about 35 years old. Blessings and thank you.
Great app, but ads in support of Donald Trump, really??
I like the simplicity and functionality of this app and I love the amplified Bible. However the only ad I noticed was thanking Donald Trump for his hard work... this says a lot, especially at a time like this. It says that you support someone who is purposely trying to polarize the nation’s top institutions, including the judicial system, along party lines to please his base (you). He is probably someone who you count on for a semblance of morality, yet he tries constantly to skirt the law, wrongly blames job loss on poor immigrants, and has cheated on multiple wives. As an active duty military officer, I ask you to stop following the evangelical bandwagon, do some research (beyond just listening to Fox News), stop believing a designed, skewed narrative of fear, and put your faith in Jesus and not someone who makes you feel like you’re in control by offering you an oversimplified narrative. Jesus hung with the overlooked, the racial minority, the rejected, and the downtrodden. The president is none of these, and in fact, only pays attention to these when it pleases his base (you), and certainly not when it involves people of color.
My thought on this translation
I have found with all the Bible apps this one is the easiest to maneuver. It has numerous translations for good references, my only caution is to aware of some of the translations: wording could not be what KJV is. That is my only concerns. We have to be wise in what translation we choose. I choose KJV because I know it is the closest to the original translation from the Hebrew writings. I do however read another translation if I need easier clarity of a verse but, I do make sure it has not taken out important words like the blood, Jesus name, the cross, or changes words to make them have different meanings. A few have concerned be but just be wise and ask the Holy Spirit for clarity. God bless! Jesus is Lord!!!
