The Amplified Bible is a translation that, by using synonyms and definitions, both explains and expands the meaning of words in the text, by placing amplification in parentheses, brackets, and after key words. The Amplified Bible of 2015 includes more amplification in the Old Testament, and refined amplification in the New Testament.
