I read a passage this morning that might fit your search for translations that clarify text for me without my knowledge of the original languages. I’m not sure if this is the type of thing you are looking for, but it is a verse I would not have understood otherwise.

Bible readers throughout church history have argued about whether the Trinity is meant here. I don’t think the question can be answered definitively until we know even as also we are known (1 Cor 13:12). But inserting one position into the text is helpful for readers who, like me as a young person, never stopped to ask, “Who’s the ‘us’?” Once again, the Amplified forces you to ask an important interpretive question by answering it. Even when the interpretive glosses are controversial, they’re still worth having for certain readers: John 3:16 – “For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.” I’m not saying that words can mean only one thing; words can indeed have various senses. I’m saying what respected evangelical linguist Moisés Silva says (quoting another scholar): “The best meaning is the least meaning.” Silva recommends that Bible interpreters (here he again quotes another scholar) define a word “in such fashion as to make it contribute least to the total message derivable from the passage where it is at home.” ( Biblical Words and Their Meaning, 153–154). Zephaniah / Haggai / Zechariah / Malachi / Matthew / Mark / Luke / John / Acts / Romans / Psalms / Corinthians / Galatians / Ephesians / Philippians / Colossians / Thessalonians / Timothy / Titus / Philemon / Hebrews / James / Peter / John / Jude / Revelation.Set up daily reminders to receive a new verse each day, fostering a deeper connection with scripture and its timeless teachings. Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be signs and tokens [of God’s provident care]. (Gen 1:14) Enjoy a smoother reading experience with the only Amplified® Bible in a single-column, paragraph format.

The Amplified® Bible is known to its readers for delivering enhanced understanding of the rich nuances and shades of meaning of the original Bible languages. For this kind of study, no working knowledge of Greek or Hebrew is required—just a desire to know more about what God says in his Word.

For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life. (John 3:16) With smooth scrolling, easy search functionality, and customizable settings, finding and studying specific verses has never been easier. They had an eye for metaphors that might need a little explanation. In this sense, the Amplified tends to combine the value of formal (literal) and functional (dynamic) Bible translations:

In 1998 I hadn’t taken any linguistics courses, any Greek, or any Hebrew. If I read this preface, I don’t recall it raising any red flags. But now, after years of studying and compulsively thinking about language—particularly Greek, Hebrew, and English, and their relationship in Bible translation—I’m afraid the red flags wave madly when I read the Amplified Bible’s explanation of itself. Every line shows linguistic misunderstandings, and my critical thinking skills won’t let me say it more nicely. I don’t think I ever stopped to ask myself in Genesis 1:14, “Signs and tokens of what?” The Amplified Bible forces me to ask that question by answering it: the sun, moon, and stars are signs and tokens of God’s providential care. And that looks to me like a good answer. Even if that answer is in no way hidden in the Hebrew, it’s a genuine Bible study help.

No matter where you are, delve into the sacred texts at your convenience. Someone in your Bible study group sitting around your living room should have the Amplified Bible up on his or her iPad. Just skip the preface. I suggest that you view the Amplified as an efficient study Bible, the fruit of deep dedication to the text of Scripture, an interesting oddity of American evangelicalism that puts one of the movement’s healthiest impulses on full display: the desire to understand Scripture. Related articles Take as an example the Greek word pisteuo, which the vast majority of versions render “believe.” That simple translation, however hardly does justice to the many meanings contained in the Greek pisteuo: “to adhere to, cleave to; to trust, to have faith in; to rely on, to depend on.” Consequently, the reader gains understanding through the use of amplification, as in John 11:25: “Jesus said to her, I am [Myself] the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on) Me, although he may die, yet he shall live.” The Amplified Bible can be a valuable study tool, as the different “alternate” renderings can give additional insight into the meaning of a text. The problem is the words the AMP gives alternate renderings for CAN mean those things, but do not mean ALL of those things. The fact that a word can have different meanings does not mean that every possible meaning is a valid rendering each time the word occurs. Also, it being based on the American Standard Version results in some of its wordings sounding archaic.

Bookmark and highlight: mark your favourite passages, bookmark important verses, and highlight meaningful sections. Add notes to verses and make a list of favourites. All of the examples I’ve just given are good things the Amplified does despite, not because of, the theory stated in its preface. Conclusion Traditional translation methods aren’t “concealing” meaning except at very subtle levels—places in which, for example, the number of a second-person pronoun simply can’t be expressed except through context (because you can be singular or plural in English). In particular, “the key words in the original text” don’t have “full meanings” that our modern translations are somehow obscuring. The word “conceal” vastly overstates the limitations of traditional Bible translations.For Further Study How to Choose a Translation for All Its Worth: A Guide to Understanding and Using Bible Versions by Gordon D. Fee & Mark L. Strauss I mentioned this request to an astute friend and diligent Bible student, a grandmother who works full time as a writer-editor. Super sharp. A day later I received this: The eyes of all wait for You [looking, watching, and expecting] and You give them their food in due season. (Ps 145:15)
