Publisher's Summary

“Break Through the Language Barrier, Expand Your Understanding”

The Amplified Bible is a Literal Equivalent translation that, by using synonyms and definitions, both explains and expands the meaning of words in the text. This unique system of translation allows the reader to more completely and clearly grasp the meaning as it was understood in the original Hebrew and Greek languages.

For example, the Greek word pisteuo, which the vast majority of versions render as “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.”

Chapter Locations

I like listening to this version of the Bible. It does a great job expounding on the underlying meaning of the original language. However, I found the lack of reference to where books and chapters were very frustrating. So I created the following list for my reference. Hopefully some of you find this helpful. Old Testament Part 1 Genesis 1-50 2-51 Exodus 1-40 52-91 Part 2 Leviticus 1-27 92-118 Numbers 1-36 119-154 Deuteronomy 1-34 155-188 Part 3 Joshua 1-24 189-212 Judges 1-21 213-233 Ruth 1-4 234-237 1 Samuel 1-31 238-268 Part 4 2 Samuel 1-24 269-292 1 Kings 1-22 293-314 2 Kings 1-25 315-339 Part 5 1 Chronicles 1-29 340-368 2 Chronicles 1-36 369-404 Ezra 1-10 405-414 Nehemiah 1-13 415-427 Esther 1-9 428-436 Part 6 Esther 10 437 Job 1-42 438-479 Part 7 Psalms 1-99 480-578 Part 8 Psalms 100-150 579-629 Proverbs 1-31 630-660 Ecclesiastes 1-12 661-672 Part 9 Song of Solomon 1-8 673-680 Isaiah 1-66 681-746 Part 10 Jeremiah 1-52 747-798 Lamentations 1-5 799-803 Part 11 Ezekiel 1-48 804-851 Daniel 1-12 852-863 Hosea 1-14 864-877 Joel 1-3 878-880 Amos 1-9 881-889 Obadiah 1 890 Jonah 1-4 891-894 Micah 1-7 895-901 Part 12 Nahum 1-3 902-904 Habakkuk 1-3 905-907 Zephaniah 1-3 908-910 Haggai 1-2 911-912 Zechariah 1-14 913-926 Malachi 1-4 927-930 New Testament Part 13 Matthew 1-28 931-958 Mark 1-16 959-974 Luke 1-24 975-998 John 1-21 999-1019 Part 14 Acts 1-28 1020-1047 Romans 1-16 1048-1063 1 Corinthians 1-16 1064-1079 2 Corinthians 1-13 1080-1092 Galatians 1-6 1093-1098 Ephesians 1-6 1099-1104 Philippians 1-4 1105-1108 Colossians 1-4 1109-1112 Part 15 1 Thessalonians 1-5 1113-1117 2 Thessalonians 1-3 1118-1120 1 Timothy 1-6 1121-1126 2 Timothy 1-4 1127-1130 Titus 1-3 1131-1133 Philemon 1 1134 Hebrews 1-13 1135-1147 James 1-5 1148-1152 1 Peter 1-5 1153-1157 2 Peter 1-3 1158-1160 1 John 1-5 1161-1165 2 John 1 1166 3 John 1 1167 Jude 1 1168 Revelation 1-22 1169-1190 Cheers!

Beautiful and most meaningful

The Amplified version is the best version for grasping the meaning of Scripture. It expounds on the meaning of the translation of the Hebrew and Greek.

No Chapter Headings - Can be frustrating

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

You cannot navigate to a Chapter or Verse in this bible, you have to guess in which section it might be. This can be very frustrating.

CHAPTERS

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Bible book names are not listed so you can choose where to play. Am using Alexa to listen so needed to know how many chapters are in the entire BIBLE! Once you find the divisions, it is great to listen to this version. Anyone else have a better way to know where the various books begin and end?

Was Amplified Bible: Complete Old & New Testament worth the listening time?

Always! You learn better when you use the extra sensory feature of sound as well as sight.

A few strange interpretations here!

This is a Bible for use by a mature Christian, certainly not recommended for a new Christian like you would think. Sometimes the "amplifications" are so wrong I just wanted to close this and never open it again. I believe any true student of the Bible will find many errors. I cannot recommend this book.

Why no book titles?

Very disturbing that it's only listed by chapters and not the books of the Bible. It's very confusing and doesn't make sense. Other than that it's great

Upgrade, to stop the guessing of chapter versus etc.........

I enjoyed that there is a audio version I'm frustrated that with guesting part what chapter versus etc. To me that needs a total upgrade period. I would have given higher Mark if I didn't have to guess.

doesn't work

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I bought this bible 6/16/17 and i can't download to get it to work all it tells me is it buffing,,,and this can go one for 2hrs and more...i have bad luck getting audible....

What was most disappointing about PFL’s story?

I haven't been able to listen to it

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Steven B. Stevens?

don't have a clue...still can't access it to listen to it

Any additional comments?

the download doesn't work for me...so i don't have a clue, exception to get my money back and just buy a bible and read it...

No chapter headings

It's too bad that there are no headings in the written chapters section. It'd be easier to find your location when searching for a particular verse

Disappointed

This is not the most accessible translation of the Bible. You kind of feel like you are listening to a thesaurus of ancient times rather than one of the most important books of human history. I couldn't get on with the narrator either, he read too quickly and too mechanically for me to gain anything. So, as I said, I'm just disappointed.

The WORD amplified. A great Bible translation.

Really helps as you have the full meaning of the words rather than the limited English translations.
