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 was 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.

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) Updated Edition (1987) The bulk of the work of producing the Amplifed Bible was done by Frances Siewert, employed by the Lockman Foundation.
