I read many different translations of the Bible and have consistently favored The Amplified Bible because it is translated from the original greek and hebrew languages. It enables me to understand the Bible much better, as it uses accurate descriptions of measurements, coinage, cultural and social mores, historically accurate time tables, maps, and references that clarify and “bring to life” scripture in a way that no other translation does. Reading this Bible for the past 30 years has allowed me to really come to know and trust The Lord and His Word.
Do you need encouragement today? Pray and ask God to speak to you with His Word. Let His Word come to life in you today! Read & Meditate and Write down His Word. Let His Word be a lamp to your feet-and alight to your path-as it clearly reflects God’s Omnipotence and Omnipresence. God cares and His unconditional love. It’s time for us to take God at His Word! I enjoy studying and applying the Word of God to my life. I am anchored with confidence in the Word of God. If God be for you He is more than the whole world against you. I enjoying reading the different versions that you offer while focusing on and applying God’s Living Word daily. The Holy Spirit is our comforter. Be encouraged and let God strengthen you, while guiding you, and giving you peace in the midst of the storm. Jesus, is the way, the truth, and the life. With God all things are possible!
I found this version of the Bible, which allows me to hear God’s word, on an old cell phone that I had not used for a long time. There is a Bible verse that ends with something like “. .. and faith comes by hearing the word of God. The Amplified Translation has been my favorite for a long time. I also like the feature that you can choose the voice in which to hear. I have a good friend who is of Irish descent so I let her hear that voice. She thought that it was “ pretty good.”
I got the Amplified Bible version and we all know it is a longer read than KJ. I would like to be able to bookmark how far I am in my reading. For example, if a I read 4 days worth and get ahead, I see no way of bookmarking and determining how far ahead I am. You have to go back to reading plan, scroll the arrow to determine how how far you have read. Then you have to remember what book and verse you left at. It would be nice to see exactly how far you have read at the reading point.
I installed this app for one reason: because it has an option to hear the Amplified Bible read for you. However I found that although many choices of different male and female voices with either British or American accents can be selected, irrefutably, and distractingly not a single one of them even is a real person – they are all of an archaic artificial computer generated type that because of that fact unavoidably grates on my nerves, and is very, very disruptive making the capability completely useless to me. Apple’s SIRI in comparison is far more real sounding than any one of those artificial ones you have on here to chose from. Please take the time, and resources to create audio of even just one living, breathing American male, and/or one living, breathing American female even to choose from instead of all those nerve grating primitive artificial voices. To me they all have the same highly distractive “fingers being scraped down a chalkboard effect on my nerves, and I’m sure I’m not alone in that regard!
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!!!
There are many versions and interpretations have been in serious controversy and opinion and war over this throughout the beginning of time all versions of Scripture is spiritual leave the words and interpretation of man/woman alone develop a spiritual relationship with God is going to teach you what you need to know what you need to do and that's it leave religion alone titles of he/she interpretations translations?? Flesh and blood only develop your relationship with God and him only not with man or his opinions or interpretations and that's all I have to say about that. Forrest Gump
I am grateful to have this version in a portable form. Sometimes when someone makes a comment or I see something on TV or hear something on the radio, it reminds me of a passage of Scripture and I want to read it with all of the nuances or possible interpretations at once. I don’t want to have to write it down...go home...pull out my Amplified Bible...look up the passage and them try and remember what it was I was wondering about an hour ago. It’s convenient. Thank you developers for creating it.
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.
We have become a society dependent on our phones for everything from buying groceries to having a cheeseburger delivered to our front door. Now, we have an app that connects us with God’s word. Easy to use and the view can be customized for those of us who just can’t see that good anymore. As we continue to be consumed by the world around us, use your phone to open God’s word!!Thanks for a great app!!
