Without sacrificing accuracy, the Amplified Bible uses synonyms and definitions to explain and expand the meaning of words in the text by placing amplification in parentheses, brackets, and after keywords. As a result English readers can clearly and completely grasp the meaning as it was understood by the readers of the original languages. Additionally, amplifications may provide further theological, historical, and other details for a better understanding of the text.
