"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 Amplified Bible
Mrs. Siewert (1881-1967) devoted her life to studying the Bible in the Hebrew and Greek languages. She began work on a Bible translation that would expand, amplify, the text with all the richness of the Hebrew and Greek languages. The Lockman Foundation caught on to her vision of a translation that would add all the color of these two languages to the Bible text and came alongside to assist her. One chapter yet remained to bring the vision into reality.
Zondervan Publishing House seized the opportunity to participate in this vision they believed would be blessed by God and change lives. They published the Amplified New Testament in 1958 and the full Amplified Bible in 1965.
