The short version of this Word from God… Get wisdom! Get understanding! This Amplified translation is definitely amplified here’s. One of the underutilized tools for getting more wisdom and understanding that we have access to is different translations of the Word of God. This is one of the reasons each month I rotate the Get Wisdom Every Day posts to a different translation. The Blue Letter Bible app and website is my favorite to read the original Hebrew of Proverbs. Combining these tools as you read, study, and teach the Word will help you get more of God’s wisdom and increase our understanding.

Action Idea

Go to your favorite verse in the Bible, a cornerstone verse for you, and look up and read the NIV, NLT, AMP, ESV, MSG, and the NKJV. You’ll likely see some variations that will help you gain insight that you didn’t have previously. Next, go to that same verse in the Blue Letter Bible app or website and look up the Hebrew using the Interlinear/Concordance. It’s fascinating! From there it’s fun and insightful to dive into other verses using specific Hebrew words that make your favorite verse so powerful. Enjoy!
