Both the NASB and AMP can be downloaded from the
publisher for free. Sure, its a windows program, so
you will have to use something like WINE in order to
get access to the text. 

Once its installed though, the full text of these
bibles is in a single plain text file. From there is
rather trivial to generate a sword module. (thats how
I made my NASB and AMP modules for Sword.)
