Shlama Kulkon:
I've been intrigued for some time now about certain morphed phrases from the Peshitta AN"K, that are used in the Peshitta New Testament. In particular is the apostle Paul's greeting in I Corinthians 16:20, II Corinthians 13:12, Philippians 4:21, Colossians 4:15, I Thessalonians 5:26 and II Thessalonians 3:17. Now, II Thessalonians 3:17 gives a clue as to the importance of his salutation.

I Corinthians 16:20
"All the brethren ask for your peace,
ask the peace of one another with a holy kiss."
[font="Estrangelo (V1.1)"]Jwhlk Nyx0 Jwkml4b Nyl04[/font]
[font="Estrangelo (V1.1)"]F4ydq Fq4wnb dxd dx 0ml4b wl04[/font]

II Corinthians 13:12
"ask the peace of one another with a holy kiss."
[font="Estrangelo (V1.1)"]F4ydq Fq4wnb dxd dx 0ml4b wl04[/font]

Philippians 4:21
"Pray for the peace of the holy ones that are in Yeshua Meshikha."
[font="Estrangelo (V1.1)"]0xy4m (w4ybd 04ydq Jwhlkd 0ml4b wl04[/font]

Colossians 4:15
"Pray for the peace of the brethren that are in Laodicea."
[font="Estrangelo (V1.1)"]0tqydlbd 0x0d 0ml4b wl04[/font]

I Thessalonians 5:26
"Pray for the peace of all the holy brethren with a holy kiss."
[font="Estrangelo (V1.1)"]F4ydq Fq4wnb Jwhlk Nyx0d 0ml4b wl04[/font]

II Thessalonians 3:17
"Salutation by the writing of my hand, I Paulos, have written,
which is the sign in all my epistles, so I write."
[font="Estrangelo (V1.1)"]tbtk Swlwp 0n0 Ydy0 tbtkb wl04[/font]
[font="Estrangelo (V1.1)"]0n0 Btk 0nkh Ytrg0 Nyhlkbd F0 Yhwty0d[/font]

In the Peshitta AN"K, Ambrosiano Codex, Psalm 122:6 uses this precise phrase.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem they shall prosper that love you.
[font="Estrangelo (V1.1)"]Ykymxr Nynyhk Jwwhn Ml4rw0 0ml4b wl04[/font]

So it would appear that this is what the apostle Paul is referring to as "salutation by the writing of my hand" in II Thesalonians 3:17. The list is incomplete but this gives a good point of reference. Any comments?

Shlama Akhi Stephen,

I edited your post simply to put quotes around the font name, that's the only way the Estrangelo will show up properly.

Thank you.

I should post a sticky on how to do this, now that I figured out the change in the forum software!
