Hebrews 13:2
Shlama Akhay,

Here's a small but interesting difference between the PNT and GNT of Hebrews 13:2. The Greek doesn't make reference to being privileged or worthy while the Peshitta text does.

Do not forget hospitality, for by this some unknowingly took in angels as guests. (LITV-Literal Translation of the Holy Bible)

Do not neglect to show kindness to strangers; for, in this way, some, without knowing it, have had angels as their guests. (1912 Weymouth NT)

Aramaic-to-English translations are as follows:

And forget not kindness to strangers; for thereby some have been privileged to entertain angels, unawares. (James Murdock)

and kindness to strangers forget not; for in this some who were made worthy, while not perceiving it, have received angels. (John Wesley Etheridge)

And forget not hospitality toward strangers; for thereby some were worthy to entertain angels unawares. (Lamsa)

The Aramaic word [font=Estrangelo (V1.1)]ww4[/font] means smooth, wipe, worthy, equal, agree, spread. (SEDRA's definitions)
