Must the Scriptures be written in a ???global language????
Thirdwoe Wrote:Does Etheridge and Murdoch, translate from an Eastern Peshitta text? or the Western Peshitto text?

And is the 1905 considered a western text? vs the Khabouris, which is an Eastern text?

I have noticed a few variants in these two texts recently.


First it's paramount to understand the significant differences between the Eastern Peshitta and the Western Peshitto.

1) (John 7:53-8:11) Pericope adulterae. (Western Peshitto only)

2a) (Hebrews 2:9) s'tar min Alaha, apart from Alaha. (Eastern Peshita)
2b) (Hebrews 2:9 b'taybuta Alaha, by the grace of Alaha. (Western Peshitta)

There are subtle differences in grammar and scribal errors. In fact, I tend to believe that these variances are evenly distributed in both the Eastern Peshitta and the Western Peshitto.

The Western Peshitto includes II Peter, II John, III John, Jude and Revelation, for a full compliment of 27 books, while the Eastern Peshitta contains 22 original Aramaic books, including one book each for James, Peter and John.

As for the source texts of Murdock and Etheridge, they appear to be the Western Peshitto. Both authors have made marginal notes concerning the significant differences such as John 7:53-8:11) (pericope adulterae) and Hebrews 2:9.

I'll get back tto the 1905 later. I noted many of the variants between the 105 and the Khabouris Codex in my transcription, which can be downloaded from Dukhrana Biblical Research at <!-- w --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- w -->
