"Eil, Eil": Possible Scribal Error?
Another interesting thing to note is that Syriac is (as far as I am aware) the only dialect of Aramaic to spell this word plene in this particular manner. The "normal" form /)l/ as a generic name for "God" (as opposed to El, the deity) doesn't really show up in Aramaic until the post-Exillic period in Jewish texts. To me that says that it's what's translational (in multiple senses, be it from Hebrew or otherwise).

Perhaps later I'll do a bit of lexical digging and see if I missed any examples.
