Revelation 1:13
Shlama Akhay,

I felt something stirring within me to check out the Aramaic words used in the Peshitto of Revelation 1:13 at the site. At first I thought...well..why post something like this at
Different things really struck me about this verse. For one thing, I couldn't find an Aramaic-to-English translation that used the word 'ephod' which is what the Aramaic word [font=Estrangelo (V1.1)]0dwp0[/font] means! Murdock has 'clothed to the feet'-----Etheridge has 'clothed to the foot'---Lamsa has 'wearing a long vestment'. Victor Alexander has 'completely attired' and in the footnote--"That wore covering attire"--Or: long robe.
The important thing that is missing here to the casual reader is that Yeshua is not 'clothed to the foot' in just any garment. The garment according to is the priestly garment called the 'ephod'.
Another thing that really struck me is that we might have a Palestinian Aramaic loanword in an Assyrian Aramaic text! I say that because Smith's Compendious tells us that the usual word in Syriac for 'ephod' is [font=Estrangelo (V1.1)]Fdp [/font]. [font=Estrangelo (V1.1)]0dwp0[/font] is listed in the Compendious as 'Heb. f.' (Hebrew feminine)!!
To appreciate the full picture, soak all this in from 1:12 & 13---Yeshua is wearing a priestly garment, the ephod, and with a golden girdle about his breast, in the midst of the seven golden menorahs...

Shlama w'Burkate, Larry Kelsey
