"Master YHWH" and "I AM"s in the Peshitta
Regarding the 'long ending of Mark,' the Diatesseron shows that practically all of it was present as of A.D. 175. It's also in the original Aramaic of the Peshitta.

The HCSB notes that concerning Mark 16:9-20, "other mss omit" it.

The Peshitta has the text for Mark 16:9-20, with the exception that it lacks the addition of "with their hands" in verse 18. Here's that addition:
Mark 16:18 (HCSB)
they will pick up snakes;[a: Other mss add _with their hands_]
