"Master YHWH" and "I AM"s in the Peshitta
somewhat-strange situation in Greek mss. vs. clarity in Aramaic Peshitta: Matthew 25:44 & 1 Corinthians 12:3

Greek mss. have Jesus talking about people calling him "Kurios" i.e. Lord/Master shortly before they go off to punishment,
and at the same time have Paul saying that it's impossible to say "Jesus is Kurios" except by the Holy Spirit:

Matthew 25:44-46 (KJV)
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=";HCSB;NABRE;MOUNCE"> ... BRE;MOUNCE</a><!-- m -->
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying,
Lord ["Kurios" in Greek mss.], when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison,
and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying,
Verily I say unto you,
Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these,
ye did it not to me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment:
but the righteous into life eternal.

1 Corinthians 12:3 (HCSB)
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=";HCSB;NABRE;MOUNCE"> ... BRE;MOUNCE</a><!-- m -->
Therefore I am informing you that
no one speaking by the Spirit of God says, "Jesus is cursed,"
and no one can say, "Jesus is Lord [Kurios]," except by the Holy Spirit.

The original Aramaic of the Peshitta lacks that somewhat-strange situation, since it has "Maran" (our Lord/Master) in Mt 25:44, and the very different "Mar-Ya" (almost always: Master YHWH) in 1 Cor 12:

Matthew 25 (based on Younan)
44. Even then they will answer and say,
'Maran [our Lord/Master], when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison,
and (did) not minister to you?'
45. Then he will answer and say to them,
'Amain I say to you,
inasmuch as you did not (do) to one of these little ones,
you also did not do to me.'
46. And these will depart to everlasting torment,
but the zadiqa [righteous] to everlasting life."

1 Corinthians 12:3 (based on Murdock from the Peshitta Tool at <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m -->, and looking at Khabouris)
I therefore inform you, that
there is no man, that speaks by the Rukha of Allaha, who says that "Yeshua is accursed":
neither can a man say that "Yeshua is of Mar-Ya" [Master YHWH], except by the Rukha d'Qudsha [Spirit of Holiness].
