Acts in Aramaic - distazo - 11-13-2010

Hi There,

I figured (more or less) that 'Abdin' would be the phonetic translation of the book 'Acts' in the NT.

Is this right?

i was under the impression it was ABDE' D'SHLEEKHA?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the Rukkakha under the beth indicate a soft consonant? Thus it would be Avadin or Avade.

Are you asking what word is used in the Peshitta for "Acts" as in the "Acts of the Apostles" or are you asking what is the best Aramaic translation for the word "Acts"?

'abdin means "servants". The form of the word is in the absolute plural state.

This is what I came up with when I searched for the words on Dukhrana:

Ok, thank you! I'm asking for the correct Aramaic translation of the word for 'Acts of the Apostles' (indeed)
