The Book of Yashar/Praise

According to some christian commentaries the "Book of the upright"
is an early chronicle of the hebrews like the "book of the wars of the lord"
(sefer milh'amot YHWH) , now lost.

But according to rabbinical sources sefer hayashar = torah.
The targum goes in this sense : sifra d'orayta (The book of the Law)
orayta is the "normal" translation of torah in Jewish Aramaic.

But if it's the torah , what is it referering to ? (i don't know)

The peshitta translation makes me think it maybe was an early
book of liturgy, but that's just a guess.

Too bad syriac commentaries are so hard to find ...
