The New Testament Peshitta and Peshitto
#22
Sam,

I have the Aramaic Scripture Research Peshitta NT with Hebrew translation you mentioned. It claims to be the Eastern Peshitta text with the 5 books of the Western canon added from the Harklean Version of AD 616. It also has the pericope de adultera added (John 7:53-8:1-11) from Lee's edition and a couple other verses in Luke which are not in any Peshitta ms.

I also noticed that the ad Trinitae verse 1 John 5:7 is included, which surprised me because 1 John is supposed to be from the Eastern Peshitta text which does not contain that verse. I believe it comes from an older edition in which the editor translated Greek into Aramaic for that verse. Very few Greek mss. contain the reading, however, many Latin Vulgate mss. do contain it.

The Aramaic-Hebrew edition is great for learning Aramaic if you know some Hebrew, or Hebrew if you know Aramaic. It is not the best representative of The Peshitta text available, nor a good representative of the Western Peshitto text. For the latter, I like The Syriac Bible, 1979 Ed., though the script is Western Serto. It is based , (for The NT) on critical editions of Gwilliam and Pusey for the Gospels and Paul's epistles as well as Gwynn's Edition of The Catholic Epistles and Apocalypse(which differs considerably from the HarKlean text of the other volume you inquired about).

Blessings,


Dave B
