Peshitta

Date and language:1816 - Syriac edition.

Vertaling: The Syriac Peshitta is, alongside the Greek Septuagint and the Latin Vulgate , one of the oldest Bible translations of the New Testament.

Godsnaam: With regard to the divine Name it is notable that the Peshitta reproduces the Tetragrammaton as "Mar-Jah". "Mar-Jah" means "Lord Jah". Jah is an abbreviation for the Divine Name. In this edition from 1816 "Mar-Jah" is written 173 times.

The Syriac text is read from the right to the left, like Hebrew.
