Translations Compared: Eastern or Western?

Thanks for the heads-up, I fixed it now.

I was under the impression that she started her work long before the Way International got started, and that she joined with them to help them out as she was by that time qualified to do so, and then afterwards continued to finish what she had set out to do in the first place -which was to produce a translation without biases strewn throughout.

Yes she did say that the Strong's numbering was the Way International's idea that she decided to incorporate in to her work.

Yes I got the idea that she is one that wishes to hold onto her Western Greco-Christian Doctrinal Practises, so she decides to hold the Eastern Aramaic Peshitta in a position of lower esteem, like unto it's Western rendition, in order to gaze upon it with a less authoritative veiw. Other wise she would be faced with FACTS which would necessitate repentance of many unorthodox practices.

It should be of no surprise though as this is highly common among all the Greek Supremacist. They have to hold onto what little Greco-Roman translations they can find as the oldest and best of our day in order to justify their heritage. Yet it is funny that the extant Greek text which date back no farther than the Western Peshitto's days, and are no more prevalent than that of the Western PeshittO copies, which are know to be 5th century concoctions. And now here is the real kicker, the Oldest Eastern PeshittA Texts are dated back to this same time frame as well and are just as prevalent in the amount of extant copies still available to us today. So really the Greek Primmest have no so-called Older text to draw from than that of the Eastern PeshittA Textural tradition.

Interesting what she said about Lamsa being pressured to not be so literal, and I wonder if there was pressure placed on him to make it as close to the KJV as possible.
I was struck with the same idea, and could also no help but wonder as well as to just how much they made him straighten out the lunatical essence within his translation?

Anyway, I wish that Janet would had put her translational notes into her Messianic Version so that I would not have to do so much mental white washing as I muddle through the plethora of Hellenizations in her Creco-sitto Version in order to make benefit of the footnotes. And, I really like her Messianic Version other than a hand full of the Western heretical inundations wrought upon the Eastern PeshittA Text from the 5th century onward. But these are few and far in between, and it doesn't take much white-outing to get around them, weighing in with only 10 out of 19 PeshittO inundations. Yep a little white-out tape and a fine tipped black ball-point pen is able to fix a thing here and there, yet no where near the massive litterations of Helleniazation strewn about the other.

For the reasons listed above I would prefer Roth's Hebra-ShittA due to the lack of Hellenized words/names, and that he has translational notes therein if it was not for the blunderous translational errors that are getting a bit old now a days (unto a 5th and most likely sixth Version), Ow Vey <!-- sSad --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/sad.gif" alt="Sad" title="Sad" /><!-- sSad --> .

Oh, for the day wherefore the crocked would be made straight. Yea, I pray an unHellenized, English translation of the Eastern Aramaic PeshittA Text would come forth <!-- sHuh --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/huh.gif" alt="Huh" title="Huh" /><!-- sHuh --> .
