Errors in the Peshitta OT from the Leiden instittute.
#1
Upon reviewing the data published on the web from the Leiden insititute, I have noticed a great deal of errors.

For instance, take a look at my first entry concerning Genesis, chapter 9.

verses 16 and 17 are missing.

0915 )tdkr qymy dbyn:y wlkwn, wbyt kl np$) xyt) d(mkwn, wbyt kl bsr, wl) nhwwn twb m:y) dTwpn) lm.xblw kl`bsr,
0918 )bwhy d=kn(n,


And now take a look at Exodus chapter 10

verse 22 has two different entries, out-of-sequence:

1021 w)m_r mry) l-mw$), )rym )ydk lwt $my), wn_hw) x$k) (l klh. )r( d=mcryn, wn(m_T x$k),
1022 w)rym -mw$) )ydh l$my) whw) x$k) w(mTn) bklh. )r() d=mcryn, tlt ywm:y_n,
1023 l) x_z) )n$ l)xwhy,
1022 wl) qm )n$ mn dwkth_ tlt) ywm:yn, wlklhwn bn:y -)ysryl hw_) nwhr byt mwt.bhwn,

And so on.

You can quickly link to the leiden via here to confirm: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://cal1.cn.huc.edu/Peshitta.notice.html">http://cal1.cn.huc.edu/Peshitta.notice.html</a><!-- m -->



I have emailed the Leiden institute about a week ago, but they have not responded. I have asked another user on this forum and he had no idea of the cause.

Does anybody know of the cause of this, if it is something other than a technical failure on the part of the compilers and editors at the Leiden institutue?

If this source cannot be trusted, is there another which can be trusted?
