Errors in the Peshitta OT from the Leiden instittute.
#23
That's a good question.

And I will give you a good answer.

let us read the subsequent verses:


As for Mathew 27:46:

27:46 And about the ninth hour, Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? That is to say, My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me?

27:47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elijah.

27:48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.

27:49 The rest said, Let be. let us see wether Elijah will come to save him.

.....Jesus gives up the ghost

27:54 Now when the Centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

27:55 And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him.


As for Mark 15:34:

15:34 And at the ninth hour, Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

15:35 And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elijah.

15:36 And one ran and filled a sponge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elijah will come to take him down.

....He gives up the ghost.

15:39 And when the centurion, which stood over againsthim, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.

15:40 There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;



Even if Aramaic was the linga franca in the land, the Romans were an occupying power and surely only the top offi8cials were trained in Aramaic to administer the land.

The Romans were near Jesus, and the women were afar off. Those near mistook what he was saying. Those afar off probably could not hear it - and if they could - did not comment upon it. It was clearly the Centurions commenting upon it saying - "Well let's see if Elijah comes to save him"
