Settling this once and for all!

+Shamasha

Hi Paul, your response brought me to John the Baptizer's words in regards to 'amud. Did he say I 'amud you WITH water or did he say I 'amud you IN water? The Peshitta reads "lkwn" which dukhrana.com shows to mean "to, for".
It's actually the next word that has the particle you're looking for. The word is "b'maya" - maya is water, like in Hebrew mayim, and the b' is the particle that can mean both "in" or "with". So as far as I'm aware, and Paul correct me if I'm wrong, but the text can be taken either way.
