Word play in aramaic and syriac
#59
Shlama'

I'm happy because I have found again all my manuscripts. So I just look in my peshitto (according to the text of Rabbula Gospels, 586 AD), and it reads in John "Rabouli"... I've looked to some inscriptions written betwen 6 and 200 AD too, and the "line" of the lamad is 2 times longers than the nun line (the lamad is higher than the others letters too, exept with tet, khaf, taw...) so the two letters are quitely differents...
The Khabouris reads Rabouli too, although Etheridge and Murdock read Rabouni (if the transleters want read rabbouni, it's not impossible that the anciants scribes did it too). And the lamad is higher than the others letters...

The codex bezae D 05 in its greek part reads "rabbwnei" (olegetaikedidaskale) and in its latin part (the mix of the translation with a vetus latina) "rabboni" (quod | dicitturdmemagister).
The III century's coptic (sahidic) version reads: hrabbounei. According to the apparatus, Arm cdd (armenian I suppose) reads rabbi. Sinaic and Alexandrinus read rabbouni.
The Gutenberg Bible reads :rabboni.
The Vaticanus B03 reads Rabbounei.

I still think that rabbouli is the original one, it's more easy to a scribe to "correct" rabbouli in rabbouni (as Etheridge and Murdock did it) than to make a mistake... And as I say, the aramaic scribe knew their text (the latin/greek scribes not, sometime they didn't even know the greek)... And they wasen't evertime copiing: sometime an other one was reading the text aloud, and the scribe wrote... So it's difficult to meisread a lamad for a nun...
