A new English translation of the book of Lamentations and the Epistles of Baruch in the Syriac Peshitta, accompanied by the fully-vocalized Syriac text on facing pages so that both can be studied together. Greenberg and Walter furnish an Introduction giving background information about the Syriac text, and explain and illustrate their translation technique, and Addenda, giving examples of mistranslation from the original Hebrew into Syriac, examples of apparent corruption of the Syriac text which occurred prior to our extant manuscripts, and a discussion of the Syriac translation of many passages of particularly difficult Hebrew. There are additionally three Appendices: the first compares the versification of the Syriac text used here, printed in Mosul by the Dominicans in the nineteenth century, with that of manuscript 7a1 as edited and used as the basic text of the Leiden Peshitta edition of Lamentations and the Epistles of Baruch. A second compares the variants of Mosul with Leiden and indicates when its variants lack any support from ancient manuscripts. A third gives an overview of the rendering of Hebrew names into Syriac.
