Excerpt from The Syrian Churches: Their Early History, Liturgies, and Literature; With a Literal Translation of the Four Gospels From the Peschito, or Canon of Holy Scripture in Use Among the Oriental Christians From the Earliest Times

IN a former along with a translation Of some parts of the Syriac New Testament, I submitted an account Of the several versions Of holy scripture extant in that language. This consisted Of successive notices of the Old Testament in Aramean, that, namely, in the possession Of the Syrians, and the various Targums Of the Hebrew synagogue; the versions Of the New Testament, the Philoxenian, Jerusalem, and Karkaphen Sian and, more largely, the Peschito, or Old Syriac in illustration of its great antiquity; its relation to the original Greek, and to certain oriental versions; the critical uses to which it may be applied, and the different editions Of it which have been printed since its introduction into Europe.
