This database consists of unique translation work from Light of the Word Ministry, including:
1. The PEM version. PEM is a morphological version matching the Peshitta Aramaic version PES that ships with the BibleWorks 7 or later package.
2. Notes and lexical information for each word in the Peshitta (PES) and PEM, accessible by mouse cursor in the Browse Window and displayed in the Analysis Window as usual.
3. Glosses, for the Peshitta text, that appear in a popup window when the mouse cursor is placed over a word in the PES or PEM version.
Note: the latest BibleWorks 7 downloads and all later BibleWorks versions now provide a free Peshitta bundle which contains the Etheridge, Lewis, Murdock, and Norton English Translations of the Peshitta. It also contains the brand new MGI English translation of the Peshitta, done by Janet Magiera, the companion text for the PEM morphological database. This free bundle is required for the proper functioning of the APNT module.
The MGI Translation is also available in print at www.lightofword.org/order/apntt.htm. The following is from the back cover of this new print edition:
Why a New Translation of the Peshitta?
This book is of tremendous value to the serious student of Holy Scripture. It will enable the reader to examine the Holy Scriptures in the language of Jesus and the apostles. Only through the lens of the Aramaic language can one truly understand nuances and meanings lost in other translations of the New Testament. This translation enables the reader to truly see the texts in their original meaning and context and to hear the true power of the Words of God.
The Peshitta sheds light on meanings otherwise lost. Although virtually unknown by most Christians and students of the Holy Scripture in the Western world, this version of the Holy Scripture has remained intact for at least 1600 years! It is respected by Christians, Jews, and Muslims throughout the world. It is a bridge of understanding between these three great religions. It can break down barriers that need not exist and shed light on the source texts that bring peace, understanding, enlightenment, and salvation. And now you can study the meanings and sounds of the Aramaic language of the Peshitta. This book makes it easy for the average reader to study what has been only available to scholars and Near Eastern churches in the past. What a truly powerful way to glean the life of each word of Jesus and the apostles.
Jan Magiera has made a major contribution to those of us interested in knowing the message of the Holy Scripture.
