The Old Testament: Part I: Genesis - 1 Samuel

ByAmerican Mission Press

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This volume contains the first part (Genesis – 1 Samuel) of the original issue of the complete Old Testament published by the American Protestant Mission to the Assyrians in Urmia, Iran in 1852. The book was printed in both the newly developed Modern Assyrian language and the Syriac language that was the liturgical and only literary language in use among the Assyrians before the creation of the new literary language. The texts are presented in parallel columns. This volume represents the first time that the complete Old Testament was published in Assyrian and it represents one of only three known instances where the American Mission published any text in Syriac. In this edition, the Assyrian translation was made from the Hebrew version rather than from the Syriac Peshitta version.
