View Full Version : Peshitta NT in Hebrew with Vowel Pointing

07-19-2007, 11:04 AM
Ewan MacLeod has made available the Peshitta New Testament with Hebrew letters and vowel pointing.

In contrast to the current PEH database, this text contains vowels, which makes it a useful addition to BibleWorks. The presence of vowels makes it easier at times to understand the text, and it helps one learn how to pronounce the text. In addition, there are some minor differences between the two texts. For best use of this text, use the Text Comparison facility in BibleWorks to highlight the differences when you are studying the Peshitta.
