Peshitta

(peh sshit' taw) Common Syriac version of the Scriptures. The Old Testament was likely translated between A.D. 100,300. The New Testament translation dates from before A.D. 400. The Peshitta lacked those books rejected by the Syriac-speaking churches (2Peter; 2,3John; Jude; Revelation). See Bible, Text and Versions.
