Syriac (AModern) Version Of The Scriptures

The modern Syriac language, written in Nestorian characters, and spoken by the, Christians of the latter name, is a very corrupt dialect of the ancient Svriac, abounding in Persian, Turkish, and Kurdish words, and pronounced very harshly. Mr. Perrkins, of the American Board of Missions, commenced, in 1836, a translation of the Scriptures from the ancient or ecclesiastical language into the vernacular now in use among the people. The gospels were soon issued from the press at Oroomiah, and later the entire Bible. See Bible of Every Land, page 46.
