Subject:  [AramaicNT] I do not recomend the translation (AEINT)

We can cover other issues later ... lets clear up the factual stuff here first.

JAMES now, about the AEINT (above)
"not familiar"
"not having seen"
"had not seen"

JAMES before
"am aware"
"the interliniar is helpful"

AND compares the translation to that of Murdock, unfavorably.
Here is what James wrote (spelling errors maintained.)

Incredible and sad, please drop the charades.

Yes I am aware of the edition you mention, which is an interliniar
of the Peshitta NT published by the Way Intl. I do not recomend the
translation, however the interliniar is helpful. The best translation
of the Peshitta NT available is that of James Murdock. (Until my version
is published).

It is unwise to leave a paper trail if you want to you seek plausible
deniability later.
