At mine school, we’re re-enacting the train station of the cross on great Friday, and also during Jesus’ final moments when on the Cross, the shouts out, “eloi, eloi, lama sabachthani.”

What would be the exactly pronunciation the this? i’m to teach mine friend that is play Jesus on how to say this words because I’m the just one who knows how to speak Aramaic, and so i’m to teach the so that he no butcher it.

You are watching: Eli eli lama sabachthani pronunciation audio

However on the script, that quoted above is what is shown. The saying isn’t in Sureth. Therefore it’s tough to interpret this properly. Could I gain some aid please?

All I know is, “el-ah-hee, el-ah-hee”.

The way the others pronounced that was, EEE-LI, EE-LI. Eli together in the surname lol. Fully butchered.

(we just went through the manuscript today, and discussed roles, soon we will be rehearsing come re-enact the station of the cross in prior of the entirety school - a legacy that we do each year - and then the local parish on great Friday which’ll be attended by Anthony Fisher).

We may speak Aramaic yet the dialect Jesus spoke is west Aramaic. Assyrians speak eastern Aramaic for this reason it's complicated to know the biblical dialects of Aramaic.

This expression is in a very old west Aramaic language. I’m not sure if any kind of Assyrian might give you precise pronunciation since we probably don’t recognize either :)

The dialect talked by Jesus was very, an extremely different to what contemporary Assyrians speak today. Jesus spoke a very old (Middle?) Galilean, Western, Jewish Aramaic. Assyrians this particular day speak North-Eastern, Christian, neo-Aramaic.

The Aramaic of Jesus almost seems closer come Hebrew 보다 to contemporary Assyrian. I understand it isn’t genetically closer, but just in regards to vocabulary and some grammar and stuff.

It goes like this:

“Ee-la-hee, Ee-la-hee, la-ma sa-buck-tha-nii”

Considering that this is Jewish Aramaic, i took the liberty of asking a spiritual Jewish work-related colleague. He stated “Ayli ayli lama sabakhtani” wherein the “ay” in “ayli” is pronounced like “play” or “day” and the “li” is pronounced choose the Chinese lock Li/Lee.

That's the correct pronunciation in contemporary Judeo-Aramaic, but contemporary Judeo-Aramaic is lower from middle Babylonian Aramaic, if Jesus would have spoken Galilean Aramaic. I'm no sure how much distinction that would have made in pronunciation, although there are distinctions in the dialects- largely in just how much Hebrew influence there is (strangely, center Babylonian Aramaic has a many more Hebrew).

Also, to be honest we don't really understand the proper old pronunciation, since the vowels space not created (well, someone could know, yet the median speaker doesn't). The modern-day vowelization is influenced by Hebrew vowelization and we pronounce a many words in different way than castle would have actually in the time of Jesus. It also varies between communities the same as with Hebrew.
