God in Aramaic

There are two words for God in Aramaic El and alaha  (Syriac) or Elahi (Biblical Aramaic).The word is almost identical to the Arabic 'alah'.

Jesus's last words on the cross were Εli,Εli lama sabbachtani?-God,God,why have you forsaken me? This phrase is from the New Testament the original being in Greek-Ηλί,Ηλί λαμά σαβαχθανί;In the same book there is another version of the same phrase-Ελοί,Ελοί λαμά σαβαχθανί;

elahi-God in the Aramaic Square script (Hebrew)


Here is the word Elahi with the vowels (the dots).




Now let us take a look how el and alaha are written in the Syriac Estrangela script.

eli or ʾyl
alaha or ʾlhʾ
