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

What would be the correct pronunciation of this? ns to teach my friend who is play Jesus on how to say this words since I’m the only one who knows exactly how to speak Aramaic, and so ns to teach him so the he no butcher it.

You are watching: Eli eli lama sabachthani pronunciation audio

However ~ above the script, the quoted over is what is shown. The saying no in Sureth. So it’s hard to translate this properly. Could I gain some help please?

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

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

(we simply went with the script today, and also discussed roles, shortly we will certainly be rehearsing to re-enact the stations of the overcome in former of the whole school - a legacy that we do every year - and then the local parish on good Friday which’ll be attended by Anthony Fisher).

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

This expression is in a very old western Aramaic language. I’m not certain if any Assyrian can give you an exact pronunciation since we probably don’t recognize either :)

The dialect talked by Jesus to be very, an extremely different come what modern Assyrians speak today. Jesus speak a very old (Middle?) Galilean, Western, Jewish Aramaic. Assyrians today speak North-Eastern, Christian, neo-Aramaic.

The Aramaic that Jesus nearly seems closer come Hebrew 보다 to contemporary Assyrian. I understand it no genetically closer, but just in terms of vocabulary and also some grammar and also stuff.

Considering the this is Jewish Aramaic, i took the liberty of questioning a spiritual Jewish work-related colleague. He said “Ayli ayli lama sabakhtani” where the “ay” in “ayli” is pronounced prefer “play” or “day” and also the “li” is pronounced choose the Chinese castle Li/Lee.

That's the exactly pronunciation in modern Judeo-Aramaic, but contemporary Judeo-Aramaic is descended from center Babylonian Aramaic, if Jesus would have talked Galilean Aramaic. I'm no sure how much distinction that would have actually made in pronunciation, although over there are distinctions in the dialects- mainly in how much Hebrew affect there is (strangely, middle Babylonian Aramaic has a many more Hebrew).

Also, come be ethical we don't really recognize the proper ancient pronunciation, because the vowels room not created (well, someone might know, however the average speaker doesn't). The contemporary vowelization is affected by Hebrew vowelization and we express a most words in different way than castle would have actually in the time of Jesus. It also varies in between communities the same as with Hebrew.
