An Aramaic Pronunciation Guide

I’ve had some faithful companions wonder how to pronounce the Aramaic translation of “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted” that is in this week’s blog, The Language Of Love. A very good question and I should have stated how I pronounce the words, as a helpful hint for those who want to join in speaking the words of Jesus in his own language as part of their daily prayer. Here goes:

“wSalxani imassayu latbirai libba tubaihon labile dhinnon itbayun.”

I pronounce it:

Saulshahnee emmasawyou lahtbearee leebah tubahone lahbeel deeknown itbahyune
