It is remarkable and surprising how little has been done for the Version which is second in importance only to the Septuagint. For the purposes of recovering readings of the pre-masoretic text, undoubtedly the Peshitta plays an important role in the critics apparatus. Nevertheless, that which Septuagint study has boasted for centuries, namely and index which has for each Greek word the Hebrew or Aramaic equivalent, has not yet found a place in the critical apparatus of Peshitta study. A full Syriac-Hebrew index for the Old Testament remains as yet a desideratum...The present dissertation continues the work for the Book of Job.
