CHAT: Aramaic in the New Testament

In addition to the "Corban" (Mark 7:11) and "Maranatha" (1 Cor 16:22)
which we have already discussed, there are also the following, for
which Greek translations immediately follow:

        "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?" (Mark 15:34)
        "Rabboni" (John 20:16)
        "Talitha cumi" (Mark 5:41)

"Raca" is used without translation in Matt 5:22 (stupid? crazy?). There are
also of course a huge number of placenames and personal names.

Schlingt dreifach einen Kreis vom dies / Schliess eurer Aug vor heiliger Schau
Den er genoss vom Honig-Tau / Und trank die Milch vom Paradies.
