PESHITTO, or PESHITO (i.e. " simple "), the standard version of the Bible in the Syriac language. It was long supposed to be the original Syriac version, but is now generally recognized as representing a revision made by Rabbula, bishop of Edessa, early in the 5th century, an attempt at standardizing the Syriac text such as Jerome had made for the Latin in his Vulgate. (See BIBLE.)
