Hello, I am wondering how to translate "Love Thy Enemy" into syriac. I do not have a program to type it and was wondering if someone could help me out. Thanks!

    Since this occurs in the Bible, I just looked it up in the Syriac Bible and I found "love your enemies" in Matt. 5:44 here (takes a while to load up), which is:

    ܐܰܚܶܒ݂ܘ ܠܰܒ݂ܥܶܠܕ݁ܒ݂ܳܒ݂ܰܝܟ݁ܽܘܢ

    or without the diacritics:

    ܐܚܒܘ ܠܒܥܠܕܒܒܝܟܘܢ

    This isn't exactly what you asked for, but I'm hesitant to change it because I'm not sure I can change it and still have it be grammatical (I just don't know enough about Syriac). Hope this helps though.
