by Mark Lidzbarski, translated from German by Wikisource
The text below is an English translation of Mark Lidzbarski's Ginzā: Der Schatz oder das grosse Buch der Mandäer, which is in turn a 1925 German translation of the Classical Mandaic Ginza Rabba.

The Ginza Rabba is the most important holy scripture of Mandaeism. It was originally written in Classical Mandaic, a linguistic variety of Aramaic.

The Ginza Rabba is divided into two main sections, the Right Ginza and the Left Ginza.


Right Ginza[edit]
