How do you say "Jesus Christ" in Syriac? Just curious.
주 예수 그리스도 하느님의 아들이시여 저 이 죄인을 불쌍히 여기소서.

I think it's something like 'Yashua M'sheekhah' but I'm not sure.

In Western Syriac Yeshou` MsheeHo, H being the pharyngeal exhale and ` being another pharyngeal consonant probably comparable to a kind of 'grunt'.

You will also find IIshoo'.  In the East, they say m'shiikhaa
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Yeshu is correct.  The final u, is a heavy u sound, coming from your mid throat area.  Msheekha or Msheekho depending on western or eastern dialects, come from the root "msh" basically meaning anointed.

Yes, the Athoraya does something quite unexpected as trade H for kh whilst still keeping all the other emphatics intact.
