  Samaritan Hebrew language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Samaritan Hebrew language is a descendant of Biblical Hebrew as pronounced and written by the Samaritans.
It is written in the Samaritan alphabet, a direct descendant of the Paleo-Hebrew alphabet (itself a variation on the Phoenician alphabet), whereas all other varieties of Hebrew are written in the later Hebrew alphabet, a variation on the Aramaic alphabet.
The Samaritan pronunciation of Hebrew differs in several respects from most others.

Simply, the Samaritan Pentateuch (SamP) is a later recension of the Hebrew Torah text, less faithfully rendered than in the Masoretic Text (MT).
