      Yes, there is, but it has not yet appeared in the critical edition by the
      Peshitta Institute of Leiden (but the edition of 1[3] Ezra is available:
      Heinrich Schneider, W. Baars and J. C. H. Lebram, The Old Testament in
      Syriac According to the Peshitta Version, IV.6: Canticles or Odes - Prayer
      of Manasseh - Apocryphal Psalms - Psalms of Solomon - Tobit - 1[3] Esdras,
      Leiden, Brill, 1972). So you will have to resort to the images of ms 7a1
      (Codex Ambrosianus), by the Biblical Manuscripts Project:

      http://alpha.reltech.org:8083/cgi-bin/Ebind2html/BibleMSS/7a1

      Also of use:

      C. A. Hawley, A Critical Examination of the Peshitta Version of the Book of
      Ezra (Contributions to Oriental History and Philology, 7), New York 1922;

      C. Moss, "The Peshitta Version of Ezra", Le Muséon 46 (1933) 55-110;

      R. L. Harris, The Peshitta to Nehemiah: A Textual-critical Analysis,
      unpublished diss., Philadelphia 1947.

      BTW, a complete and updated list of the editions of the extant witnesses to
      the Hebrew Bible would be a vary valuable commodity. Does anyone know of
      any project aiming at something like that?

      Best wishes,
      Giuseppe
