“In a prophecy concerning our Lord, Isaiah (7:14) says, “A virgin” “[R.V. marg., `the virgin’] shall conceive, and bear a son” (comp. Luke 1:31-35). The people of the land of Zidon are thus “referred to by Isaiah (23:12), “O thou oppressed virgin,” “daughter of Zidon;” and of the people of Israel, Jeremiah” “(18:13) says, “The virgin of Israel hath done a very horrible” “thing.”
