Virgin : In a prophecy concerning our Lord, Isaiah (Acts 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 (Luke 23:12), "O thou oppressed virgin, daughter of Zidon;" and of the people of Israel, Jeremiah (Luke 18:13) says, "The virgin of Israel hath done a very horrible thing."
