Gen: 24: 16 & 43, Rebecca was a virgin

Gen. 24:16 And the damsel was very fair to look upon, a virgin, בְּתוּלָה ( b'tulah ) neither had any man known her: and she went down to the well, and filled her pitcher, and came up.

Gen. 24:43 Behold, I stand by the well of water; and it shall come to pass, that when the virgin ( Rebecca) cometh forth to draw water, and I say to her, Give me, I pray thee, a little water of thy pitcher to drink;

הִנֵּה אָנֹכִי נִצָּב, עַל־עֵין הַמָּיִם; וְהָיָה הָעַלְמָה, הַיֹּצֵאת לִשְׁאֹב, וְאָמַרְתִּי אֵלֶיהָ, הַשְׁקִינִי־נָא מְעַט־מַיִם מִכַּדֵּךְ


Isa. 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

לָכֵן יִתֵּן אֲדֹנָי הוּא, לָכֶם־־אוֹת: הִנֵּה הָעַלְמָה, הָרָה וְיֹלֶדֶת בֵּן, וְקָרָאת שְׁמוֹ, עִמָּנוּ אֵל



Song of Solomon 1:3 Because of the savour of thy good ointments thy name is as ointment poured forth, therefore do the virgins עֲלָמוֹת love th ee.


לְרֵיחַ שְׁמָנֶיךָ טוֹבִים, שֶׁמֶן תּוּרַק שְׁמֶךָ; עַל־כֵּן, עֲלָמוֹת אֲהֵבוּךָ

The Stone TaNaKh says nations ( wrong )

The JPS says maidens ( wrong )

Song of Solomons 6:8 There are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines, and virgins וַעֲלָמוֹת without number.

שִׁשִּׁים הֵמָּה מְלָכוֹת, וּשְׁמֹנִים פִּילַגְשִׁים; וַעֲלָמוֹת, אֵין מִסְפָּר


concubines, not Noahide, not maidens

JBS 6:8 There are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines, and maidens without number ( wrong )

The Stone Edition concubines = Noahides and virgins = nations ( big time WRONG )
