Therefore this is what Yahweh says:
Ask now among the nations,
who has heard such things?
The Virgin, Israel, has done a very horrible thing. Bible

“Virgin, Israel.” The Hebrew reads, “the virgin of Israel,” but the genitive is appositional. The translation could be something such as, “the Virgin, namely Israel,” or “the Virgin, that is to say, Israel.” But simply saying, “The Virgin Israel” gets the sense well.
