Catholic bible replaces "virgin" with "young woman"

Post  Catholic_Truth on Thu Mar 10, 2011 7:31 pm

New American Bible Revised Edition: ‘young woman’ replaces ‘virgin’ in Isaiah's prophecy

almah-- the Hebrew word rendered as “virgin” in the translation of Isaiah 7:14 (“the virgin shall be with child, and bear a son, and shall name him Immanuel”), will be rendered as “young woman.”

Is this not Judaism taking place in a Catholic Bible ? What are your thoughts on this ?

Not much point in having a revised edition if you ain't gonna revise anything.
If "young woman" is meant to be synonymous with "virgin," I'm afraid not so in todays world.
Watch out for the revised "revised edition."

I usually check how good ( Catholic) a Bible is by Marian scriptures. like "Hail full of grace"...

It is a shame there such confusion in translations.

I'll use this opportunity to make a statement about "traditional" Catholicism, and what it means.

I guess I would describe myself as a "traditional" Catholic because I don't like change. Change, to me, in liturgical matters or the form of worship, in the translations of the scripture, etc., is often informed by prudential judgments as to what's best for the times, and all kinds of considerations creep into such judgments, too often worldly and "political" considerations. A side effect of that is that it makes the faith appear like a fashion that can be changed, like the clothes one wears.

We should always bow and bend to the Almighty. We do so when we submit to traditions that were handed down to us, and accept traditional forms. A side effect of that is that it accentuates that the faith is eternal and unchanging.

When we change things, we somehow lower the Almighty and the faith to our control. The idea of doing so is very offensive to me, and bespeaks modernism.

Sorry for the digression.

Why change "virgin" to "young woman?" A more "exact" translation? Spare me.

It stinks, and I don't like how it infringes on the dignity, blessedness and singularity of our Blessed Mother.
