Later Jewish translations of Isaiah into Greek rendered 'almah
by NEANIS, but these happened after this passage had become a
point of controversy between Christians and Jews, so extra-linguistic
considerations may have been at play.
Because the LXX still applied the word PARQENOS to Dinah after
her rape, the PARQENOS need not always mean "virgo intacta."
