THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

Notes on Book of Judges (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

11:37 Bewail my virginity: The bearing of children was much coveted under the Old Testament, when women might hope that from some child of theirs, the Saviour of the world might one day spring. But under the New Testament virginity is preferred. 1 Cor. 7.35.
