In 1st Corinthians 14:21, Paul quotes Isaiah 28:11 and refers to it as 'The law' This widens the concept of just what the law is. I think that the same thing happens in Romans 3:19. One thing that we can know is this; Jesus did not make a mistake when He referred to the Psalms as the law...this tells me that we are safe to expand our concept of the term....

The reason that the translations are all over the map is: Some Hebrew manuscripts connect the first word of the following verse with the last word of Psalm 42:5, yielding the phrase "My ever-present help, my God" The meaning of the Hebrew of Psalm 42:11 is uncertain.

(Psalm 2:7 KJV) The most common meaning of the verb יָלַד is to father or to give birth. There are other uses which do not involve child birth: Joseph saw Ephraim’s children to the third generation. The children of Machir, the son of ...

Virgin Birth?
