Thanks for allowing my letters.
The Hebrew is the oldest known language in existence, the Vulgate was the translation from the Greek into Latin.The Greeks and Romans destroyed all the original scripture they could and made the penalty death if any Hebrew was found with any in his home or in his possession, according to Bible Dictionaries.
At the word girl in the Webster’s New College Two Dictionary it states that in Middle English, girl is the ordinary word denoting a female child. In Middle English times, however, from the 13th to 15th century, girl indicated a child or youth of either sex.
Nothing is known of the history of girl before it appeared in English and it appears that no related forms exist in any other language (Jesus also appeared in the Middle Ages). This is on page 472 of the College Two Dictionary.
So my question to the pastors is: how does boy and girl appear in the old testament in the King James which is supposed to be the infallible book?
The word boy nor girl did not exist then — how does girl appear in Joel Chapter 3-3?
Now we know why, when the scriptures state to bring up a child in the way they should go and they will not depart from it, child can mean boy or girl. The Messiah used the word children mostly, either sex.
In the World Book Encyclopedia at the letter “j” are the words Medieval Scribes. This is the period that the letter “j” came into existence, during the Middle Ages. At the letter “l” it states: Roman -100 A.D., and this is the centuries that the word lesous was being used instead of the Hebrew Yahwey or Yahusha.
