The Vulgate is almost 600 years older than the Masoretic Text. Do you agree? Irenaeus points out that the Septuagint translators in 285 B.C.
Continued: Thanks to Prof. Joshua Scodel for his help on this issue. So why do modern Catholic translators trust the medieval texts of the Masoretes over the ancient Vulgate and the Septuagint? The Septuagint wasn't written in Hebrew and Aramaic. The Lord is related to have spoken to Ahaz thus: “Ask a sign for thyself from the LORD thy God, either in the depth or height above;” and afterwards the sign is given, “Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son.” What kind of sign, then, would that have been–a young woman who was not a virgin giving birth to a child?

Those are my sentiments too. So, why do modern Catholic translators use the words “young woman”? apparently the vulgates attacked the septuagint over a land formation known as the mount of heavenly odors *this is an english translation there is no word in english for this mountain.
