(בַּתוּלַים, bethulim, masc. plur. of בְּתוּלָה, a virgin; Sept. τὰ παρθένεια ; Vulg. signa virginitatis; Deuteronomy 22:14-15; Deuteronomy 22:17; Deuteronomy 22:20; elsewhere "virginity" simply). The Mosaic laws concerning "virginity" are recorded in Deuteronomy 22:13-29; comp. Matthew 1:18-20. The proofs of maidenhood there referred to are thought to have been the bed clothing stained with blood on the wedding-night. (See MARRIAGE).
