[Meaning] in so much, in what [time].[1]
We often find this first e(/ws in the Scripture and used in reference to continuity; as in "while I make your enemies a footstool for your feet."[2] It is continuous. Also, "the dove did not return to Noah before the earth was dried up."[3] In the end, it did not return. Also, "'while you grow old, I am,' says God."[4] It also is continuous. And many other such [instances] are found scattered in the divine Scripture. Thus also you must understand what is said in the divine prophecies: "before she bore her son".[5] Not as if after this (as the Jews who lack grace blasphemously assert) intercourse had occurred between the betrothed man and the virgin.
