What does the psalmist mean by “It is you who brought me forth from the womb” (Psalm 22:9)

“Heed well the expression: “You brought me forth from the womb.” It means that he was conceived and brought forth from the Virgin’s womb without the involvement of man. It is different when one is begotten according to the laws of marriage.!”

Cyril of Jerusalem, Catecheses 12, 1; PG 33, 725 A.
