17 All the generations therefore from Abraham till David are fourteen generations, and from David till the Babylon removal fourteen generations, and from the Babylon removal till the Christ fourteen generations.
 
18 †Now the birth of :Jesus Christ was thus: His :mother Mary, betrothed to :Joseph, before they came together, was found with child of the Holy Spirit. 19 And Joseph her :husband being righteous, and not willing to make an example of her, was minded to put her away privily. 20 But as he thought on these things, lo, the Lord’s †angel appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, David’s Son, fear not to take to thee Mary thy :wife: for what is begotten in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 And she shall bear a son, and thou shalt call his :name :JESUS; for †HE shall save his :people from their :sins. 22 Now all this †is come to pass that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet saying,
 
23 Lo, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bear a son, And they shall call his :name Emmanuēl; which being interpreted is, :God with us. 24 And :Joseph arose from his :sleep †and did as the Lord’s angel commanded him, and took to him his :wife, 25 and knew her not till she had borne a son; and he called his :name JESUS.
