18 Now the {genesis}f of [Jesus]g Christ took place as follows: [[For]]h After his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit.i 19 And Joseph her husband, being a just man and not wanting to {disgrace her},j planned to divorce her secretly.
20 But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.k 21 She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”
22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: 23 “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, with us is God).l
24 When Joseph {woke}m from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, 25 and he did not know her until she gave birth to {a son}n and he called his name Jesus.
