18 The birth of Jesus Christ came about this way: After his mother Mary had been engagedF to Joseph, it was discovered before they came together that she was pregnant from the Holy Spirit.o 19 So her husband Joseph, being a righteous man,p and not wanting to disgrace her publicly, decided to divorce her secretly.q
20 But after he had considered these things, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, don’t be afraid to take Mary as your wife, because what has been conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.r 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to name him Jesus,s because he will save his people from their sins.”t
and give birth to a son,
and they will name him Immanuel,G
which is translated “God is with us.”u
