18 *uNow the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child wof the Holy Ghost. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a xjust man, and not willing yto make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. 20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him zin a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is †conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. 21 aAnd she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name ||JESUS: for bhe shall save his people cfrom their sins.
