Conception and Birth of Jesus

18 Now the birth of Jesus 1Christ was as follows: when His amother Mary had been 2betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was bfound to be with child by the Holy Spirit.

19 And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man and not wanting to disgrace her, planned 1ato send her away secretly.

20 But when he had considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “aJoseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for 1the Child who has been 2conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.

21 “She will bear a Son; and ayou shall call His name Jesus, for 1He bwill save His people from their sins.”

22 Now all this 1took place to fulfill what was aspoken by the Lord through the prophet:

23 “aBehold, the virgin shall be with bchild and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name 1Immanuel,” which translated means, “cGod with us.”

24 And Joseph 1awoke from his sleep and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary as his wife,

25 1but kept her a virgin until she agave birth to a Son; and bhe called His name Jesus.
