16Jacob begat Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, that is called Christ.
17And so all the generations from Abraham to David be fourteen generations, and from David to the transmigration of Babylon be fourteen generations, and from the trans-migration of Babylon to Christ be fourteen generations.
18But the generation of Christ was thus. When Mary, the mother of Jesus, was espoused to Joseph, before that they came together, she was found having of the Holy Ghost in the womb.
19And Joseph, her husband, for he was rightful [or a just man], and would not publish her, he would privily have left her.
20But while he thought these things, lo! the angel of the Lord appeared to him in sleep, and said, Joseph, the son of David, do not thou dread to take Mary, thy wife; for that thing that is born in her is of the Holy Ghost.
21And she shall bear a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus; for he shall make his people safe from their sins.
22For all this thing was done, that it should be fulfilled, that was said of the Lord by a prophet, saying,
23Lo! a virgin shall have in [the] womb, and she shall bear a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, that is to say, God with us.
24And Joseph rose [up] from sleep, and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary, his wife;
25and he knew her not, till she had born her first begotten son, and he called his name Jesus.
