Matthew 1:18-25

18 And the birth of Jesus Christ was in·​·this·​·way: His mother Mary, being betrothed to Joseph, before they came·​·together, was found with child from the Holy Spirit.
19 And Joseph her husband, being just, and not willing to expose· her ·to·​·public·​·infamy, intended to send· her ·away privately.
20 And while he thought on these·​·things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, son of David, fear not to take·​·to·​·thee Mary thy wife, for that which is begotten in her is from the Holy Spirit.
21 And she shall bring·​·forth a Son, and thou shalt call His name Jesus1; for He shall save His people from their sins.
22 And all this was·​·done, that it might be fulfilled which was declared by the Lord through the prophet, saying,
23 Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bring·​·forth a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel, which is, being translated, God with us.2
24 And Joseph, being·​·awakened from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had directed him, and took·​·to·​·him his wife,
25 and knew her not, until she brought·​·forth her firstborn Son; and he called His name Jesus.
