MT 1:17 All the generations, therefore, from Abraham unto David `are' fourteen generations, and from David unto the Babylonian removal fourteen generations, and from the Babylonian removal unto the Christ, fourteen generations.
MT 1:18 And of Jesus Christ, the birth was thus: For his mother Mary having been betrothed to Joseph, before their coming together she was found to have conceived from the Holy Spirit,
MT 1:19 and Joseph her husband being righteous, and not willing to make her an example, did wish privately to send her away.
MT 1:20 And on his thinking of these things, lo, a messenger of the Lord in a dream appeared to him, saying, `Joseph, son of David, thou mayest not fear to receive Mary thy wife, for that which in her was begotten `is' of the Holy Spirit,
MT 1:21 and she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus, for he shall save his people from their sins.'
MT 1:22 And all this hath come to pass, that it may be fulfilled that was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying,
MT 1:23 `Lo, the virgin shall conceive, and she shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel,' which is, being interpreted `With us `he is' God.'
MT 1:24 And Joseph, having risen from the sleep, did as the messenger of the Lord directed him, and received his wife,
MT 1:25 and did not know her till she brought forth her son -- the first-born, and he called his name Jesus.
