1:17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; from David to the exile to Babylon fourteen generations; and from the carrying away to Babylon to the Christ, fourteen generations.
1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was like this; for after his mother, Mary, was engaged to Joseph, before they came together, she was found pregnant by the Holy Spirit.
1:19 Joseph, her husband, being a righteous man, and not willing to make her a public example, intended to put her away secretly.
1:20 But when he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, don't be afraid to take to yourself Mary, your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.
1:21 She shall bring forth a son. You shall call his name Jesus, for it is he who shall save his people from their sins."
1:22 Now all this has happened, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying,
1:23 "Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son. They shall call his name Immanuel"; which is, being interpreted, "God with us." {Isaiah 7:14}
1:24 Joseph arose from his sleep, and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took his wife to himself;
1:25 and didn't know her sexually until she had brought forth her firstborn son. He named him Jesus.
