Mat 1:17 All the generations therefore, from Abraham to David, are fourteen generations; and from David to the Babylonian exile, fourteen generations; and from the Babylonian exile to the Christ, fourteen generations.
Mat 1:18 The birth of Christ was thus. His mother Mary having been espoused to Joseph, before they came together, was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit.
Mat 1:19 But Joseph her husband being a righteous man, and not wishing to make her an example, was designing to put her away privately.
Mat 1:20 But while he was thinking of these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, son of David, fear not to take Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is by the Holy Spirit,
Mat 1:21 and she shall bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he shall save his people from their sins.
Mat 1:22 But all this was done, that the word of the Lord might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying;
Mat 1:23 Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bear a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel; which is interpreted, God is with us.
Mat 1:24 And when Joseph awoke from his sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him, and took his wife,
Mat 1:25 and knew her not till she bore a son, and he called his name Jesus.
