Mat 1:17 So all the generations from Abraham till David, are fourteen generations; and from David till the removal to Babylon, are fourteen generations; and from the removal to Babylon till Christ, are fourteen generations.
Mat 1:18 But the birth of Jesus Christ was thus: After his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.
Mat 1:19 And Joseph her husband, being just and not willing to make her an example, intended to put her away privately.
Mat 1:20 But while he thought of these things, behold, an 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 conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.
Mat 1:21 And she shall bear a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus; for he shall save his people from their sins.
Mat 1:22 And all this was done, that it might be fulfilled that was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying:
Mat 1:23 Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel, which is, when translated, God with us.
Mat 1:24 (1:24a) And Joseph arose from his sleep, and did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him, and took to him his wife;
Mat 1:25 (1:24b) and knew her not till she had brought forth a son; and he called his name Jesus.
