16 And Iacob begat Ioseph ye husbad of Mary, of whom was borne Iesvs, that is called Christ.
17 All the generations, therefore, from Abraham to David [were] fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away of Babylon, fourteen generations; and from the carrying away of Babylon unto the Christ, fourteen generations.
18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was thus: His mother, Mary, that is, having been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found to be with child of [the] Holy Spirit.
19 Then Ioseph her husbande being a iust man, and not willing to make her a publike example, was minded to put her away secretly.
20 but while he pondered on 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 begotten in her is of [the] Holy Spirit.
21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
22 And al this was done that it might be fulfilled, which is spoken of the Lord by ye Prophet, saying,
23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
24 Then Ioseph, being raised from sleepe, did as the Angel of the Lorde had inioyned him, and tooke his wife.
25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
