18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ occurred in this way. His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, [but] before they came together, she was found {to be pregnant} by the Holy Spirit. 18 This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit.
19 So Joseph her husband, being righteous and not wanting to disgrace her, intended to divorce her secretly. 19 Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.
20 But [as] he was considering these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary [as] your wife, for what has been conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.
21 And she will give birth to a son, and you will call his name 'Jesus,' because he will save his people from their sins." 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins."
22 Now all this happened in order that what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet would be fulfilled, saying, 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:
23 "Behold, the virgin {will become pregnant} and will give birth to a son, and they will call his name Emmanuel," which is translated, "God with us." 23 "The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel"--which means, "God with us."
24 And Joseph, [when he] woke up from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and he took his wife 24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.
25 and {did not have sexual relations with} her until she gave birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus. 25 But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.
