17 And so all the generations from Abraham to David be fourteen generations, and from David [till] to the transmigration of Babylon be fourteen generations, and from the transmigration of Babylon to Christ [and from the transmigration of Babylon unto Christ] be fourteen generations. 17 Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Christ.
18 But the generation of Christ was thus. When Mary, the mother of Jesus, was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found having of the Holy Ghost in the womb. [Forsooth the generation of Christ was this. When Mary, his mother, was spoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found having in the womb of the Holy Ghost.] 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 And Joseph, her husband, for he was rightful, and would not publish her, he would privily have left her. [+Joseph, forsooth, her husband, when he was a just man, or rightful, and would not publish her, would privily forsake her.] 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 while he thought these things, lo! the angel of the Lord appeared to him in sleep, and said [lo! the angel of the Lord appeared in sleep, or sweven, to him, saying], Joseph, the son of David, do not thou dread to take Mary, thy wife; for that thing that is born in her is of the Holy Ghost. 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 shall bear a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus; for he shall make his people safe 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 For all this thing was done, that it should be fulfilled, that was said of the Lord by a prophet, saying, 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:
23 Lo! a virgin shall have in [the] womb, and she shall bear a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, that is to say [that is interpreted], 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 rose [up] from sleep, and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary, his wife; [Soothly Joseph rising up from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord bade him, and 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 he knew her not, till she had born her first begotten 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.
