11 And Josiah was the father of Jeconiah and his brothers. At that time, the Jewish people were forced to go away to Babylon. 11 and Josiah the father of Jeconiah and his brothers at the time of the exile to Babylon.
12 After this, the family line continued. Jeconiah was the father of Shealtiel. Shealtiel was the father of Zerubbabel. 12 After the exile to Babylon: Jeconiah was the father of Shealtiel, Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel,

16 Jacob was the father of Joseph. Joseph was the husband of Mary. And Mary gave birth to Jesus, who is called Christ. 16 and Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
17 So there were 14 generations from Abraham to David. There were 14 from David until the Jewish people were forced to go away to Babylon. And there were 14 from that time to the Christ. 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 This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about. His mother Mary and Joseph had promised to get married. But before they started to live together, it became clear that she was going to have a baby. She became pregnant by the power of 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 Her husband Joseph was a godly man. He did not want to put her to shame in public. So he planned to divorce her quietly. 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 Joseph was thinking about this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. The angel said, "Joseph, son of David, don't be afraid to take Mary home as your wife. The baby inside 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 She is going to have a son. You must give him the name Jesus. That is 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 All of this took place to bring about what the Lord had said would happen. He had said through the prophet, 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:
23 "The virgin is going to have a baby. She will give birth to a son. And he will be called Immanuel."#1(Isaiah 7:14)#2 The name Immanuel means "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 Joseph woke up. He did what the angel of the Lord commanded him to do. He took Mary home as 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 But he did not make love to her until after she gave birth to a son. And Joseph gave him the name Jesus. 25 But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.
