New American Standard (NAS) New International Version (NIV)
18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows : when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child 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 And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man and not wanting to disgrace her, planned to send her away 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 when he had considered this, 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 the Child who has been conceived in her is of 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 will bear a Son ; and you shall call His name Jesus, for 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 took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet : 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:
23 "BEHOLD, THE VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD AND SHALL BEAR A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL," which translated 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 And Joseph awoke from his sleep and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary 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 kept her a virgin 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.
