10And the Lord spoke again to Achaz, saying:11Ask thee a sign of the Lord thy God, either unto the depth of hell, or unto the height above.12And Achaz said: I will not ask, and I will not tempt the Lord.13And he said: Hear ye therefore, O house of David: Is it a small thing for you to be grievous to men, that you are grievous to my God also?14Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign. Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son and his name shall be called Emmanuel.
1Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God.2Which he had promised before, by his prophets, in the holy scriptures,3Concerning his Son, who was made to him of the seed of David, according to the flesh,4Who was predestinated the Son of God in power, according to the spirit of sanctification, by the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ from the dead:5By whom we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith, in all nations, for his name:6Among whom are you also the called of Jesus Christ:7To all that are at Rome, the beloved of God, called to be saints. Grace to you and peace, from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
18Now the generation of Christ was in this wise. When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child, of the Holy Ghost.19Whereupon Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing publicly to expose her, was minded to put her away privately.20But while he thought on these things, behold the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in his sleep, saying: Joseph, son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife, for that which is conceived in her, is of the Holy Ghost.21And she shall bring forth a son: and thou shalt call his name Jesus. For he shall save his people from their sins.22Now all this was done that it might be fulfilled which the Lord spoke by the prophet, saying:23Behold a virgin shall be with child, and bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.24And Joseph rising up from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him, and took unto him his wife.
