18 ¶ Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
18 ¶ Christi autem generatio sic erat: cum esset desponsata mater ejus Maria Joseph, antequam convenirent inventa est in utero habens de Spiritu Sancto.
19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.
19 Joseph autem vir ejus cum esset justus, et nollet eam traducere, voluit occulte dimittere eam.
20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
20 Hæc autem eo cogitante, ecce angelus Domini apparuit in somnis ei, dicens: Joseph, fili David, noli timere accipere Mariam conjugem tuam: quod enim in ea natum est, de Spiritu Sancto est.
21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
21 Pariet autem filium: et vocabis nomen ejus Jesum: ipse enim salvum faciet populum suum a peccatis eorum.
22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
22 Hoc autem totum factum est, ut adimpleretur quod dictum est a Domino per prophetam dicentem:
23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
23 Ecce virgo in utero habebit, et pariet filium: et vocabunt nomen ejus Emmanuel, quod est interpretatum Nobiscum Deus.
24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:
24 Exsurgens autem Joseph a somno, fecit sicut præcepit ei angelus Domini, et accepit conjugem suam.
25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn
ℵB ⟨a⟩son: and he called his name JESUS.
25 Et non cognoscebat eam donec peperit filium suum primogenitum: et vocavit nomen ejus Jesum.
