NKJVNew King James Version
18Now the #Matt. 12:46; Luke 1:27birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child #Is. 7:14; 49:5; Luke 1:35of the Holy Spirit. 19Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting #Deut. 24:1; John 8:4, 5to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. 20But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, #Luke 1:35for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21#(Is. 7:14; 9:6, 7); Luke 1:31; 2:21And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, #Luke 2:11; John 1:29; (Acts 4:12; 5:31; 13:23, 38; Rom. 5:18, 19; Col. 1:20–23)for He will save His people from their sins.”
22So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 23#Is. 7:14“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”
