The Nativity of Jesus Christ

18And the [2of Jesus 3Christ 1nativity] was thus. [4being espoused 1For 2his mother 3Mary] to Joseph, before their coming together, was found [2in 3the womb 1having one] of [2spirit 1holy]. 19And Joseph her husband, being righteous, and not wanting to make her an example, willed in private to dismiss her. 20[4these things 1And 2of his 3pondering], behold, an angel of the Lord by dream appeared to him, saying, Joseph son of David, you should not fear to take to yourself Mary your wife; for the one in her [2engendered 3of 5spirit 1is 4holy]. 21And she shall bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he shall deliver his people from their sins. 22And this completely happened that should be fulfilled the thing having been spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, 23Behold, the virgin [2in 3the womb 1has one], and she shall birth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel; which is being translated, [2with 3us 1God]. 24[3having been awakened 1And 2Joseph] from the sleep did as [4assigned 5to him 1the 2angel 3of the Lord], and he took to himself his wife. 25And [3not 1he knew 2her] until of which time she bore [3son 1her 2first-born]. And he called his name Jesus.
