Matthew 1:18-25New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

The Birth of Jesus the Messiah

18 Now the birth of Jesus the Messiah[a] took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been engaged to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. 19 Her husband Joseph, being a righteous man and unwilling to expose her to public disgrace, planned to dismiss her quietly. 20 But just when he had resolved to do 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 as your wife, for the child conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” 22 All this took place to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet:

23 “Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
    and they shall name him Emmanuel,”

which means, “God is with us.” 24 When Joseph awoke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him; he took her as his wife, 25 but had no marital relations with her until she had borne a son;[b] and he named him Jesus.

Matthaeus 1:18-25Biblia Sacra Vulgata (VULGATE)

18 Christi autem generatio sic erat cum esset desponsata mater eius Maria Ioseph antequam convenirent inventa est in utero habens de Spiritu Sancto

19 Ioseph autem vir eius cum esset iustus et nollet eam traducere voluit occulte dimittere eam

20 haec autem eo cogitante ecce angelus Domini in somnis apparuit ei dicens Ioseph fili David noli timere accipere Mariam coniugem tuam quod enim in ea natum est de Spiritu Sancto est

21 pariet autem filium et vocabis nomen eius Iesum ipse enim salvum faciet populum suum a peccatis eorum

22 hoc autem totum factum est ut adimpleretur id quod dictum est a Domino per prophetam dicentem

23 ecce virgo in utero habebit et pariet filium et vocabunt nomen eius Emmanuhel quod est interpretatum Nobiscum Deus

24 exsurgens autem Ioseph a somno fecit sicut praecepit ei angelus Domini et accepit coniugem suam

25 et non cognoscebat eam donec peperit filium suum primogenitum et vocavit nomen eius Iesum
