18The birth of Yeshua The Messiah was thus: when Maryam his mother was engaged to Yoseph before they would have a conjugal relation she was found pregnant from The Spirit of Holiness. 19But Yoseph her lord was righteous and did not want to expose her, and he was considering divorcing her secretly. 20But as he considered these things, The Angel of THE LORD JEHOVAH appeared to him in a dream and said unto him, "Yoseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Maryam your woman, for he who is begotten in her is from The Spirit of Holiness." 21"And she shall bring forth a Son, and she shall call his name Yeshua, for he shall save his people from their sins." 22Now all this happened, that the thing which was spoken from THE LORD JEHOVAH by the Prophet would be fulfilled: 23"Behold the virgin shall conceive, and she shall bear a son, and they shall call* his Name Emmanuail, which is translated, 'Our God is with us' ". 24And when Yoseph arose from his sleep, he did according to that which The Angel of THE LORD JEHOVAH had commanded him, and he took his wife. 25And he did not know her sexually until she delivered her firstborn son, and she called his name Yeshua.
