The Birth of Jesus

(Isaiah 7:10-16; Micah 5:1-6; Luke 2:1-7)

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
18This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit.18Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit.18Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: when His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit.18Now 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.18The birth of Jesus Christ came about this way: After His mother Mary had been engaged to Joseph, it was discovered before they came together that she was pregnant by the Holy Spirit.
19Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.19And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly.19And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man and not wanting to disgrace her, planned to send her away secretly.19Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.19So her husband Joseph, being a righteous man, and not wanting to disgrace her publicly, decided to divorce her secretly.
20But after he had considered 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 home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.20But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.20But when he had considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.20But 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.20But after he had considered these things, an angel of the Lord suddenly appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, don't be afraid to take Mary as your wife, because what has been conceived in her is by the Holy Spirit.
21She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins."21She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”21"She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins."21And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.21She will give birth to a son, and you are to name Him Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins."

22All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:22All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:22Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet:22Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,22Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet:
23"The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel" (which means "God with us").23“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us).23"BEHOLD, THE VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD AND SHALL BEAR A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL," which translated means, "GOD WITH US."23Behold, 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.23See, the virgin will become pregnant and give birth to a son, and they will name Him Immanuel, which is translated "God is with us."
24When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.24When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife,24And Joseph awoke from his sleep and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary as his wife,24Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:24When Joseph got up from sleeping, he did as the Lord's angel had commanded him. He married her
25But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.25but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus.25but kept her a virgin until she gave birth to a Son; and he called His name Jesus.25And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.25but did not know her intimately until she gave birth to a son. And he named Him Jesus.
