17So there were 14 generations from Abraham to David. There were 14 from David until the Jewish people were forced to go away to Babylon. And there were 14 from that time to the Messiah.
Joseph Accepts Jesus as His Son
18This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about. His mother Mary and Joseph had promised to get married. But before they started to live together, it became clear that she was going to have a baby. She became pregnant by the power of the Holy Spirit. 19Her husband Joseph was faithful to the law. But he did not want to put her to shame in public. So he planned to divorce her quietly.
20But as Joseph was thinking about this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. The angel said, “Joseph, son of David, don’t be afraid to take Mary home as your wife. The baby inside her is from the Holy Spirit. 21She is going to have a son. You must give him the name Jesus. That’s because he will save his people from their sins.”
22All this took place to bring about what the Lord had said would happen. He had said through the prophet, 23“The virgin is going to have a baby. She will give birth to a son. And he will be called Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14) The name Immanuel means “God with us.”
24Joseph woke up. He did what the angel of the Lord commanded him to do. He took Mary home as his wife. 25But he did not sleep with her until she gave birth to a son. And Joseph gave him the name Jesus.

2Si Abraham amay ni Isaac, si Isaac amay ni Jacob, kag si Jacob amay ni Juda kag sang iya mga utod nga lalaki. 3Si Juda amay ni Perez kag ni Zera, kag si Tamar ang ila iloy. Si Perez amay ni Hezron, kag si Hezron amay ni Ram.1:3 Ram: Amo ini sa Hebreo. Sa Griego, Aram. 4Si Ram amay ni Aminadab, si Aminadab amay ni Nashon, kag si Nashon amay ni Salmon. 5Si Salmon amay ni Boaz, kag si Rahab ang iya iloy. Si Boaz amay ni Obed, kag si Ruth ang iya iloy. Si Obed amay ni Jesse, 6kag si Jesse amay ni Haring David.
Si Haring David amay ni Solomon kag ang iya iloy asawa anay ni Uria. 7Si Solomon amay ni Rehoboam, si Rehoboam amay ni Abia, kag si Abia amay ni Asa. 8Si Asa amay ni Jehoshafat, si Jehoshafat amay ni Joram, kag si Joram amay ni Uzia. 9Si Uzia amay ni Jotam, si Jotam amay ni Ahaz, kag si Ahaz amay ni Hezekia. 10Si Hezekia amay ni Manase, si Manase amay ni Amos,1:10 Amos: ukon, Amon. si Amos amay ni Josia, 11kag si Josia amay ni Jeconia1:11 Jeconia: ukon, Jehoyakin. kag sang iya mga utod nga lalaki.

Kag may 14 man ka henerasyon halin kay David hasta sa pagbihag sa mga taga-Israel pa-Babilonia. Halin sa pagbihag pa-Babilonia may 14 pa gid ka henerasyon hasta kay Cristo.
Ang Pagkatawo ni Cristo
18Amo ini ang estorya sang pagkatawo ni Jesu-Cristo: Si Maria nga iya iloy kalaslon na kay Jose. Pero sa wala pa sila mag-upod nasapwan ni Maria nga nagabusong na siya paagi sa Espiritu Santo. 19Karon, si Jose nga mangin iya bana isa ka matarong nga tawo kag indi siya luyag nga mahuy-an si Maria sa mga tawo. Gani ginpakamaayo niya nga bulagan si Maria sa tago lang. 20Samtang ginahunahuna ni Jose ang iya himuon, nagpakita sa iya sa damgo ang anghel sang Ginoo nga nagasiling, “Jose, kaliwat ni David, indi ka magkahadlok nga magpangasawa kay Maria, kay nagabusong siya paagi sa Espiritu Santo. 21Magabata siya sing lalaki kag ngalanan mo ang bata nga Jesus,1:21 Jesus: buot silingon sang sini nga ngalan sa Hebreo, Nagaluwas ang Ginoo. kay luwason niya ang iya katawhan sa ila mga sala.” 22Natabo ini agod matuman ang ginsiling sang Ginoo paagi sa propeta nga nagsiling, 23“Magabusong ang isa ka birhen kag magabata sing lalaki. Kag pagatawgon ang ini nga bata nga Emmanuel”1:23 Isa. 7:14. (nga kon sayuron, “Ang Dios kaupod naton”). 24Gani pagbugtaw ni Jose gintuman niya ang ginsiling sang anghel sang Ginoo, kag ginpangasawa niya si Maria. 25Pero wala niya gintandog si Maria samtang wala pa ini makabata. Sang nakabata na si Maria, gin-ngalanan ni Jose ang bata nga Jesus.
