1This is the genealogy1:1 Or is an account of the origin of Jesus the Messiah1:1 Or Jesus Christ. Messiah (Hebrew) and Christ (Greek) both mean Anointed One; also in verse 18. the son of David, the son of Abraham:

Joseph Accepts Jesus as His Son
18This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about1:18 Or The origin of Jesus the Messiah was like this: 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. 19Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet1:19 Or was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.
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. 21She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,1:21 Jesus is the Greek form of Joshua, which means the Lord saves. because he will save his people from their sins.”
22All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”1:23 Isaiah 7:14 (which means “God with us”).
24When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

Anděl se zjevuje Josefovi
18S narozením Ježíše Krista to bylo takto: Ježíšova matka Marie byla zasnoubena s Josefem. Dříve, než se vzali, se však ukázalo, že bude matkou. 19Josef byl ohleduplný muž a nechtěl Marii vystavit veřejné hanbě, proto se rozhodl, že se s ní rozejde. 20Když o tom uvažoval, ukázal se mu ve snu Boží posel a řekl: „Josefe, Davidův synu, neboj se vzít si Marii. Co v ní bylo počato, je z Ducha svatého. 21Porodí syna a dáš mu jméno Ježíš. On vysvobodí svůj lid z moci zla. 22Těmito událostmi se splní předpověď proroka Izajáše: 23‚Slyšte! Panna bude těhotná a porodí syna. Budete mu říkat Immanuel, to znamená: Bůh je s námi.‘ “
24Když se Josef probudil, udělal vše tak, jak mu přikázal Boží posel, a oženil se s Marií. 25Ale nežil s ní manželsky až do doby, kdy se jí narodil syn, kterému dal jméno Ježíš.
