耶稣的降生

18 以下是耶稣基督降生的经过。

耶稣的母亲玛丽亚和约瑟订了婚,还没有成亲就从圣灵怀了孕。 19 约瑟是个义人,不愿公开地羞辱她,便决定暗中和她解除婚约。 20 他正在考虑这事的时候,主的一位天使在梦中向他显现,说:“大卫的后裔约瑟,不要怕,把玛丽亚娶过来,因为她所怀的孕是从圣灵来的。 21 她将生一个儿子,你要给祂取名叫耶稣[c],因为祂要把自己的子民从罪恶中救出来。”

22 这一切应验了主借着先知所说的话: 23 “必有童贞女怀孕生子,祂的名字要叫以马内利,意思是‘上帝与我们同在’。” 24 约瑟醒来,就遵从主的天使的吩咐和玛丽亚结婚, 25 只是在她生下孩子之前没有与她同房。约瑟给孩子取名叫耶稣。

Rehoboam was the father of Abijah.
Abijah was the father of Asa.[c]

12 After the Babylonian exile:
Jehoiachin was the father of Shealtiel.
Shealtiel was the father of Zerubbabel.
13 Zerubbabel was the father of Abiud.
Abiud was the father of Eliakim.
Eliakim was the father of Azor.
14 Azor was the father of Zadok.

Mary gave birth to Jesus, who is called the Messiah.

17 All those listed above include fourteen generations from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the Babylonian exile, and fourteen from the Babylonian exile to the Messiah.

The Birth of Jesus the Messiah

18 This is how Jesus the Messiah was born. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. But before the marriage took place, while she was still a virgin, she became pregnant through the power of the Holy Spirit. 19 Joseph, to whom she was engaged, was a righteous man and did not want to disgrace her publicly, so he decided to break the engagement[h] quietly.

20 As he considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. “Joseph, son of David,” the angel said, “do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. For the child within her was conceived by the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus,[i] for he will save his people from their sins.”

22 All of this occurred to fulfill the Lord’s message through his prophet:

23 “Look! The virgin will conceive a child!
    She will give birth to a son,
and they will call him Immanuel,[j]
    which means ‘God is with us.’”

24 When Joseph woke up, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded and took Mary as his wife. 25 But he did not have sexual relations with her until her son was born. And Joseph named him Jesus.
