18 Ukuzalwa kukaJesu Kristu kwaba nje: unina uMariya esemiselwe uJosefa, bengakahlangani wafunyanwa ekhulelwe ngoMoya oNgcwele.
19 Kepha uJosefa indoda yakhe engumuntu olungileyo, engathandi ukumthela ihlazo, wayefuna ukumlahla ngasese.
20 Esazindla ngalokho, bheka, ingelosi yeNkosi yabonakala kuye ngephupho, ithi: “Josefa, ndodana kaDavide, ungesabi ukumthatha uMariya umkakho, ngokuba lokho akukhulelweyo kungoMoya oNgcwele.
21 Uzakuzala indodana, uyiqambe igama lokuthi uJesu, ngokuba nguye oyakusindisa abantu bakhe ezonweni zabo.”
22 Lokhu konke kwenzeka ukuba kugcwaliseke okwakhulunywa yiNkosi ngomprofethi ukuthi:
23 “Bheka, intombi iyakukhulelwa, izale indodana; bayakuyiqamba igama lokuthi u-Emanuweli,” okungukuthi ngokuhunyushwa “uNkulunkulu unathi”.
24 UJosefa esevukile ebuthongweni wenza njengalokho imyalile ingelosi yeNkosi, wamthatha umkakhe;
25 akaze aya kuye, waze wazibula ngendodana; wayiqamba igama lokuthi uJesu.
