5 uSalemon wazala uBhohazi ngoRahabhi; uBhohazi wazala uObhede ngoRute; uObhede wazala uYese;

6 uYese wazala uDavide ukumkani. UDavide ke ukumkani wazala uSolomon ngobengumkaUriya;

11 uYosiya wazala uYekoniya nabazalwana bakhe ngexesha lokufuduselwa kwabo eBhabhilon.

18 Ke kaloku ukuzalwa kukaYesu Kristu kwaye kungolu hlobo: Kwathi, akubon’ ukuba unina uMariya useleganelwe uYosefu, bengekahlangani, wafunyanwa emithi ngoMoya oyiNgcwele.

19 Wathi ke uYosefu indoda yakhe, engolilungisa, engathandi ukumhlaza ekuhleni, wanga angamala ngasese.

20 Akubon’ ukuba uyazicinga ezi zinto, naso isithunywa seNkosi sibonakala kuye ephupheni, sisithi, Yosefu, nyana kaDavide, musa ukoyika ukumthabathela kuwe uMariya, umfazi wakho; kuba oko kukhawulweyo phakathi kwakhe kungoMoya oyiNgcwele.

21 Uya kuzala unyana ke, umbize ngegama elinguYesu; kuba yena eya kubasindisa abantu bakhe ezonweni zabo.

22 Ke kaloku oku konke kwenzeke, ukuze kuzaliseke okwathethwayo yiNkosi ngomprofeti, isithi,

23 Yabonani, intombi le iya kumitha izale unyana, Bambize ngegama elinguImanuweli, oko kukuthi ngentetho evakalayo, uThixo unathi.

24 Wathi ke uYosefu, evukile ebuthongweni, wenza ngoko besimmisele ngako isithunywa seNkosi, wamthabathela kuye umfazi wakhe;

25 waza ke akamazi, wada wazala unyana wakhe wamazibulo; wambiza ke ngegama elinguYesu.
