Ingilosi yathi kuye: “Josefa, ndodana kaDavida, ungesabi ukuthatha umkakho uMariya uhambe laye ngekhaya ngoba kwenziwe ngomoya ongcwele+ ukuthi azithwale. 21  Yena uzabeletha indodana futhi kumele uyiphe ibizo elithi Jesu,*+ ngoba izasindisa abantu ezonweni zabo.”+ 22  Konke lokhu kwenzakala sibili ukuze kugcwaliseke lokho okwakukhulunywe nguJehova* esebenzisa umphrofethi wakhe owathi: 23  “Intombi egcweleyo izazithwala ibelethe indodana. Indodana leyo izanikwa ibizo elithi Imanuweli.”+ Ibizo leli litsho ukuthi, “UNkulunkulu ulathi.”+ 24  Ngemva kwalokho, uJosefa wavuka ebuthongweni wasesenza lokho ingilosi kaJehova* eyayimtshele khona, wathatha umkakhe wahamba laye emzini wakhe.* 25  Kodwa kazange aye laye emacansini waze wabeletha indodana+ njalo wayipha ibizo elithi Jesu.+
