Dispela mak i olsem. Wanpela yangpela meri i gat bel, na bai em i karim wanpela pikinini man na kolim nem bilong en Emanuel.” (Aisaia 7:14)

“O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” is a song for Advent. “Emmanuel” is one of the names the prophet Isaiah gave to Jesus: “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14)

Long tok Hibru, nem Emanuel i wankain olsem dispela tok, “God i stap wantaim yumi.” Matyu i tok olsem: “Dispela olgeta samting i kamap bilong inapim wanpela tok Bikpela i bin mekim long maus bilong profet. Profet i bin tok olsem,  ‘Harim. Wanpela meri i no bin slip wantaim man, em bai i gat bel na i karim wanpela pikinini man. Na bai ol i kolim nem bilong en Emanuel.’ As bilong dispela nem i olsem, God i stap wantaim yumi.” (Matyu 1:22-23)

In Hebrew, the name “Emmanuel” means “God is with us.” Matthew says the same thing: “All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: ‘Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel’ (which means, God with us).” (Matthew 1:22-23)
