Greek τὰ ἴδια. The Own Selves. Definite article and plural. If translated "his own" or something similar, the plural is lost. If translated "the own ones" or "the Own Selves" we are much more true to the grammar.

ἴδιος idios 1. pertaining to oneself, one's own; used a. universally, of what is one's own as opposed to belonging to another. As in “the belonging” or “possession”. An adjective + definite article. See Strong’s #G2398, one’s own, belonging to one, what is one’s own.

Strong’s #G3880, paralambanó. To receive from, take. “Himself” is the accusative object. This term is indicative of taking possession,

“Lest you be fearing to take [paralambanó] Mary the woman of yourself.” Matthew 1:20 literal
