Matthew Chapter 1

1The book of the lineage of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. 2Abraham begot Isaac, and Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot Judah and his brothers, 3and Judah begot Perez and Zarah by Tamar, and Perez begot Hezron, and Hezron begot Ram, 4and Ram begot Amminadab, and Amminadab begot Nahshon, and Nahshon begot Salmon, 5and Salmon begot Boaz by Rahab, and Boaz begot Obed by Ruth, and Obed begot Jesse, 6and Jesse begot David the king, and David the king begot Solomon by Uriah's wife, 7and Solomon begot Rehoboam, and Rehoboam begot Abijah, and Abijah begot Asa, 8and Asa begot Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat begot Jehoram, and Jehoram begot Uzziah, 9and Uzziah begot Jotham, and Jotham begot Ahaz, and Ahaz begot Hezekiah, 10and Hezekiah begot Manasseh, and Manasseh begot Amon, and Amon begot Josiah, 11and Josiah begot Jeconiah and his brothers at the time of the Babylonian deportation. 12And after the Babylonian deportation, Jeconiah begot Shealtiel, and Shealtiel begot Zerubbabel, 13and Zerubbabel begot Abihud, and Abihud begot Eliakim, and Eliakim begot Azzur, 14and Azzur begot Zadok, and Zadok begot Jachin, and Jachin begot Elihud, 15and Elihud begot Eleazar, and Eleazar begot Mattan, and Mattan begot Jacob, 16and Jacob begot Joseph, the husband of Mary, by whom Jesus was conceived, who is called Christ. 17So all the generations from Abraham to David amount to fourteen generations, and from David to the Babylonian deportation there are fourteen generations, and from the Babylonian deportation to Christ there are fourteen generations. 18But the begetting of Jesus Christ was as follows. Now then, when his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found to be with child, by holy spirit. 19But Joseph, her husband-to-be, being righteous, and not wishing to make an example of her, wanted to divorce her secretly. 20But after he had reflected on these things, what should happen but the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary to be your wife, for that which has been conceived in her is so by holy spirit. 21And she shall bear a son, and you will call him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” 22Now all this took place in order that that which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet should be fulfilled, where he says, 23“Behold, a virgin will be with child and will bear a son, and they will call him Emmanuel, which when translated is ‘God with us.’ ” 24So when Joseph had woken up from the sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took his wife, 25but he did not know her until she had borne her firstborn son, and he called him Jesus.
