And David became the father of Solomon by the wife ▼
▼ The word “wife” is not in the Greek text, but is implied idiomaticallyof Uriah, 7 and Solomon became the father of Rehoboam, and Rehoboam became the father of Abijah, and Abijah became the father of Asa, ▼ 8 and Asa became the father of Jehoshaphat, ▼
▼ Greek “Josaphat”; alternately spelled “Jehoshaphat” in many English versionsand Jehoshaphat became the father of Joram, and Joram became the father of Uzziah, 9 and Uzziah became the father of Jotham, and Jotham became the father of Ahaz, and Ahaz became the father of Hezekiah, 10 and Hezekiah became the father of Manasseh, and Manasseh became the father of Amon, ▼ and Amon became the father of Josiah, 11 and Josiah became the father of Jechoniah and his brothers, at the time of the deportation to Babylon.
12 And after the deportation to Babylon, Jechoniah became the father of Shealtiel, ▼ and Shealtiel became the father of Zerubbabel, 13 and Zerubbabel became the father of Abiud, and Abiud became the father of Eliakim, and Eliakim became the father of Azor, 14 and Azor became the father of Zadok, and Zadok became the father of Achim, and Achim became the father of Eliud, 15 and Eliud became the father of Eleazar, and Eleazar became the father of Matthan, and Matthan became the father of Jacob, 16 and Jacob became the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary by whom ▼

17 Therefore all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, and from David to the deportation to Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the deportation to Babylon to the Christ are fourteen generations.
The Birth of Jesus ChristNow the birth of Jesus Christ occurred in this way. His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found ˻to be pregnant˼ ▼
▼ Literally “to have in the womb”by the Holy Spirit. 19 So Joseph her husband, being righteous and not wanting to disgrace her, intended to divorce her secretly. 20 But as ▼
▼ Here “ as” is supplied as a component of the temporal genitive absolute participle (“considering”)he was considering these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for what has been conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will give birth to a son, and you will call his name ‘Jesus,’ because he will save his people from their sins.” 22 Now all this happened in order that what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet would be fulfilled, saying,
23 “Behold, the virgin ˻will become pregnant˼ ▼
▼ Literally “will have in the womb”and will give birth to a son,
and they will call his name Emmanuel,” ▼
which is translated, “God with us.” ▼ 24 And Joseph, when he ▼
▼ Here “when” is supplied as a component of the participle (“woke up”) which is understood as temporalwoke up from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and he took his wife 25 and ˻did not have sexual relations with˼ ▼
▼ Literally “did not know”her until she gave birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus.
