Matthew 1

The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judah and his brethren; And Judah begat Pharez and Zarah of Tamar; and Pharez begat Hezron; and Hezron begat Ram; And Ram begat Amminadab; and Amminadab begat Nahshon; and Nahshon begat Salmon; And Salmon begat Boaz of Rahab; and Boaz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse; And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Uriah; And Solomon begat Rehoboam; and Rehoboam begat Abijah; and Abijah begat Asa; And Asa begat Jehoshaphat; and Jehoshaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Uzziah; And Uzziah begat Jotham; and Jotham begat Ahaz; and Ahaz begat Hezekiah; 10 And Hezekiah begat Manasseh; and Manasseh begat Amon; and Amon begat Josiah; 11 And Josiah begat Jeconiah and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon: {Josiah...: some read, Josiah begat Jehoiakim, and Jehoiakim begat Jeconiah} 12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jeconiah begat Shealtiel; and Shealtiel begat Zerubbabel; 13 And Zerubbabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor; 14 And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud; 15 And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob; 16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ. 17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon to Christ are fourteen generations.

18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was in this manner: When his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child by the Holy Spirit. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man , and not willing to make her a public example, purposed to put her away secretly. 20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take to thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is by the Holy Spirit. {conceived: Gr. begotten} 21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. {JESUS: that is, Saviour, Heb} 22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken from the Lord by the prophet, saying, 23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. {they...: or, his name shall be called} 24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took to him his wife: 25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
