1The book of the #Luke 3:23genealogy of Jesus Christ, #2 Sam. 7:12–16; Ps. 132:11; Is. 9:6; 11:1; Jer. 23:5; (Matt. 1:18; Luke 3:23, 31); John 7:42; Acts 2:30; (Rom. 1:3); Rev. 22:16the Son of David, #Gen. 12:3; 22:18; (Gal. 3:16)the Son of Abraham:
2#Gen. 21:2, 12Abraham begot Isaac, #Gen. 25:26; 28:14Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot #Gen. 29:35Judah and his brothers. 3#Gen. 38:27; 49:10Judah begot Perez and Zerah by Tamar, #Ruth 4:18–22; 1 Chr. 2:1–15; Matt. 1:3–6Perez begot Hezron, and Hezron begot Ram. 4Ram begot Amminadab, Amminadab begot Nahshon, and Nahshon begot Salmon. 5Salmon begot #Ruth 2:1; 4:1–13Boaz by Rahab, Boaz begot Obed by Ruth, Obed begot Jesse, 6and #1 Sam. 16:1; Is. 11:1, 10Jesse begot David the king.
#2 Sam. 7:12; 12:24; Is. 9:7David the king begot Solomon by her who had been the wife of Uriah. 7#1 Kin. 11:43; 1 Chr. 3:10Solomon begot Rehoboam, Rehoboam begot #2 Chr. 11:20Abijah, and Abijah begot Asa. 8Asa begot #1 Chr. 3:10Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat begot Joram, and Joram begot #2 Kin. 15:13Uzziah. 9Uzziah begot Jotham, Jotham begot #2 Kin. 15:38Ahaz, and Ahaz begot Hezekiah. 10#2 Kin. 20:21Hezekiah begot Manasseh, Manasseh begot Amon, and Amon begot #1 Kin. 13:2Josiah. 11#1 Chr. 3:15, 16Josiah begot Jeconiah and his brothers about the time they were #2 Kin. 24:14–16; Jer. 27:20; Matt. 1:17carried away to Babylon.
12And after they were brought to Babylon, #1 Chr. 3:17Jeconiah begot Shealtiel, and Shealtiel begot #Ezra 3:2; Neh. 12:1; Hag. 1:1Zerubbabel. 13Zerubbabel begot Abiud, Abiud begot Eliakim, and Eliakim begot Azor. 14Azor begot Zadok, Zadok begot Achim, and Achim begot Eliud. 15Eliud begot Eleazar, Eleazar begot Matthan, and Matthan begot Jacob. 16And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of #Matt. 13:55; Mark 6:3Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ.
17So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, from David until the captivity in Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the captivity in Babylon until the Christ are fourteen generations.
Christ Born of Mary
18Now the #Matt. 12:46; Luke 1:27birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child #Is. 7:14; 49:5; Luke 1:35of the Holy Spirit. 19Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting #Deut. 24:1; John 8:4, 5to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. 20But while he thought about 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 to you Mary your wife, #Luke 1:35for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21#(Is. 7:14; 9:6, 7); Luke 1:31; 2:21And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, #Luke 2:11; John 1:29; (Acts 4:12; 5:31; 13:23, 38; Rom. 5:18, 19; Col. 1:20–23)for He will save His people from their sins.”
22So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: 23#Is. 7:14“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”
24Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife, 25and did not know her till she had brought forth #Ex. 13:2; Luke 2:7, 21her firstborn Son. And he called His name Jesus.

1 THE BOOK of the ancestry (genealogy) of Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed), the son (descendant) of David, the son (descendant) of Abraham. [Ps. 132:11; Isa. 11:1.]
2 Abraham was the father of Isaac, Isaac the father of Jacob, Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers,
3 Judah the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar, Perez the father of Hezron, Hezron the father of Aram,
4 Aram the father of Aminadab, Aminadab the father of Nahshon, Nahshon the father of Salmon,
5 Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab, Boaz the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth, Obed the father of Jesse,
6 Jesse the father of King David, King David the father of Solomon, whose mother had been the wife of Uriah, [Ruth 4:18-22; I Chron. 2:13-15.]
7 Solomon the father of Rehoboam, Rehoboam the father of Abijah, Abijah the father of Asa,
8 Asa the father of Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat the father of Joram [Jehoram], Joram the father of Uzziah,
9 Uzziah the father of Jotham, Jotham the father of Ahaz, Ahaz the father of Hezekiah,
10 Hezekiah the father of Manasseh, Manasseh the father of Amon, Amon the father of Josiah,
11 And Josiah became the father of Jeconiah [also called Coniah and Jehoiachin] and his brothers about the time of the removal (deportation) to Babylon. [II Kings 24:14; I Chron. 3:15, 16.]
12 After the exile to Babylon, Jeconiah became the father of Shealtiel [Salathiel], Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel,
13 Zerubbabel the father of Abiud, Abiud the father of Eliakim, Eliakim the father of Azor,
14 Azor the father of Sadoc, Sadoc the father of Achim, Achim the father of Eliud,
15 Eliud the father of Eleazar, Eleazar the father of Matthan, Matthan the father of Jacob,
16 Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, Who is called the Christ. (the Messiah, the Anointed)
17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen, from David to the Babylonian exile (deportation) fourteen generations, from the Babylonian exile to the Christ fourteen generations.
18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place under these circumstances: When His mother Mary had been promised in marriage to Joseph, before they came together, she was found to be pregnant [through the power] of the Holy Spirit.
19 And her [promised] husband Joseph, being a just and upright man and not willing to expose her publicly and to shame and disgrace her, decided to repudiate and dismiss (divorce) her quietly and secretly.
20 But as he was thinking this over, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, descendant of David, do not be afraid to take Mary [as] your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of (from, out of) the Holy Spirit.
21 She will bear a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus [the Greek form of the Hebrew Joshua, which means Savior], for He will save His people from their sins [that is, prevent them from failing and missing the true end and scope of life, which is God].
22 All this took place that it might be fulfilled which the Lord had spoken through the prophet,
23 Behold, the virgin shall become pregnant and give birth to a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel–which, when translated, means, God with us. [Isa. 7:14.]
24 Then Joseph, being aroused from his sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him: he took [her to his side as] his wife.
25 But he had no union with her as her husband until she had borne her firstborn Son; and he called His name Jesus.
