1The booke of the generation of Jesus Christ the sonne of Dauid, the sonne of Abraham. 2Abraham begate Isaac. And Isaac begate Iacob. And Iacob begat Iudas and his brethren. 3And Iudas begate Phares, and Zara of Thamar. And Phares begate Esrom. And Esrom begate Aram. 4And Aram begate Aminadab. And Aminadab begate Naasson. And Naasson begat Salmon. 5And Salmon begate Booz of Rachab. And Booz begat Obed of Ruth. and Obed begat Iesse. 6And Iesse begate Dauid the King. And Dauid the King begate Salomon of her that was the wife of Vrias. 7And Salomon begate Roboam. And Roboam begate Abia. And Abia begate Asa. 8And Asa begate Iosaphat. And Iosaphat begate Ioram. And Ioram begate Hozias. 9And Hozias begat Ioatham. And Ioatham begate Achaz. And Achaz begate Ezekias. 10And Ezekias begate Manasses. And Manasses begate Amon. And Amon begate Iosias. 11And Iosias begate Iakim. And Iakim begate Iechonias and his brethren about the time they were caried away to Babylon. 12And after they were caried away into Babylon, Iechonias begate Salathiel. And Salathiel begate Zorobabel. 13And Zorobabel begate Abiud. And Abiud begate Eliacim. And Eliacim begate Azor. 14And Azor begate Sadoc. And Sadoc begate Achim. And Achim begate Eliud. 15And Eliud begate Eleazar. And Eleazar begate Matthan. And Matthan begate Iacob. 16And Iacob begat Ioseph ye husband of Mary, of whom was borne Jesus, that is called Christ. 17So all the generations from Abraham to Dauid, are fourtene generations. And from Dauid vntil they were caried away into Babylon, fourtene generations: and after they were caried away into Babylon vntill Christ, fourteene generations. 18Nowe the birth of Jesus Christ was thus, When as his mother Mary was betrothed to Ioseph, before they came together, shee was found with childe of the holy Ghost. 19Then Ioseph her husband being a iust man, and not willing to make her a publike example, was minded to put her away secretly. 20But whiles he thought these things, behold, the Angel of the Lord appeared vnto him in a dreame, saying, Ioseph, the sonne of Dauid, feare not to take Mary thy wife: for that which is conceiued in her, is of the holy Ghost. 21And she shall bring foorth a sonne, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for hee shall saue his people from their sinnes. 22And al this was done that it might be fulfilled, which is spoken of the Lord by ye Prophet, saying, 23Behold, a virgine shalbe with childe, and shall beare a sonne, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which is by interpretation, God with vs. 24Then Ioseph, being raised from sleepe, did as the Angel of the Lord had inioyned him, and tooke his wife. 25But he knew her not, til she had broght forth her first borne sonne, and he called his name JESUS.

The Genealogy of Jesus the Messiah
1An account of the genealogy#1.1 Or birth of Jesus the Messiah,#1.1 Or Jesus Christ the son of David, the son of Abraham.
2Abraham was the father of Isaac, and Isaac the father of Jacob, and Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers, 3and Judah the father of Perez and Zerah by Tamar, and Perez the father of Hezron, and Hezron the father of Aram, 4and Aram the father of Aminadab, and Aminadab the father of Nahshon, and Nahshon the father of Salmon, 5and Salmon the father of Boaz by Rahab, and Boaz the father of Obed by Ruth, and Obed the father of Jesse, 6and Jesse the father of King David.
And David was the father of Solomon by the wife of Uriah, 7and Solomon the father of Rehoboam, and Rehoboam the father of Abijah, and Abijah the father of Asaph,#1.7 Other ancient authorities read Asa 8and Asaph#1.8 Other ancient authorities read Asa the father of Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat the father of Joram, and Joram the father of Uzziah, 9and Uzziah the father of Jotham, and Jotham the father of Ahaz, and Ahaz the father of Hezekiah, 10and Hezekiah the father of Manasseh, and Manasseh the father of Amos,#1.10 Other ancient authorities read Amon and Amos#1.10 Other ancient authorities read Amon the father of Josiah, 11and Josiah the father of Jechoniah and his brothers, at the time of the deportation to Babylon.
12And after the deportation to Babylon: Jechoniah was the father of Salathiel, and Salathiel the father of Zerubbabel, 13and Zerubbabel the father of Abiud, and Abiud the father of Eliakim, and Eliakim the father of Azor, 14and Azor the father of Zadok, and Zadok the father of Achim, and Achim the father of Eliud, 15and Eliud the father of Eleazar, and Eleazar the father of Matthan, and Matthan the father of Jacob, 16and Jacob the father of Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, who is called the Messiah.#1.16 Or the Christ
17So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David to the deportation to Babylon, fourteen generations; and from the deportation to Babylon to the Messiah,#1.17 Or the Christ fourteen generations.
The Birth of Jesus the Messiah
18Now the birth of Jesus the Messiah#1.18 Or Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been engaged to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. 19Her husband Joseph, being a righteous man and unwilling to expose her to public disgrace, planned to dismiss her quietly. 20But just when he had resolved to do this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the child conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” 22All this took place to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet:
23“Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and they shall name him Emmanuel,”
which means, “God is with us.” 24When Joseph awoke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him; he took her as his wife, 25but had no marital relations with her until she had borne a son;#1.25 Other ancient authorities read her firstborn son and he named him Jesus.
