Matthew 1

CHAPTER 1
1The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
2Abraham begat Isaac. Isaac begat Jacob. Jacob begat Judah and his brethren.
3Judah begat Perez and Zara, of Thamar. Perez begat Esrom. Esrom begat Aram.
4Aram begat Amminadab. Ammin-adab begat Naasson. Naasson begat Salmon.
5Salmon begat Boaz, of Rachab. Boaz begat Obed, of Ruth. Obed begat Jesse.
6Jesse begat David the king. David the king begat Solomon, of her that was Uriah’s wife.
7Solomon begat Rehoboam. Reho-boam begat Abia. Abia begat Asa.
8Asa begat Jehoshaphat. Jehosha-phat begat Joram. Joram begat Uzziah.
9Uzziah begat Joatham. Joatham begat Ahaz. Ahaz begat Hezekiah.
10Hezekiah begat Manasseh. Manas-seh begat Amon. Amon begat Josiah.
11Josiah begat Jechoniah and his brethren, into the transmigration of Babylon.
12And after the transmigration of Babylon, Jechoniah begat Salathiel. Salathiel begat Zerubbabel.
13Zerubbabel begat Abiud. Abiud begat Eliakim. Eliakim begat Azor.
14Azor begat Zadok. Zadok begat Achim. Achim begat Elihud.
15Elihud begat Eleazar. Eleazar begat Matthan. Matthan begat Jacob.
16Jacob begat Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, that is called Christ.
17And so all the generations from Abraham to David be fourteen generations, and from David to the transmigration of Babylon be fourteen generations, and from the trans-migration of Babylon to Christ be fourteen generations.
18But the generation of Christ was thus. When Mary, the mother of Jesus, was espoused to Joseph, before that they came together, she was found having of the Holy Ghost in the womb.
19And Joseph, her husband, for he was rightful [or a just man], and would not publish her, he would privily have left her.
20But while he thought these things, lo! the angel of the Lord appeared to him in sleep, and said, Joseph, the son of David, do not thou dread to take Mary, thy wife; for that thing that is born in her is of the Holy Ghost.
21And she shall bear a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus; for he shall make his people safe from their sins.
22For all this thing was done, that it should be fulfilled, that was said of the Lord by a prophet, saying,
23Lo! a virgin shall have in [the] womb, and she shall bear a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, that is to say, God with us.
24And Joseph rose [up] from sleep, and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary, his wife;
25and he knew her not, till she had born her first begotten son, and he called his name Jesus.

The Family History of Jesus
1This is the family history of Jesus Christ. He came from the family of David, and David came from the family of Abraham.
2Abraham was the father of Isaac.
Isaac was the father of Jacob.
Jacob was the father of Judah and his brothers.
3Judah was the father of Perez and Zerah.
(Their mother was Tamar.)
Perez was the father of Hezron.
Hezron was the father of Ram.
4Ram was the father of Amminadab.
Amminadab was the father of Nahshon.
Nahshon was the father of Salmon.
5Salmon was the father of Boaz.
(Boaz’s mother was Rahab.)
Boaz was the father of Obed.
(Obed’s mother was Ruth.)
Obed was the father of Jesse.
6Jesse was the father of King David.
David was the father of Solomon.
(Solomon’s mother had been Uriah’s wife.)
7Solomon was the father of Rehoboam.
Rehoboam was the father of Abijah.
Abijah was the father of Asa.
8Asa was the father of Jehoshaphat.
Jehoshaphat was the father of Jehoram.
Jehoram was the ancestor of Uzziah.
9Uzziah was the father of Jotham.
Jotham was the father of Ahaz.
Ahaz was the father of Hezekiah.
10Hezekiah was the father of Manasseh.
Manasseh was the father of Amon.
Amon was the father of Josiah.
11Josiah was the grandfather of Jehoiachin and his brothers.
(This was at the time that the people were taken to Babylon.)
12After they were taken to Babylon:
Jehoiachin was the father of Shealtiel.
Shealtiel was the grandfather of Zerubbabel.
13Zerubbabel was the father of Abiud.
Abiud was the father of Eliakim.
Eliakim was the father of Azor.
14Azor was the father of Zadok.
Zadok was the father of Akim.
Akim was the father of Eliud.
15Eliud was the father of Eleazar.
Eleazar was the father of Matthan.
Matthan was the father of Jacob.
16Jacob was the father of Joseph.
Joseph was the husband of Mary,
and Mary was the mother of Jesus.
Jesus is called the Christ.
17So there were fourteen generations from Abraham to David. And there were fourteen generations from David until the people were taken to Babylon. And there were fourteen generations from the time when the people were taken to Babylon until Christ was born.
The Birth of Jesus Christ
18This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about. His mother Mary was engaged to marry Joseph, but before they married, she learned she was pregnant by the power of the Holy Spirit. 19Because Mary’s husband, Joseph, was a good man, he did not want to disgrace her in public, so he planned to divorce her secretly.
20While Joseph thought about these things, an angel of the Lord came to him in a dream. The angel said, “Joseph, descendant of David, don’t be afraid to take Mary as your wife, because the baby in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21She will give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
22All this happened to bring about what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23“The virgin will be pregnant. She will have a son, and they will name him Immanuel,” which means “God is with us.”
24When Joseph woke up, he did what the Lord’s angel had told him to do. Joseph took Mary as his wife, 25but he did not have sexual relations with her until she gave birth to the son. And Joseph named him Jesus.
