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 Genealogy of Jesus the Messiah
1This is the genealogy#1:1 Or is an account of the origin of Jesus the Messiah#1:1 Or Jesus Christ. Messiah (Hebrew) and Christ (Greek) both mean Anointed One; also in verse 18. the son of David, the son of Abraham:
2Abraham was the father of Isaac,
Isaac the father of Jacob,
Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers,
3Judah the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar,
Perez the father of Hezron,
Hezron the father of Ram,
4Ram the father of Amminadab,
Amminadab the father of Nahshon,
Nahshon the father of Salmon,
5Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab,
Boaz the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth,
Obed the father of Jesse,
6and Jesse the father of King David.
David was the father of Solomon, whose mother had been Uriah’s wife,
7Solomon the father of Rehoboam,
Rehoboam the father of Abijah,
Abijah the father of Asa,
8Asa the father of Jehoshaphat,
Jehoshaphat the father of Jehoram,
Jehoram the father of Uzziah,
9Uzziah the father of Jotham,
Jotham the father of Ahaz,
Ahaz the father of Hezekiah,
10Hezekiah the father of Manasseh,
Manasseh the father of Amon,
Amon the father of Josiah,
11and Josiah the father of Jeconiah#1:11 That is, Jehoiachin; also in verse 12 and his brothers at the time of the exile to Babylon.
12After the exile to Babylon:
Jeconiah was the father of Shealtiel,
Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel,
13Zerubbabel the father of Abihud,
Abihud the father of Eliakim,
Eliakim the father of Azor,
14Azor the father of Zadok,
Zadok the father of Akim,
Akim the father of Elihud,
15Elihud the father of Eleazar,
Eleazar the father of Matthan,
Matthan the father of Jacob,
16and Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, and Mary was the mother of Jesus who is called the Messiah.
17Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Messiah.
Joseph Accepts Jesus as His Son
18This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about#1:18 Or The origin of Jesus the Messiah was like this: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. 19Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet#1:19 Or was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.
20But after he had considered 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 home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,#1:21 Jesus is the Greek form of Joshua, which means the Lord saves. because he will save his people from their sins.”
22All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”#1:23 Isaiah 7:14 (which means “God with us”).
24When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.
