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.

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.
