The Genealogy of Jesus Christ
(Luke 3.23-38)
1The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
2Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judah and his brethren; 3and Judah begat Pharez and Zerah of Tamar; and Pharez begat Hezron; and Hezron begat Ram; 4and Ram begat Ammin´adab; and Ammin´adab begat Nahshon; and Nahshon begat Salmon; 5and Salmon begat Boaz of Rachab; and Boaz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse; 6and Jesse begat David the king.
And David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Uri´ah; 7and Solomon begat Rehobo´am; and Rehobo´am begat Abi´jah; and Abi´jah begat Asa; 8and Asa begat Jehosh´aphat; and Jehosh´aphat begat Jeho´ram; and Jeho´ram begat Uzzi´ah; 9and Uzzi´ah begat Jotham; and Jotham begat Ahaz; and Ahaz begat Hezeki´ah; 10and Hezeki´ah begat Manas´seh; and Manas´seh begat Amon; and Amon begat Josi´ah; 11#2 Kgs 24.14,15; 2 Chr 36.10; Jer 27.20. and Josi´ah begat Jeconi´ah and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon.
12And after they were brought to Babylon, Jeconi´ah begat She-al´ti-el; and She-al´ti-el begat Zerub´babel; 13and Zerub´babel begat Abi´ud; and Abi´ud begat Eli´akim; and Eli´akim begat Azor; 14and Azor begat Zadok; and Zadok begat Achim; and Achim begat Eli´ud; 15and Eli´ud begat Ele-a´zar; and Ele-a´zar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob; 16and Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
17So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.
The Birth of Jesus Christ
(Luke 2.1-7)
18 # Luke 1.27. Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily. 20But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. 21#Luke 1.31; Ps 130.8. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. 22Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
23 # Isa 7.14. Behold, a virgin shall be with child,
and shall bring forth a son,
and they shall call his name Imman´u-el,
which being interpreted is, God with us. 24Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: 25#Luke 2.21. and knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name Jesus.

1This book is the record of Jesus the Messiah,#1:1. Or “Christ.” Christ is the Greek word for Messiah in Hebrew. the son of David, the son of Abraham, beginning with the family line:
2Abraham was the father#1:2. “Was the father of”: or “fathered.” 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 (their mother was Tamar); and Perez the father of Hezron; and Hezron the father of Ram; 4and Ram the father of Amminadab; and Amminadab the father of Nahshon; and Nahshon the father of Salmon; 5and Salmon the father of Boaz (his mother was Rahab); and Boaz the father of Obed (his mother was Ruth); and Obed the father of Jesse; 6and Jesse the father of King David. David was the father of Solomon (his mother had been Uriah's wife); 7and Solomon the father of Rehoboam; and Rehoboam the father of Abijah; and Abijah the father of Asa; 8and Asa the father of Jehoshaphat; and Jehoshaphat the father of Jehoram; and Jehoram 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 Amon; and Amon the father of Josiah; 11and Josiah the father of Jehoiachin and his brothers, at the time of the exile to Babylon. 12After the exile to Babylon, Jehoiachin was the father of Shealtiel; and Shealtiel 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 Akim; and Akim the father of Eliud; 15and Eliud the father of Eleazar; and Eleazar the father of Matthan; and Matthan the father of Jacob;
16and Jacob was the father of Joseph, who was the husband of Mary, to whom Jesus was born, the one who is called the Messiah.
17So all the generations from Abraham to David add up to fourteen; from David to the Babylonian exile, fourteen; and from the Babylonian exile to the Messiah, fourteen.
18This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah happened. His mother, Mary, was engaged to Joseph, but before they slept together she became pregnant by the Holy Spirit. 19Joseph, her fiancé, was a good man and didn't want to shame her publicly, so he decided to break the engagement discreetly.
20While he was thinking about all of this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and told him, “Joseph, son of David, don't be afraid to marry Mary because she is pregnant by the Holy Spirit. 21She will give birth to a son and you shall call him Jesus, for he will save people from their sins.” 22(Now this all happened to fulfill what the Lord said through the prophet: 23“A virgin will become pregnant, and will give birth to a son. They will call him Immanuel,” which means “God with us.”)#1:23. See Isaiah 7:14. 24Joseph woke up and did what the angel of the Lord told him to do. 25Joseph married Mary, but did not sleep with her until after she had given birth to a son, whom he named Jesus.
