2 # Gen. 21:3 Abraham was the father of Isaac, and #Gen. 25:26 Isaac the father of Jacob, and #Gen. 29:35Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers, 3and #[Ruth 4:18-22; 1 Chr. 2:1-15]Judah the father of Perez and Zerah by Tamar, and Perez the father of Hezron, and Hezron the father of Ram,#1:3 Greek Aram; also verse 4 4and Ram the father of Amminadab, and Amminadab the father of Nahshon, and Nahshon the father of Salmon, 5and Salmon the father of Boaz by #Josh. 6:25Rahab, and Boaz the father of Obed by Ruth, and Obed the father of Jesse, 6and #1 Sam. 16:1; 17:12 Jesse the father of David the king.
And #2 Sam. 12:24 David was the father of Solomon by #2 Sam. 12:10the wife of Uriah, 7and #For ver. 7-10, see 1 Chr. 3:10-14Solomon the father of Rehoboam, and Rehoboam the father of Abijah, and Abijah the father of Asaph,#1:7 Asaph is probably an alternate spelling of Asa; some manuscripts Asa; also verse 8 8and Asaph the father of Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat the father of Joram, #[2 Kgs. 15:1; 1 Chr. 3:11, 12]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 Amos is probably an alternate spelling of Amon; some manuscripts Amon; twice in this verse and Amos the father of Josiah, 11and #1 Chr. 3:15, 16 Josiah the father of #Esth. 2:6; Jer. 24:1; 27:20Jechoniah and his brothers, at the time of the deportation to Babylon.
12And after the deportation to Babylon: #1 Chr. 3:17-19 Jechoniah was the father of #Luke 3:27 Shealtiel,#1:12 Greek Salathiel; twice in this verse and #Ezra 3:2Shealtiel 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 #Luke 3:23Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, who is called Christ.
17So all the generations from Abraham to David were fourteen generations, and from David to the deportation to Babylon fourteen generations, and from the deportation to Babylon to #ch. 2:4; 11:2; 16:16; 22:42; 23:10; Mark 8:29; Luke 3:15; [John 1:41; 4:25]the Christ fourteen generations.
The Birth of Jesus Christ
18Now the birth of #ver. 1; Mark 1:1; John 1:17; 17:3; [ver. 16] Jesus Christ#1:18 Some manuscripts of the Christ took place in this way. #Luke 1:27 When his mother Mary had been betrothed#1:18 That is, legally pledged to be married to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child #Luke 1:35from the Holy Spirit. 19And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling #[Deut. 24:1]to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. 20But as he considered these things, behold, #ch. 2:13, 19; [ch. 2:12, 22]an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21She will bear a son, and #ver. 25; Luke 1:31; 2:21 you shall call his name Jesus, #Luke 2:11; Acts 4:12; 5:31; 13:23, 38; [Acts 3:26]for he will save his people from their sins.” 22#ch. 21:4; 26:56; John 19:36 All this took place #ch. 2:15, 23; 4:14; Mark 14:49to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:
23 # Cited from Isa. 7:14 “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and they shall call his name #Isa. 8:8, 10 Immanuel”
(which means, God #See ch. 28:20with us). 24When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, 25but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And #ver. 21he called his name Jesus.

The ancestors and birth of Jesus
The ancestors of Jesus
(Luke 3.23-38)
1Jesus Christ came from the family of King David and also from the family of Abraham. And this is a list of his ancestors. 2-6aFrom Abraham to King David, his ancestors were:
Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Judah and his brothers (Judah's sons were Perez and Zerah, and their mother was Tamar), Hezron;
Ram, Amminadab, Nahshon, Salmon, Boaz (his mother was Rahab), Obed (his mother was Ruth), Jesse, and King David.
6b-11From David to the time of the exile in Babylonia, the ancestors of Jesus were:#2 K 24.14,15; 2 Ch 36.10; Jr 27.20.
David, Solomon (his mother had been Uriah's wife), Rehoboam, Abijah, Asa, Jehoshaphat, Jehoram;
Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, Hezekiah, Manasseh, Amon, Josiah, and Jehoiachin and his brothers.
12-16From the exile to the birth of Jesus, his ancestors were:
Jehoiachin, Shealtiel, Zerubbabel, Abiud, Eliakim, Azor, Zadok, Achim;
Eliud, Eleazar, Matthan, Jacob, and Joseph, the husband of Mary, the mother of Jesus, who is called the Messiah.
17There were fourteen generations from Abraham to David. There were also fourteen from David to the exile in Babylonia and fourteen more to the birth of the Messiah.
The birth of Jesus
(Luke 2.1-7)
18This is how Jesus Christ was born. A young woman named Mary was engaged to Joseph from King David's family. But before they were married, she learnt that she was going to have a baby by God's Holy Spirit.#Lk 1.27. 19Joseph was a good man#1.19 good man: Or “kind man”, or “man who always did the right thing”. and did not want to embarrass Mary in front of everyone. So he decided to call off the wedding quietly.
20While Joseph was thinking about this, an angel from the Lord came to him in a dream. The angel said, “Joseph, the baby that Mary will have is from the Holy Spirit. Go ahead and marry her. 21Then after her baby is born, name him Jesus,#1.21 name him Jesus: In Hebrew the name “Jesus” means “the Lord saves”. because he will save his people from their sins.”#Lk 1.31.
22So the Lord's promise came true, just as the prophet had said, 23“A virgin will have a baby boy, and he will be called Immanuel,” which means “God is with us.”#Is 7.14 (LXX).
24After Joseph woke up, he and Mary were soon married, just as the Lord's angel had told him to do. 25But they did not sleep together before her baby was born. Then Joseph named him Jesus.#Lk 2.21.
