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.

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.
