  • 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 Judas and his brethren;
  • 3And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;
  • 4And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;
  • 5And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz 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 Urias;
  • 7And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa;
  • 8And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias;
  • 9And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias;
  • 10And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias;
  • 11And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon:
  • 12And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;
  • 13And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor;
  • 14And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud;
  • 15And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar 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.
  • 18Now 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 publick 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.
  • 21And 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,
  • 23Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, 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:
  • 25And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
