Matthew 1 ©
1 The pedigree of Jesus Christ according to the flesh from the forefathers, from Abraham downward. 18 His conception by the Holy Ghost, and birth of the virgin Mary. 22 As was foretold by the prophet.
THE 1book of the generation of Jesus Christ, 2the son of David,a the son of Abraham.
Abrahamb3begat Isaac; and Isaacc begat Jacob; and Jacobd begat Judas and his brethren;
And Judase begat Phares and Zara 4of Thamar; and Pharesf begat Esrom; and Esromg begat Aram;
And 5Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;
And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;
And Jesseh begat David the king; and David the king begat 6Solomon 7of her that had been the wife of Urias;
And Solomoni begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa;
And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat 8Ozias;
And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias;
And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias;
And Josiasj begat 9Jechonias and his brethren, 10about the time they were carried away to Babylon:
And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechoniask begat 11Salathiel; and Salathiell begat Zorobabel;
And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor;
And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud;
And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob;
And Jacob begat 12Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, 13who is called Christ.
So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon 14are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.
¶Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: Whenm as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, 15before they came together, she was 16found with child 17of the Holy Ghost.
Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her 18a publick example, was minded 19to put her away privily.n
But 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 20conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
And she shall bring forth a son, and thouo shalt call his name JESUS: for hep shall save 21his people from their sins.
Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
Behold,q22a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and 23they shall call his name 24Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had 25bidden him, and took unto him his wife:
And knew her not 26till she had brought forth her 27firstborn son: and he calledr his name JESUS.
