The Genealogy of Jesus
(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 brothers; 3And Judah begat Phares and Zara from 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 who was the wife of Uriah; 7and Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa; 8and Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; Joram begat Hozias; 9Hozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; Achaz begat Hezekiah; 10and Hezekiah begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josiah; 11and Josiah begat Jechonias and his brothers in the captivity of Babylon.

12And after the captivity of Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorababbel; 13Zorababbel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor; 14and Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Acheim; Acheim begat Eliud; 15and Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob; 16and Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, from whom Jesus, who is called Christ, was born.

17Therefore all the generations from Abraham unto David are fourteen generations; from David unto the captivity of Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the captivity of Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.

The Birth of Jesus
(Luke 2:1–7)

18The birth of Jesus Christ was thus: His mother Mary, having been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, was found having gestation from the Holy Ghost. 19And Joseph her husband, being righteous and not wishing to expose her publicly, determined to send her away secretly. 20And he meditating on these things, behold an angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying; Joseph, son of David, do not fear to receive Mary thy wife; for that which is begotten in her is of the Holy Spirit; 21she shall bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name Jesus; for He will save His people from their sins. 22And all this took place in order that the Word, having been spoken by the Lord through the prophet, might be fulfilled, saying; 23Behold, the virgin shall have gestation and bring forth a son, and they will call his name Emmanuel, which is interpreted, God is with us. 24And Joseph rising from sleep did as the angel of the Lord commanded him; 25and he took his wife to himself, and did not know her until she brought forth a son, and called his name Jesus.
