1THE book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

2Abraham begot Isaac; Isaac begot Jacob; Jacob begot Judah and his brothers; 3Judah begot Perez and Zerah of his wife Tamar; Perez begot Hezron; Hezron begot Aram; 4Aram begot Aminadab; Aminadab begot Nahson; Nahson begot Salmon; 5Salmon begot Boaz of his wife Rahab; Boaz begot Obed of his wife Ruth; Obed begot Jesse; 6Jesse begot David the king; David the king begot Solomon of the wife of Uriah; 7Solomon begot Rehoboam; Rehoboam begot Abijah; Abijah begot Asa; 8Asa begot Jehoshaphat; Jehoshaphat begot Joram; Joram begot Uzziah; 9Uzziah begot Jotham; Jotham begot Ahaz; Ahaz begot Hezekiah; 10Hezekiah begot Manasseh; Manasseh begot Amon; Amon begot Josiah; 11Josiah begot Jechoniah and his brothers, about the captivity of Babylon.

12And after the captivity of Babylon, Jechoniah begot Shealtiel; Shealtiel begot Zerubbabel; 13Zerubbabel begot Abiud; Abiud begot Eliakim; Eliakim begot Azor; 14Azor begot Sadoc; Sadoc begot Achim; Achim begot Eliud; 15Eliud begot Eleazar; Eleazar begot Matthan; Matthan begot Jacob; 16Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

17Therefore all the generations, from Abraham down to David, are fourteen generations; and from David down to the Babylonian captivity, fourteen generations; and from the Babylonian captivity down to Christ, fourteen generations.

18The birth of Jesus Christ was in this manner. While Mary his mother was acquired for a price for Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. 19But Joseph her husband was a pious man, and did not wish to make it public; so hewas thinking of divorcing her secretly. 20While he was considering this, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, and said to him, O, Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take your wife Mary, because he that is to be born of her is of the Holy Spirit. 21She will give birth to a son, and you will call his name Jesus; for he shall save his people from their sins. 22All this happened, that what was spoken from the Lord by the prophet might be fulfilled, 23Behold, a virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel, which is interpreted, Our God is with us. 24When Joseph rose up from his sleep, he did just as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and he took his wife. 25And he did not know her until she gave birth to her first-born son; and she called his name Jesus.
