Matthew 1
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1[The] scroll of the birth of Jesus Christ, Son of David, Son of Abraham.

2Abraham begot Isaac, and Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot Judah and his brothers, 3and Judah begot Perez and Zerah of Tamar, and Perez begot Hezron, and Hezron begot Ram, 4and Ram begot Amminadab, and Amminadab begot Nahshon, and Nahshon begot Salmon, 5and Salmon begot Boaz of Rahab, and Boaz begot Obed of Ruth, and Obed begot Jesse, 6and Jesse begot David the king. And David the king begot Solomon, of her [who had been] Uriah’s, 7and Solomon begot Rehoboam, and Rehoboam begot Abijah, and Abijah begot Asa, 8and Asa begot Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat begot Joram, and Joram begot Uzziah, 9and Uzziah begot Jotham, and Jotham begot Ahaz, and Ahaz begot Hezekiah, 10and Hezekiah begot Manasseh, and Manasseh begot Amon, and Amon begot Josiah, 11and Josiah begot Jeconiah and his brothers, at the Babylonian removal.

12And after the Babylonian removal, Jeconiah begot Shealtiel, and Shealtiel begot Zerubbabel, 13and Zerubbabel begot Abiud, and Abiud begot Eliakim, and Eliakim begot Azor, 14and Azor begot Sadok, and Sadok begot Achim, and Achim begot Eliud, 15and Eliud begot Eleazar, and Eleazar begot Matthan, and Matthan begot Jacob, 16and Jacob begot Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was begotten Jesus, who is named Christ.

17All the generations, therefore, from Abraham to David [are] fourteen generations, and from David to the Babylonian removal fourteen generations, and from the Babylonian removal to the Christ, fourteen generations.

18And of Jesus Christ, the birth was thus: for His mother Mary having been betrothed to Joseph, before their coming together she was found to have conceived from the Holy Spirit, 19and her husband Joseph being righteous, and not willing to make her an example, resolved to send her away privately. 20And on his thinking of these things, behold, a messenger of the LORD appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, you may not fear to receive your wife Mary, for that which was begotten in her is of [the] Holy Spirit, 21and she will bring forth a Son, and you will call His Name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” 22And all this has come to pass, that it may be fulfilled that was spoken by the LORD through the prophet, saying, 23“Behold, the virgin will conceive, and she will bring forth a Son, and they will call His Name Emmanuel,” which is, being interpreted, “God with us.” 24And Joseph, having risen from sleep, did as the messenger of the LORD directed him, and received his wife, 25and did not know her until she brought forth her Son—the firstborn, and he called His Name Jesus.
