The Genealogy of Jesus
(Luke 3:23–38)

1The History of the life of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

2Abraham was the father of Isaac, Isaac the father of Jacob, Jacob the father of Judas and his brethren. 3And Judas the father of Phares and Zara by Thamar, and Phares the father of Esrom, Esrom the father of Aram. 4Aram the father of Aminadab, Aminadab the father of Naasson, Naasson the father of Salmon. 5Salmon the father of Booz by Rachab, and Booz the father of Obed by Ruth, and Obed the father of Jesse. 6And Jesse the father of David the king, and David had Solomon by her that had been the wife of Urias. 7Solomon was the father of Roboam, Roboam the father of Abia, Abia the father of Asa. 8Asa the father of Josaphat, Josaphat the father of Joram, Joram the father of Ozias. 9Ozias the father of Joatham, Joatham the father of Achaz, Achaz the father of Ezekias. 10Ezekias the father of Manasses, Manasses the father of Amon, Amon the father of Josias. 11Josias the father of Jechonias and his brethren, about the time when the Jews were carried away to Babylon.

12and after their transmigration to Babylon, Jechonias was father of Salathiel, Salathiel father of Zorobabel. 13Zorobabel father of Abiud, Abiud father of Eliakim, Eliakim father of Azor. 14And Azor father of Sadoc, Sadoc father of Achim, Achim father of Eliud. 15Eliud father of Eleazar, Eleazar father of Matthan, Matthan father of Jacob. 16Jacob father of 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 to the Babylonian transmigration, are fourteen generations: and from the Babylonian transmigration unto Christ, are fourteen generations.

The Birth of Jesus
(Luke 2:1–7)

18Now the manner of Christ's birth was this: his mother Mary being promised in marriage to Joseph, before they came together, she became pregnant by the holy Spirit. 19but Joseph her husband, being a good-natur'd man, and unwilling to expose her to publick shame, he designed to put her away privately. 20but while he was revolving this in his mind, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, the off-spring of David, don't make any difficulty of taking Mary for thy wife: for her pregnancy is from the holy Spirit. 21and she shall be deliver'd of a son, to whom you shall give the name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. 22now by these events, that divine prediction of the Prophet had its full accomplishment, when he said, "Behold, 23a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel," that is to say, God our Saviour. 24Then Joseph being awak'd out of sleep, did as the angel of the Lord directed, and took his wife home, 25but did not cohabit with her as a wife, before she had-brought forth her first-born son; whom he named JESUS.
