akjv@Matthew:1:1@ The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
akjv@Matthew:1:2@ Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brothers;
akjv@Matthew:1:3@ And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;
akjv@Matthew:1:4@ And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;
akjv@Matthew:1:5@ And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;
akjv@Matthew:1:6@ And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;
akjv@Matthew:1:7@ And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa;
akjv@Matthew:1:8@ And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias;
akjv@Matthew:1:9@ And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias;
akjv@Matthew:1:10@ And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias;
akjv@Matthew:1:11@ And Josias begat Jechonias and his brothers, about the time they were carried away to Babylon:
akjv@Matthew:1:12@ And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;
akjv@Matthew:1:13@ And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor;
akjv@Matthew:1:14@ And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud;
akjv@Matthew:1:15@ And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob;
akjv@Matthew:1:16@ And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
akjv@Matthew:1:17@ So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon to Christ are fourteen generations.
akjv@Matthew:1:18@ Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
akjv@Matthew:1:19@ Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privately.
akjv@Matthew:1:20@ But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, you son of David, fear not to take to you Mary your wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
akjv@Matthew:1:21@ And she shall bring forth a son, and you shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
akjv@Matthew:1:22@ Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
akjv@Matthew:1:23@ Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
akjv@Matthew:1:24@ Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took to him his wife:
akjv@Matthew:1:25@ And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
