rkjnt@Matthew:1:1@ The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
rkjnt@Matthew:1:2@ Abraham was the father of Isaac; and Isaac the father of Jacob; and Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers;
rkjnt@Matthew:1:3@ And Judah the father of Perez and Zarah by Tamar; and Perez the father of Hezron; and Hezron the father of Ram;
rkjnt@Matthew:1:4@ And Ram the father of Amminadab; and Amminadab the father of Nahshon; and Nahshon the father of Salma;
rkjnt@Matthew:1:5@ And Salma the father of Boaz by Rahab; and Boaz the father of Obed by Ruth; and Obed the father of Jesse;
rkjnt@Matthew:1:6@ And Jesse the father of David the king; and David the king the father of Solomon by her who had been the wife of Uriah;
rkjnt@Matthew:1:7@ And Solomon the father of Rehoboam; and Rehoboam the father of Abijah; and Abijah the father of Asa;
rkjnt@Matthew:1:8@ And Asa the father of Jehoshaphat; and Jehoshaphat the father of Joram; and Joram the father of Azariah;
rkjnt@Matthew:1:9@ And Azariah the father of Jotham; and Jotham the father of Ahaz; and Ahaz the father of Hezekiah;
rkjnt@Matthew:1:10@ And Hezekiah the father of Manasseh; and Manasseh the father of Amon; and Amon the father of Josiah;
rkjnt@Matthew:1:11@ And Josiah the father of Jeconiah and his brothers, about the time they were carried away to Babylon:
rkjnt@Matthew:1:12@ And after the exile to Babylon, Jeconiah became the father of Shealtiel; and Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel;
rkjnt@Matthew:1:13@ And Zerubbabel the father of Abiud; and Abiud the father of Eliakim; and Eliakim the father of Azor;
rkjnt@Matthew:1:14@ And Azor the father of Zadok; and Zadok the father of Achim; and Achim the father of Eliud;
rkjnt@Matthew:1:15@ And Eliud the father of Eleazar; and Eleazar the father of Matthan; and Matthan the father of Jacob;
rkjnt@Matthew:1:16@ And Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, by whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
rkjnt@Matthew:1:17@ So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the exile to Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the exile to Babylon to Christ are fourteen generations.
rkjnt@Matthew:1:18@ Now the birth of Jesus Christ happened in this way: When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit.
rkjnt@Matthew:1:19@ Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to disgrace her, decided to divorce her secretly.
rkjnt@Matthew:1:20@ But while he thought on these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.
rkjnt@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.
rkjnt@Matthew:1:22@ Now all this was done to fulfill that which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying,
rkjnt@Matthew:1:23@ Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which translated means, God with us.
rkjnt@Matthew:1:24@ Then Joseph, being raised from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took her as his wife:
rkjnt@Matthew:1:25@ And kept her a virgin until she had brought forth a son: and he called his name JESUS.
