1:1

The genealogy of Jesus


1:1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

1:2 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judah and his brethren;

1:3 and Judah begat Phares and Zara of Tamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;

1:4 and Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;

1:5 and Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;

1:6 And Jesse begat David the King; and David the King begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;

1:7 and Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa;

1:8 and Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias;

1:9 and Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias;

1:10 and Ezekias begat Manessah; and Manessah begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias;

1:11 and Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon:

1:12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;

1:13 and Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor;

1:14 and Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud;

1:15 and Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob;

1:16 and Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of Whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

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 unto Christ are fourteen generations.

The virgin birth of Christ

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.

1:19 Then Joseph Her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make Her a publick example, was minded to put Her away privily.

1:20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy Wife: for that which is conceived in Her is of the Holy Ghost.

1:21 And She shall bring forth a Son, and thou shalt call His Name 'JESUS:' for He shall save His people from their sins."

1:22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

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."

1:24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his Wife:
