1:1 The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
2 Abraham begot Isaac: Isaac begot Jacob: Jacob begot Judah and his brothers:
3 Judah begot Pharez and Zerah of Tamar: Pharez begot Hezron: Hezron begot Ram:
4 Ram begot Amminadab: Amminadab begot Nashon: Nashon begot Salmon:
5 Salmon begot Boaz of Rahab: Boaz begot Obed of Ruth: Obed begot Jesse:
6 Jesse begot David the king. David begot Solomon of the wife of Uriah:
7 Solomon begot Rehoboam: Rehoboam begot Abijah: Abijah begot Asa:
8 Asa begot Jehosaphat: Jehosaphat begot Jehoram: Jehoram begot Uzziah:
9 Uzziah begot Jotham: Jotham begot Ahaz: Ahaz begot Hezekiah:
10 Hezekiah begot Manasseh: Manasseh begot Amon: Amon begot Josiah:
11 Josiah begot Jeconiah and his brothers about the time of the removal to Babylon.
12 But after the removal to Babylon, Jeconiah begot Shealtiel: Shealtiel begot Zerubbabel:
13 Zerubbabel begot Abihud: Abihud begot Eliakim: Eliakim begot Azor:
14 Azor begot Zadoc: Zadoc begot Achim: Achim begot Eliud:
15 Eliud begot Eleazar: Eleazar begot Matthan: Matthan begot Jacob:
16 Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ.
17 So all the generations from Abraham till David, are fourteen generations; and from David till the removal to Babylon, are fourteen generations; and from the removal to Babylon till Christ, are fourteen generations.
18 But the birth of Jesus Christ was thus: After his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.
19 And Joseph her husband, being just and not willing to make her an example, intended to put her away privately.
20 But while he thought of these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying: Joseph, son of David, fear not to take to thee Mary thy wife; for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.
21 And she shall bear a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus; for he shall save his people from their sins.
22 And all this was done, that it might be fulfilled that was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying:
23 Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel, which is, when translated, God with us.
24 And Joseph arose from his sleep, and did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him, and took to him his wife; and knew her not till she had brought forth a son; and he called his name Jesus.
