Chapter 1

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

Matt. 1:2 Abraham begot Isaac; and Isaac begot Jacob; and Jacob begot Judah and his brothers;

Matt. 1:3 Judah begot Perez and Zerah of Tamar; and Perez begot Hezrom; and Hezrom begot Ram;

Matt. 1:4 Ram begot Amminadab; and Amminadab begot Nahshon; and Nahshon begot Salmon;

Matt. 1:5 Salmon begot Boaz by Rahab; and Boaz begot Obed by Ruth; and Obed begot Jesse;

Matt. 1:6 Jesse begot David the king; and David the king begot Solomon by her that had been the wife of Uriah;

Matt. 1:7 Solomon begot Rehoboam; and Rehoboam begot Abiijah; and Abiijah begot Asa;

Matt. 1:8 Asa begot Jehoshaphat; and Jehoshaphat begot Joram; and Joram begot Uzziah;

Matt. 1:9 Uzziah begot Jotham; and Jotham begot Ahaz; and Ahaz begot Hezekiah;

Matt. 1:10 Hezekiah begot Manasseh; and Manasseh begot Amon; and Amon begot Josiah;

Matt. 1:11 Josiah begot Jeconiah and his brothers, about the time they were taken away to Babylon:

Matt. 1:12 After they were taken to Babylon, Jeconiah begot Salathiel; and Salathiel begot Zerubbabel;

Matt. 1:13 Zerubbabel begot Abiud; and Abiud begot Eliakim; and Eliakim begot Azor;

Matt. 1:14 Azor begot Zadok; and Zadok begot Achim; and Achim begot Eliud;

Matt. 1:15 Eliud begot Eleazar; and Eleazar begot Matthan; and Matthan begot Jacob;

Matt. 1:16 Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of who was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

Matt. 1:17 So all the generations from Abraham to David were fourteen generations; and from David until the taking away to Babylon were fourteen generations; and from the taking away to Babylon to Christ were fourteen generations.

Matt. 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ happened this way: When His mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with Child of the Holy Spirit.

Matt. 1:19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, thought to put her away privately.

Matt. 1:20 But while he thought about these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, son of David, fear not to take to you Mary your wife: for that which is begotten in her is of the Holy Spirit.

Matt. 1:21 For she will bring out a Son, and you will call His name JESUS: for He will save His people from their sins.

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

Matt. 1:23 behold, a virgin will be with Child, and will bring out a Son, and they will call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Matt. 1:24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had told him and took to him be his wife:

Matt. 1:25 but did not know her until she had given birth to her firstborn Son: and he called His name JESUS.
