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 Judas and his brethren;
1:3  And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; 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 Manasses; and Manasses 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.
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:
1:25  And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
