Mat 1:1 THE RECORD of the generation of Jeshu the Meshicha, the son of David, son of Abraham.
Mat 1:2 Abraham begat Ishok, Ishok begat Jakub, Jakub begat Jehuda and his brethren,
Mat 1:3 Jehuda begat Pharets and Zoroch from Thomar. Pharets begat Hetsron, Hetsron begat Arom,

Mat 1:5 Salmun begat Booz from Rochab, Booz begat Ubid from Ruth, Ubid begat Ishai,
Mat 1:6 Ishai begat David the king; David begat Shelemun from [her who had been] the wife of Uria;
Mat 1:7 Shelemun begat Rehebaam, Rehebaam begat Abia, Abia begat Asa,
Mat 1:8 Asa begat Johushaphat, Johushaphat begat Jurom, Jurom begat Uzia,
Mat 1:9 Uzia begat Juthom, Juthom begat Ahaz, Ahaz begat Hezakia,
Mat 1:10 Hezakia begat Menasha, Menasha begat Amun, Amun begat Jushia,
Mat 1:11 Jushia begat Jukania and his brethren at the exile of Bobel.
Mat 1:12 And after the exile of Bobel Jukania begat Shalathiel, Shalathiel begat Zurbobel,
Mat 1:13 Zurbobel begat Abiud, Abiud begat Aliakim, Aliakim begat Ozur,
Mat 1:14 Ozur begat Zoduk, Zoduk begat Akin, Akin begat Aliud,
Mat 1:15 Aliud begat Aliozar, Aliozar begat Mathan, Mathan begat Jakub,
Mat 1:16 Jakub begat Jauseph, husband of Mariam, of whom was born Jeshu who is called the Meshicha.
Mat 1:17 Thus all the generations from Abraham to David (were) fourteen generations; and from David to the exile of Bobel, fourteen generations; and from the exile of Bobel to the Meshicha, fourteen generations.
Mat 1:18 NOW the nativity of Jeshu the Meshicha was thus: While Mariam his mother was betrothed to Jauseph, before they could be consociated, she was found to be with child from the Spirit of Holiness.
Mat 1:19 But Jauseph her husband was just, and, not willing to defame her, meditated privately to release her.
Mat 1:20 But while (on) these (things) he reflected, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, and said to him, Jauseph, son of David, fear not to take Mariam thy wife; for that which is conceived in her is from the Spirit of Holiness.
Mat 1:21 She shall give birth to a son, and thou shalt call his name Jeshu; for he shall save his people from their sins.
Mat 1:22 Now all this was done, that what was spoken from the Lord by the prophet might be fulfilled:
Mat 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth the son, and they shall call his name Amanuel; which is interpreted, With us (is) our Aloha.
Mat 1:24 Then Jauseph, when he had arisen from his sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took unto him his wife;
Mat 1:25 and knew her not until she had given birth to her son, the firstborn; and she called his name Jeshu.
