Matthew Chapter 1

Mat 1:1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
Mat 1:2 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judah and his brothers;
Mat 1:3 And Judah begat Phares and Zara from Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;
Mat 1:4 and Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;
Mat 1:5 and Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;
Mat 1:6 and Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her who was the wife of Uriah;
Mat 1:7 and Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa;
Mat 1:8 and Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; Joram begat Hozias;
Mat 1:9 Hozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; Achaz begat Hezekiah;
Mat 1:10 and Hezekiah begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josiah;
Mat 1:11 and Josiah begat Jechonias and his brothers in the captivity of Babylon.
Mat 1:12 And after the captivity of Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorababbel;
Mat 1:13 Zorababbel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor;
Mat 1:14 and Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Acheim; Acheim begat Eliud;
Mat 1:15 and Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob;
Mat 1:16 and Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, from whom Jesus, who is called Christ, was born.
Mat 1:17 Therefore all the generations from Abraham unto David are fourteen generations; from David unto the captivity of Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the captivity of Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.
Mat 1:18 The birth of Jesus Christ was thus: His mother Mary, having been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, was found having gestation from the Holy Ghost.
Mat 1:19 And Joseph her husband, being righteous and not wishing to expose her publicly, determined to send her away secretly.
Mat 1:20 And he meditating on these things, behold an angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying; Joseph, son of David, do not fear to receive Mary thy wife; for that which is begotten in her is of the Holy Spirit;
Mat 1:21 she shall bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name Jesus; for He will save His people from their sins.
Mat 1:22 And all this took place in order that the Word, having been spoken by the Lord through the prophet, might be fulfilled, saying;
Mat 1:23 Behold, the virgin shall have gestation and bring forth a son, and they will call his name Emmanuel, which is interpreted, God is with us.
Mat 1:24 And Joseph rising from sleep did as the angel of the Lord commanded him;
Mat 1:25 and he took his wife to himself, and did not know her until she brought forth a son, and called his name Jesus.
