Matthew Chapter 1

Mat 1:1 THE book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
Mat 1:2 Abraham begat Isaac, and Isaac begat Jacob, and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren,
Mat 1:3 and Judas begat Phares, and Zara of Thamar, and Phares begat Esrom, and Esrom begat Aram;
Mat 1:4 and Aram begat Amminadab, and Amminadab begat Naasson, and Naasson begat Salmon,
Mat 1:5 and Salmon begat Boaz of Rachab, and Boaz 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 [that had been the wife] of Urias,
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, and Joram begat Ozias,
Mat 1:9 and Ozias begat Joatham, and Joatham begat Ahaz, and Ahaz begat Hezekias,
Mat 1:10 and Hezekias begat Manasses, and Manasses begat Amon, and Amon begat Josias,
Mat 1:11 and Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon,
Mat 1:12 and after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel, and Salathiel begat Zorobabel,
Mat 1:13 and Zorobabel begat Abiud, and Abiud begat Eliakim, and Eliakim begat Azor,
Mat 1:14 and Azor begat Sadoc, and Sadoc begat Achim, and Achim 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, of whom is born Jesus, who is called Christ.
Mat 1:17 So all the generations from Abraham to David [are] fourteen generations, and from David to the carrying away into Babylon fourteen generations, and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ fourteen generations.
Mat 1:18 Now the generation of Jesus Christ was attended with these circumstances: His mother Mary being betrothed to Joseph, before they cohabited together, she was found with child from the Holy Spirit.
Mat 1:19 Then Joseph her husband being a just man, and not willing to expose her publicly, designed to put her away privately.
Mat 1:20 And as he was revolving the matter in his mind, behold, an angel of the Lord in a dream appeared unto him, saying, Joseph, son of David, fear not to take Mary for thy wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.
Mat 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.
Mat 1:22 Now the whole of this was done, that what was spoken of the Lord, by the prophet, might be fulfilled, saying,
Mat 1:23 "A virgin shall be with child and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel," which is being interpreted, God with us.
Mat 1:24 Then Joseph when arisen from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took his wife;
Mat 1:25 and he knew her not, until she had brought forth her son, the first begotten, and he called his name Jesus.
