Matthew Chapter 1

Mat 1:1 The History of Jesus Christ, Son of David, Son of Abraham.
Mat 1:2 Abraham begot Isaac. Isaac begot Jacob. Jacob begot Judah and his brothers.
Mat 1:3 Judah had Pharez and Zarah by Tamar. Pharez begot Ezrom. Ezrom begot Aram.
Mat 1:4 Aram begot Aminidab. Aminidab begot Nashon. Nashon begot Salmon.
Mat 1:5 Salmon had Boaz by Rahab. Boaz had Obed by Ruth. Obed begot Jesse.
Mat 1:6 Jesse begot David the king. David the king had Solomon, by her [who had been the wife] of Uriah.
Mat 1:7 Solomon begot Rehoboam. Rehoboam begot Abia. Abia begot Asa.
Mat 1:8 Asa begot Jehoshaphat. Jehoshaphat begot Joram. Joram begot Uzziah.
Mat 1:9 Uzziah begot Jotham. Jotham begot Ahaz. Ahaz begot Hezekiah.
Mat 1:10 Hezekiah begot Manasseh. Manasseh begot Amon. Amon begot Josiah.
Mat 1:11 Josiah had Jeconiah and his brothers, about the time of the migration into Babylon.
Mat 1:12 After the migration into Babylon, Jeconiah begot Salathiel. Salathiel begot Zerubbabel.
Mat 1:13 Zerubbabel begot Abiud. Abiud begot Eliakim. Eliakim begot Azor.
Mat 1:14 Azor begot Zadoc. Zadoc begot Achim. Achim begot Eliud.
Mat 1:15 Eliud begot Eleazar. Eleazar begot Matthan. Matthan begot Jacob.
Mat 1:16 Jacob begot Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
Mat 1:17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen; from David till the migration into Babylon, fourteen; from David till the migration into Babylon to the Messiah, fourteen.
Mat 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ happened thus: Mary his mother had been espoused to Joseph; but before they came together, she proved to be with child by the Holy Spirit.
Mat 1:19 Joseph her husband being a virtuous man, and unwilling to expose her, intended to divorce her privately.
Mat 1:20 But while he was thinking upon this, an angel of the Lord appearing to him in a dream, said, Joseph, son of David, scruple not to take home Mary your wife; for her pregnancy is from the Holy Spirit.
Mat 1:21 And she shall bear a son, whom you shall call Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.
Mat 1:22 In all this what the Lord had spoken by the Prophet was verified,
Mat 1:23 "Behold the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, who shall be called Immanuel;" which signifies, God with us.
Mat 1:24 When Joseph awoke, he did as the messenger of the Lord had commanded him, and took home his wife;
Mat 1:25 but knew her not, until she had brought forth her first born son, whom he named Jesus.
