Mat 1:3 and Judah begat Pharez and Zarah of Tamar; and Pharez begat Hezrom; and Hezrom begat Aram;
Mat 1:4 and Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;
Mat 1:5 and Salmon begat Boaz of Rahab; and Boaz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;
Mat 1:6 and Jesse begat David, the king; and David begat Solomon, of the wife of Uriah;
Mat 1:7 and Solomon begat Rehoboam; and Rehoboam begat Abijah; and Abijah begat Asa;

Mat 1:10 and Hezekiah begat Manasseh; and Manasseh begat Amon; and Amon begat Josiah;
Mat 1:11 and Josiah begat Jechoniah and his brothers upon the removal to Babylon;
Mat 1:12 and, after the removal to Babylon, Jechoniah begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zerubbabel;
Mat 1:13 and Zerubbabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor;

Mat 1:16 and Jacob begat Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, Who is called Christ.
Mat 1:17 All the generations, therefore, from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David to the removal to Babylon, fourteen; and from the removal to Babylon to the Christ, fourteen generations.
Mat 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was thus: His mother Mary having been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child of the Holy Spirit.
Mat 1:19 And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man, and not wishing to make an example of her, purposed privately to divorce her.
Mat 1:20 And, while thinking of these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, fear not to take to yourself Mary your wife; for that which was begotten in her is of the Holy Spirit.
Mat 1:21 And she shall bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus; for He will save His people from their sins."
Mat 1:22 Now all this has come to pass, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying,
Mat 1:23 "Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel," which is, being interpreted, God with us.
Mat 1:24 And Joseph, arising from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord directed him, and took to himself his wife;
Mat 1:25 and he knew her not, until she brought forth a Son, and he called His name Jesus.
