1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. 1 A record of the genealogy of Jesus Christ the son of David, the son of Abraham:
2 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judah and his brethren; 2 Abraham was the father of Isaac, Isaac the father of Jacob, Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers,
3 and Judah begat Perez and Zerah of Tamar; and Perez begat Hezron; and Hezron begat Ram; 3 Judah the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar, Perez the father of Hezron, Hezron the father of Ram,
4 and Ram begat Amminadab; and Amminadab begat Nahshon; and Nahshon begat Salmon; 4 Ram the father of Amminadab, Amminadab the father of Nahshon, Nahshon the father of Salmon,
5 and Salmon begat Boaz of Rahab; and Boaz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse; 5 Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab, Boaz the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth, Obed the father of Jesse,
6 and Jesse begat David the king. And David begat Solomon of her [that had been the wife] of Uriah; 6 and Jesse the father of King David. David was the father of Solomon, whose mother had been Uriah's wife,
7 and Solomon begat Rehoboam; and Rehoboam begat Abijah; and Abijah begat Asa; 7 Solomon the father of Rehoboam, Rehoboam the father of Abijah, Abijah the father of Asa,
8 and Asa begat Jehoshaphat; and Jehoshaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Uzziah; 8 Asa the father of Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat the father of Jehoram, Jehoram the father of Uzziah,
9 and Uzziah begat Jotham; and Jotham begat Ahaz; and Ahaz begat Hezekiah; 9 Uzziah the father of Jotham, Jotham the father of Ahaz, Ahaz the father of Hezekiah,
10 and Hezekiah begat Manasseh; and Manasseh begat Amon; and Amon begat Josiah; 10 Hezekiah the father of Manasseh, Manasseh the father of Amon, Amon the father of Josiah,
11 and Josiah begat Jechoniah and his brethren, at the time of the carrying away to Babylon. 11 and Josiah the father of Jeconiah and his brothers at the time of the exile to Babylon.
12 And after the carrying away to Babylon, Jechoniah begat Shealtiel; and Shealtiel begat Zerubbabel; 12 After the exile to Babylon: Jeconiah was the father of Shealtiel, Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel,
13 and Zerubbabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor; 13 Zerubbabel the father of Abiud, Abiud the father of Eliakim, Eliakim the father of Azor,
14 and Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud; 14 Azor the father of Zadok, Zadok the father of Akim, Akim the father of Eliud,
15 and Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob; 15 Eliud the father of Eleazar, Eleazar the father of Matthan, Matthan the father of Jacob,
16 and Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ. 16 and Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
17 So all the generations from Abraham unto David are fourteen generations; and from David unto the carrying away to Babylon fourteen generations; and from the carrying away to Babylon unto the Christ fourteen generations. 17 Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Christ.
18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. 18 This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit.
19 And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily. 19 Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.
20 But when he thought on these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.
21 And she shall bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name JESUS; for it is he that shall save his people from their sins. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins."
22 Now all this is come to pass, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:
23 Behold, the 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. 23 "The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel"--which means, "God with us."
24 And Joseph arose from his sleep, and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took unto him his wife; 24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife.
25 and knew her not till she had brought forth a son: and he called his name JESUS. 25 But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.
