And David was the father of Solomon by the wife of Uriah, MSG 6 Jesse had David, and David became king. David had Solomon (Uriah's wife was the mother), ESV 7 and Solomon the father of Rehoboam, and Rehoboam the father of Abijah, and Abijah the father of Asaph, MSG 7 Solomon had Rehoboam, Rehoboam had Abijah, Abijah had Asa, ESV 8 and Asaph the father of Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat the father of Joram, and Joram the father of Uzziah, MSG 8 Asa had Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat had Joram, Joram had Uzziah, ESV 9 and Uzziah the father of Jotham, and Jotham the father of Ahaz, and Ahaz the father of Hezekiah, MSG 9 Uzziah had Jotham, Jotham had Ahaz, Ahaz had Hezekiah, ESV 10 and Hezekiah the father of Manasseh, and Manasseh the father of Amos, and Amos the father of Josiah, MSG 10 Hezekiah had Manasseh, Manasseh had Amon, Amon had Josiah, ESV 11 and Josiah the father of Jechoniah and his brothers, at the time of the deportation to Babylon. MSG 11 Josiah had Jehoiachin and his brothers, and then the people were taken into the Babylonian exile. ESV 12 And after the deportation to Babylon: Jechoniah was the father of Shealtiel, and Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel, MSG 12 When the Babylonian exile ended, Jehoiachin had Shealtiel, Shealtiel had Zerubbabel, ESV 13 and Zerubbabel the father of Abiud, and Abiud the father of Eliakim, and Eliakim the father of Azor, MSG 13 Zerubbabel had Abiud, Abiud had Eliakim, Eliakim had Azor, ESV 14 and Azor the father of Zadok, and Zadok the father of Achim, and Achim the father of Eliud, MSG 14 Azor had Zadok, Zadok had Achim, Achim had Eliud, ESV 15 and Eliud the father of Eleazar, and Eleazar the father of Matthan, and Matthan the father of Jacob, MSG 15 Eliud had Eleazar, Eleazar had Matthan, Matthan had Jacob, ESV 16 and Jacob the father of Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, who is called Christ. MSG 16 Jacob had Joseph, Mary's husband, the Mary who gave birth to Jesus, the Jesus who was called Christ. ESV 17 So all the generations from Abraham to David were fourteen generations, and from David to the deportation to Babylon fourteen generations, and from the deportation to Babylon to the Christ fourteen generations. MSG 17 There were fourteen generations from Abraham to David, another fourteen from David to the Babylonian exile, and yet another fourteen from the Babylonian exile to Christ. The Birth of Jesus ESV 18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. MSG 18 The birth of Jesus took place like this. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. Before they came to the marriage bed, Joseph discovered she was pregnant. (It was by the Holy Spirit, but he didn't know that.) ESV 19 And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. MSG 19 Joseph, chagrined but noble, determined to take care of things quietly so Mary would not be disgraced. ESV 20 But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. MSG 20 While he was trying to figure a way out, he had a dream. God's angel spoke in the dream: "Joseph, son of David, don't hesitate to get married. Mary's pregnancy is Spirit-conceived. God's Holy Spirit has made her pregnant. ESV 21 She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins." MSG 21 She will bring a son to birth, and when she does, you, Joseph, will name him Jesus - 'God saves' - because he will save his people from their sins." ESV 22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: MSG 22 This would bring the prophet's embryonic sermon to full term: ESV 23 "Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel"(which means, God with us). MSG 23 Watch for this - a virgin will get pregnant and bear a son; They will name him Emmanuel (Hebrew for "God is with us"). ESV 24 When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, MSG 24 Then Joseph woke up. He did exactly what God's angel commanded in the dream: He married Mary. ESV 25 but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus. MSG 25 But he did not consummate the marriage until she had the baby. He named the baby Jesus.
