8Juda, thee shall thy brethren praise: thy hand shall be on the necks of thy enemies; the sons of thy father shall bow down to thee.9Juda is a lion’s whelp: to the prey, my son, thou art gone up: resting thou hast couched as a lion, and as a lioness, who shall rouse him?10The sceptre shall not be taken away from Juda, nor a ruler from his thigh, till he come that is to be sent, and he shall be the expectation of nations.
1The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham:2Abraham begot Isaac. And Isaac begot Jacob. And Jacob begot Judas and his brethren.3And Judas begot Phares and Zara of Thamar. And Phares begot Esron. And Esron begot Aram.4And Aram begot Aminadab. And Aminadab begot Naasson. And Naasson begot Salmon.5And Salmon begot Booz of Rahab. And Booz begot Obed of Ruth. And Obed begot Jesse.6And Jesse begot David the king. And David the king begot Solomon, of her that had been the wife of Urias.7And Solomon begot Roboam. And Roboam begot Abia. And Abia begot Asa.8And Asa begot Josaphat. And Josaphat begot Joram. And Joram begot Ozias.9And Ozias begot Joatham. And Joatham begot Achaz. And Achaz begot Ezechias.10And Ezechias begot Manasses. And Manasses begot Amon. And Amon begot Josias.11And Josias begot Jechonias and his brethren in the transmigration of Babylon.12And after the transmigration of Babylon, Jechonias begot Salathiel. And Salathiel begot Zorobabel.13And Zorobabel begot Abiud. And Abiud begot Eliacim. And Eliacim begot Azor.14And Azor begot Sadoc. And Sadoc begot Achim. And Achim begot Eliud.15And Eliud begot Eleazar. And Eleazar begot Mathan. And Mathan begot Jacob.16And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.17So all the generations from Abraham to David, are fourteen generations. And from David to the transmigration of Babylon, are fourteen generations: and from the transmigration of Babylon to Christ are fourteen generations.
