The Generation of Jesus Christ - Matthew 1

The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. Matthew 1:1   KJV

Matthew 1:2  Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;   

Matthew 1:3  And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;   

Matthew 1:4  And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;   

Matthew 1:5 And Salmon  begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and  Obed begat Jesse;   

Matthew 1:6 And Jesse begat David the king;  and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the  wife of Urias;   

Matthew 1:7  And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa;   

Matthew 1:8  And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias;   

Matthew 1:9  And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias;   

Matthew 1:10  And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias;   

Matthew 1:11 And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren,  about the time they were carried away to Babylon: 

Matthew 1:12  And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat  Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel; 

Matthew 1:13 And  Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and  Eliakim begat Azor; 

Matthew 1:14 And Azor begat Sadoc; and  Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud; 

Matthew 1:15 And  Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and  Matthan begat Jacob; 

Matthew 1:16 And Jacob begat Joseph the  husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called  Christ. 

Matthew 1:17 So all the generations from Abraham to  David are fourteen generations; and from David until the  carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and  from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are  fourteen generations.  

Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise:  When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before  they came together, she was found with child of the Holy  Ghost. 

Matthew 1:19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man,  and not willing to make her a publicc example, was minded  to put her away privily. 

Matthew 1:20 But while he thought on  these things, behold, the 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 Ghost. 

Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth  a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save  his people from their sins. 

Matthew 1:22 Now all this was done,  that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, 

Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with  child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his  name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.  

Matthew 1:24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel  of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:  

Matthew 1:25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her  firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
