RKJNT(i) 1 The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. 2 Abraham was the father of Isaac; and Isaac the father of Jacob; and Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers; 3 And Judah the father of Perez and Zarah by Tamar; and Perez the father of Hezron; and Hezron the father of Ram; 4 And Ram the father of Amminadab; and Amminadab the father of Nahshon; and Nahshon the father of Salma; 5 And Salma the father of Boaz by Rahab; and Boaz the father of Obed by Ruth; and Obed the father of Jesse; 6 And Jesse the father of David the king; and David the king the father of Solomon by her who had been the wife of Uriah; 7 And Solomon the father of Rehoboam; and Rehoboam the father of Abijah; and Abijah the father of Asa; 8 And Asa the father of Jehoshaphat; and Jehoshaphat the father of Joram; and Joram the father of Azariah; 9 And Azariah the father of Jotham; and Jotham the father of Ahaz; and Ahaz the father of Hezekiah; 10 And Hezekiah the father of Manasseh; and Manasseh the father of Amon; and Amon the father of Josiah; 11 And Josiah the father of Jeconiah and his brothers, about the time they were carried away to Babylon: 12 And after the exile to Babylon, Jeconiah became the father of Shealtiel; and Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel; 13 And Zerubbabel the father of Abiud; and Abiud the father of Eliakim; and Eliakim the father of Azor; 14 And Azor the father of Zadok; and Zadok the father of Achim; and Achim the father of Eliud; 15 And Eliud the father of Eleazar; and Eleazar the father of Matthan; and Matthan the father of Jacob; 16 And Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, by whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ. 17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the exile to Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the exile to Babylon to Christ are fourteen generations. 18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ happened in this way: When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to disgrace her, decided to divorce her secretly. 20 But while he thought on 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 of the Holy Spirit. 21 And she shall bring forth a son, and you shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 22 Now all this was done to fulfill that which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, 23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which translated means, God with us. 24 Then Joseph, being raised from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took her as his wife: 25 And kept her a virgin until she had brought forth a son: and he called his name JESUS.
