Whiston(i) 1 THE book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. 2 Abraham begat Isaac, and Isaac begat Jacob, and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren, 3 And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar, and Phares begat Esrom, and Esrom begat Aram, 4 And Aram begat Aminadab, and Aminadab begat Nasson, and Nasson begat Salmon 5 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab, and Booz begat Obed of Ruth, and Obed begat Jesse, 6 And Jesse begat David the king, and David the king begat Solomon of her [that had been] the wife of Urias: 7 And Solomon begat Roboam, and Roboam begat Abia, and Abia begat Asa, 8 And Asa begat Josaphat, and Josaphat begat Joram, and Joram begat Ahazias, and Ahazias begat Joas, and Joas begat Amazias, and Amazias begat Ozias, 9 And Ozias begat Joatham, and Joatham begat Achaz, and Achaz begat Ezekias, 10 And Ezekias begat Manasses, and Manasses, begat Amon, and Amon begat Josias, 11 And Josias begat Joakim, and Joakim begat Jechonias and his brethren, at the captivity of Babylon: 12 And after the captivity of Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel, and Salathiel begat Zorobabel, 13 And Zorobabel begat Abiud, and Abiud begat Eliakim, and Eliakim begat Azor, 14 And Azor begat Sadoc, and Sadoc begat Achim, and Achim begat Eliud, 15 And Eliud begat Eleazar, and Eleazar begat Matthan, and Matthan begat Jacob, 16 And Jacob begat Joseph to whom the Virgin Mary was espoused, and bare Jesus Christ. 17 So all the generations from Abraham to David [were] fourteen generations: and from David until the captivity of Babylon, were fourteen generations: and from the captivity of Babylon unto Christ, were fourteen generations, 18 Now the generation of Christ was on this wise, When as Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with Child of the Holy Ghost. 19 Then Joseph her Husband being a righteous Man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. 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: 21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. 22 Now all this was done, that its might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by Isaias the prophet, saying, 23 Behold a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted, is, God with us. 24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: 25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her first-born son; and he called his name Jesus.
