Matthew 1:1-25

1 (1:1) AN account of the birth of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. 2 Abraham begat Isaac, and Isaac begat Jacob, and Jacob begat Judah and his brothers; 3 and Judah begat Pharez and Zarah by Thamar; and Pharez begat Hezron, and Hezron begat Ram, 4 and Ram begat Aminadab, and Aminadab begat Nashon, and Nashon begat Salmon, 5 and Salmon begat Boaz by Rahab, and Boaz begat Obed by Ruth, and Obed begat Jesse, 6 and Jesse begat David the king. (1:2) And David begat Solomon by the wife of Uriah, 7 and Solomon begat Rehoboam, and Rehoboam begat Abijah, and Abijah begat Asa, 8 and Asa begat Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat begat Jehoram, and Jehoram begat Uzziah, 9 and Uzziah begat Jotham, and Jotham begat Ahaz, and Ahaz begat Hezekiah, 10 and Hezekiah begat Manassah, and Manassah begat Amon, and Amon begat Josiah, 11 and Josiah begat Jechoniah and his brothers at the Babylonian exile. 12 (1:3) After the Babylonian exile, Jechoniah begat Shealtiel, and Shealtiel begat Zerubabel, 13 and Zerubabel begat Abiud, and Abiud begat Eliakim, and Eliakim begat Azar, 14 and Azar begat Zadoc, and Zadoc begat Achim, and Achim begat Eliud, 15 and Eliud begat Eleazar, and Eleazar begat Matthan, and Matthan begat Jacob, 16 and Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, called Christ. 17 All the generations therefore, from Abraham to David, are fourteen generations; and from David to the Babylonian exile, fourteen generations; and from the Babylonian exile to the Christ, fourteen generations. 18 (1:4) The birth of Christ was thus. His mother Mary having been espoused to Joseph, before they came together, was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit. 19 But Joseph her husband being a righteous man, and not wishing to make her an example, was designing to put her away privately. 20 But while he was thinking of these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, son of David, fear not to take Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is by the Holy Spirit, 21 and she shall bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he shall save his people from their sins. 22 (1:5) But all this was done, that the word of the Lord might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying; 23 Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bear a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel; which is interpreted, God is with us. 24 And when Joseph awoke from his sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him, and took his wife, 25 and knew her not till she bore a son, and he called his name Jesus.

1 Timothy 1:4

4 nor attend to myths or interminable genealogies, which occasion disputes rather than a dispensation of God by faith, [do.]

Titus 3:9

9 But foolish questions, and genealogies, and strifes and contentions about the law, avoid; for they are unprofitable and vain.
