Matthew 1

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

2 Abraham begat Isaac [Gen21:1,2]; and Isaac begat Jacob [Gen25:24-26]; and Jacob begat Judas [Gen29:35] and his brethren; and Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar [Gen38:29]; and Phares begat Esrom [Gen46:12]; and Esrom begat Aram [Rth4:19]; and Aram begat Aminadab [Rth4:19]; and Aminadab begat Naason [Rth4:20]; and Naason begat Salmon [Rth4:20]; and Salmon begat Booz of Rachab [Rth4:21]; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth [Rth4:21]; and Obed begat Jesse [Rth4:22]; and Jesse begat David the king. [2Sam5:14; 1Chr14:4] [Luk3:41]

3 And David the king begat Solomon of her whom David had taken of Urias [2Sam12:24]; and Solomon begat Roboam [1Chr3:10]; and Roboam begat Abia [1Chr3:10]; and Abia begat Asa [1Chr3:10]; and Asa begat Josaphat [1Chr3:10]; and Josaphat begat Joram [1Chr3:11]; and Joram begat Ozias [1Chr3:11]; and Ozias begat Joatham [1Chr3:11]; and Joatham begat Achaz [1Chr3:13]; and Achaz begat Ezekias [1Chr3:13]; and Ezekias begat Manasses [1Chr3:13]; and Manasses begat Amon [1Chr3:14]; and Amon begat Josias [1Chr3:14]; and Josias begat Jechonias [1Chr3:15] and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon.

4 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel [1Chr3:17]; and Salathiel begat Zorobable; and Zorobable begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor; and Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud; and Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, as the prophets have written, who is called Christ.

5 So all the generations from Abraham to David, were fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon, were fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon until Christ, were fourteen generations.
