Matthew 1 - English Majority Text Version

The Genealogy of Jesus Christ

1. The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham:

2. Abraham begot Isaac, Isaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot Judah and his brothers.

3. Judah begot Perez and Zerah by Tamar, Perez begot Hezron, and Hezron begot Ram.

4. Ram begot Amminadab, Amminadab begot Nahshon, and Nahshon begot Salmon.

5. Salmon begot Boaz by Rahab, Boaz begot Obed by Ruth, Obed begot Jesse,

6. and Jesse begot David the king. David the king begot Solomon by her who had been the wife of Uriah.

7. Solomon begot Rehoboam, Rehoboam begot Abijah, and Abijah begot Asa.

8. Asa begot Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat begot Joram, and Joram begot Uzziah.

9. Uzziah begot Jotham, Jotham begot Ahaz, and Ahaz begot Hezekiah.

10. Hezekiah begot Manasseh, Manasseh begot Amon, and Amon begot Josiah.

11. Josiah begot Jeconiah and his brothers at the time of the captivity in Babylon.

12. And after the captivity in Babylon, Jeconiah begot Shealtiel, and Shealtiel.

13. Zerubbabel begot Abiud, Abiud begot Eliakim, and Eliakim begot Azor.

14. Azor begot Zadok, Zadok begot Achim, and Achim begot Eliud.

15. Eliud begot Eleazar, Eleazar begot Matthan, and Matthan begot Jacob.

16. And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ.

17. So all the generations from Abraham till David were fourteen generations, from David until the captivity in Babylon were fourteen generations, and from the captivity in Babylon until the Christ were fourteen generations.

Christ Born of Mary

18. Now the birth of Jesus Christ was like this: After His mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found pregnant by the Holy Spirit.

19. Then Joseph her husband, being righteous and not wanting to make her a public example, purposed to put her away secretly.

20. But while he was thinking about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take unto you Mary your wife, for that which is begotten 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 came to pass that the thing spoken by the Lord through the prophet might be fulfilled, saying,

23. "Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel," which is translated, "God with us."

24. Then Joseph, having been aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had ordered him and took to him his wife,

25. but did not know her till she brought forth her firstborn Son. And he called His name JESUS.
