Matthew  chapter 1

  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 Naasson;
  and Naasson 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 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 Jechonias and his brethren, about
  the time they were carried away to Babylon:
  12 And after they were brought to 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 the husband of Mary, of 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
  carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations;
  and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ
  are fourteen generations.
  18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise:
  When as his mother 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 just 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 thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall
  save his people from their sins.
  22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled
  which was spoken of the Lord by 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 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
  firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS. Matthew chapter 2
