1 The book of the agenealogy 1of Jesus Christ, bthe Son of David, cthe Son of Abraham:

dAbraham begot Isaac, eIsaac begot Jacob, and Jacob begot fJudah and his brothers. gJudah begot Perez and Zerah by Tamar, hPerez begot Hezron, and Hezron begot Ram. Ram begot Amminadab, Amminadab begot Nahshon, and Nahshon begot Salmon. Salmon begot iBoaz by Rahab, Boaz begot Obed by Ruth, Obed begot Jesse, and jJesse begot David the king.

kDavid the king begot Solomon by her 2who had been the wife of Uriah. lSolomon begot Rehoboam, Rehoboam begot mAbijah, and Abijah begot 3Asa. Asa begot nJehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat begot Joram, and Joram begot oUzziah. Uzziah begot Jotham, Jotham begot pAhaz, and Ahaz begot Hezekiah. 10 qHezekiah begot Manasseh, Manasseh begot 4Amon, and Amon begot rJosiah. 11 sJosiah begot 5Jeconiah and his brothers about the time they were tcarried away to Babylon.

12 And after they were brought to Babylon, uJeconiah begot Shealtiel, and Shealtiel begot vZerubbabel. 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 wMary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ.

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