1 The Book of the Generation of Jesus Christ, Son of David, Son of Abraham.
2 Abraham begot Isaac; and Isaac begot Jacob; and Jacob begot Judah and his brothers;
3 and Judah begot Perez and Zerah from Tamar; and Perez begot Hezron; and Hezron begot Ram;
4 and Ram begot Amminadab; and Amminadab begot Nahshon; and Nahshon begot Salmon;
5 and Salmon begot Boaz from Rahab; and Boaz begot Obed from Ruth; and Obed begot Jesse;
6 and Jesse begot David the king. And David begot Solomon from the wife of Uriah;
7 and Solomon begot Rehoboam; and Rehoboam begot Abijah; and Abijah begot Asaph;
8 and Asaph begot Jehoshaphat; and Jehoshaphat begot Joram; and Joram begot Uzziah;
9 and Uzziah begot Jotham; and Jotham begot Ahaz; and Ahaz begot Hezekiah;
10 and Hezekiah begot Manasseh; and Manasseh begot Amos; and Amos begot Josiah;
11 and Josiah begot Jehoiachin and his brothers at the Babylonian Exile.
12 And after the Babylonian Exile, Jehoiachin begot Shealtiel; and Shealtiel begot Zerubbabel;
13 and Zerubbabel begot Abiud; and Abiud begot Eliakim; and Eliakim begot Azor;
14 and Azor begot Zadok; and Zadok begot Achim; and Achim begot Eliud;
15 and Eliud begot Eleazar; and Eleazar begot Matthan; and Matthan begot Jacob;
16 and Jacob begot Joseph; and Joseph begot Jesus, who is called Christ, from Mary.
17 So all the generations from Abraham to David were fourteen generations, and from David to the Babylonian Exile were fourteen generations, and from the Babylonian Exile to the Christ were fourteen generations.
