040:Book 40


040: Matthew Book 40


040:Matthew 001:001
The book of the generation of Jesus Christ,
the son of David,
the son of Abraham.


040:001:002
Abraham begat Isaac;
and Isaac begat Jacob;
and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;


040:001:003
And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar;
and Phares begat Esrom;
and Esrom begat Aram;


040:001:004
And Aram begat Aminadab;
and Aminadab begat Naasson;
and Naasson begat Salmon;


040:001:005
And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab;
and Booz begat Obed of Ruth;
and Obed begat Jesse;


040:001:006
And Jesse begat David the king;
and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;


040:001:007
And Solomon begat Roboam;
and Roboam begat Abia;
and Abia begat Asa;


040:001:008
And Asa begat Josaphat;
and Josaphat begat Joram;
and Joram begat Ozias;


040:001:009
And Ozias begat Joatham;
and Joatham begat Achaz;
and Achaz begat Ezekias;


040:001:010
And Ezekias begat Manasses;
and Manasses begat Amon;
and Amon begat Josias;


040:001:011
And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren,
about the time they were carried away to Babylon:


040:001:012
And after they were brought to Babylon,
Jechonias begat Salathiel;
and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;


040:001:013
And Zorobabel begat Abiud;
and Abiud begat Eliakim;
and Eliakim begat Azor;


040:001:014
And Azor begat Sadoc;
and Sadoc begat Achim;
and Achim begat Eliud;


040:001:015
And Eliud begat Eleazar;
and Eleazar begat Matthan;
and Matthan begat Jacob;


040:001:016
And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary,
of whom was born Jesus,
who is called Christ.


040:001:017
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.


040:001:018
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.


040:001:019
Then Joseph her husband,
being a just man,
and not willing to make her a publick example,
was minded to put her away privily.


040:001:020
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.


040:001:021
And she shall bring forth a son,
and thou shalt call his name JESUS:
for he shall save his people from their sins.


040:001:022
Now all this was done,
that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet,
saying,


040:001:023
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.


040:001:024
Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him,
and took unto him his wife:


040:001:025
And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son:
and he called his name JESUS.
