1 Liber generationis Iesu Christi filii David filii Abraham.
2 Abraham genuit Isaac, Isaac autem genuit Iacob, Iacob autem genuit Iudam et fratres eius,
3 Iudas autem genuit Phares et Zara de Thamar, Phares autem genuit Esrom, Esrom autem genuit Aram,
4 Aram autem genuit Aminadab, Aminadab autem genuit Naasson, Naasson autem genuit Salmon,
5 Salmon autem genuit Booz de Rahab, Booz autem genuit Obed ex Ruth, Obed autem genuit Iesse,
6 Iesse autem genuit David regem. David autem genuit Salomonem ex ea, quae fuit Uriae,
7 Salomon autem genuit Roboam, Roboam autem genuit Abiam, Abia autem genuit Asa,
8 Asa autem genuit Iosaphat, Iosaphat autem genuit Ioram, Ioram autem genuit Oziam,
9 Ozias autem genuit Ioatham, Ioatham autem genuit Achaz, Achaz autem genuit Ezechiam,
10 Ezechias autem genuit Manassen, Manasses autem genuit Amon, Amon autem genuit Iosiam,
11 Iosias autem genuit Iechoniam et fratres eius in transmigratione Babylonis.
12 Et post transmigrationem Babylonis Iechonias genuit Salathiel, Salathiel autem genuit Zorobabel,
13 Zorobabel autem genuit Abiud, Abiud autem genuit Eliachim, Eliachim autem genuit Azor,
14 Azor autem genuit Sadoc, Sadoc autem genuit Achim, Achim autem genuit Eliud,
15 Eliud autem genuit Eleazar, Eleazar autem genuit Matthan, Matthan autem genuit Iacob,
16 Iacob autem genuit Ioseph virum Mariae, de qua natus est Iesus, qui vocatur Christus.
17 Omnes ergo generationes ab Abraham usque ad David generationes quattuordecim; et a David usque ad transmigrationem Babylonis generationes quattuordecim; et a transmigratione Babylonis usque ad Christum generationes quattuordecim.
18 Iesu Christi autem generatio sic erat. Cum esset desponsata mater eius Maria Ioseph, antequam convenirent inventa est in utero habens de Spiritu Sancto.
19 Ioseph autem vir eius, cum esset iustus et nollet eam traducere, voluit occulte dimittere eam.
20 Haec autem eo cogitante, ecce angelus Domini in somnis apparuit ei dicens: "Ioseph fili David, noli timere accipere Mariam coniugem tuam. Quod enim in ea natum est, de Spiritu Sancto est;
21 pariet autem filium, et vocabis nomen eius Iesum: ipse enim salvum faciet populum suum a peccatis eorum".
22 Hoc autem totum factum est, ut adimpleretur id, quod dictum est a Domino per prophetam dicentem:
23 "Ecce, virgo in utero habebit et pariet filium, et vocabunt nomen eius Emmanuel ", quod est interpretatum Nobiscum Deus.
24 Exsurgens autem Ioseph a somno fecit, sicut praecepit ei angelus Domini, et accepit coniugem suam;
25 et non cognoscebat eam, donec peperit filium, et vocavit nomen eius Iesum.
King James Version
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 she shall bring forth a son, 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.
