Matteusarguðspjall 1 Icelandic Bible (ICELAND)
1 Ættartala Jesú Krists, sonar Davíðs, sonar Abrahams.
2 Abraham gat Ísak, Ísak gat Jakob, Jakob gat Júda og bræður hans.
3 Júda gat Peres og Sara við Tamar, Peres gat Esrom, Esrom gat Ram,
4 Ram gat Ammínadab, Ammínadab gat Nakson, Nakson gat Salmon,
5 Salmon gat Bóas við Rahab, og Bóas gat Óbeð við Rut. Óbeð gat Ísaí,
6 og Ísaí gat Davíð konung. Davíð gat Salómon við konu Úría,
7 Salómon gat Róbóam, Róbóam gat Abía, Abía gat Asaf,
8 Asaf gat Jósafat, Jósafat gat Jóram, Jóram gat Ússía,
9 Ússía gat Jótam, Jótam gat Akas, Akas gat Esekía,
10 Esekía gat Manasse, Manasse gat Amos, Amos gat Jósía.
11 Jósía gat Jekonja og bræður hans á tíma herleiðingarinnar til Babýlonar.
12 Eftir herleiðinguna til Babýlonar gat Jekonja Sealtíel, Sealtíel gat Serúbabel,
13 Serúbabel gat Abíúd, Abíúd gat Eljakím, Eljakím gat Asór,
14 Asór gat Sadók, Sadók gat Akím, Akím gat Elíúd,
15 Elíúd gat Eleasar, Eleasar gat Mattan, Mattan gat Jakob,
16 og Jakob gat Jósef, mann Maríu, en hún ól Jesú, sem kallast Kristur.
17 Þannig eru alls fjórtán ættliðir frá Abraham til Davíðs, fjórtán ættliðir frá Davíð fram að herleiðingunni til Babýlonar og fjórtán ættliðir frá herleiðingunni til Krists.
18 Fæðing Jesú Krists varð með þessum atburðum: María, móðir hans, var föstnuð Jósef. En áður en þau komu saman, reyndist hún þunguð af heilögum anda.
19 Jósef, festarmaður hennar, sem var grandvar, vildi ekki gjöra henni opinbera minnkun og hugðist skilja við hana í kyrrþey.
20 Hann hafði ráðið þetta með sér, en þá vitraðist honum engill Drottins í draumi og sagði: "Jósef, sonur Davíðs, óttastu ekki að taka til þín Maríu, heitkonu þína. Barnið, sem hún gengur með, er af heilögum anda.
21 Hún mun son ala, og hann skaltu láta heita Jesú, því að hann mun frelsa lýð sinn frá syndum þeirra."
22 Allt varð þetta til þess, að rætast skyldu orð Drottins fyrir munn spámannsins:
23 "Sjá, mærin mun þunguð verða og son ala. Nafn hans mun vera Immanúel," það þýðir: Guð með oss.
24 Þegar Jósef vaknaði, gjörði hann eins og engill Drottins hafði boðið honum og tók konu sína til sín.
25 Hann kenndi hennar ekki fyrr en hún hafði alið son. Og hann gaf honum nafnið JESÚS.
Matthew 1 New International Version (NIV)

2 Abraham was the father of Isaac,
Isaac the father of Jacob,
Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers,
3 Judah the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar,
Perez the father of Hezron,
Hezron the father of Ram,
4 Ram the father of Amminadab,
Amminadab the father of Nahshon,
Nahshon the father of Salmon,
5 Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab,
Boaz the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth,
Obed the father of Jesse,
6 and Jesse the father of King David.
David was the father of Solomon, whose mother had been Uriah’s wife,
7 Solomon the father of Rehoboam,
Rehoboam the father of Abijah,
Abijah the father of Asa,
8 Asa the father of Jehoshaphat,
Jehoshaphat the father of Jehoram,
Jehoram the father of Uzziah,
9 Uzziah the father of Jotham,
Jotham the father of Ahaz,
Ahaz the father of Hezekiah,
10 Hezekiah the father of Manasseh,
Manasseh the father of Amon,
Amon the father of Josiah,
11 and Josiah the father of Jeconiah[c] and his brothers at the time of the exile to Babylon.
12 After the exile to Babylon:
Jeconiah was the father of Shealtiel,
Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel,
13 Zerubbabel the father of Abihud,
Abihud the father of Eliakim,
Eliakim the father of Azor,
14 Azor the father of Zadok,
Zadok the father of Akim,
Akim the father of Elihud,
15 Elihud the father of Eleazar,
Eleazar the father of Matthan,
Matthan the father of Jacob,
16 and Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, and Mary was the mother of Jesus who is called the Messiah.
17 Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Messiah.
Joseph Accepts Jesus as His Son
18 This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about[d]: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. 19 Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet[e] did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.
20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,[f] because he will save his people from their sins.”
22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23 “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”[g] (which means “God with us”).
24 When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25 But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.
