5 And Salmon begat Boaz of Rahab. And Boaz begat Obed of Ruth. And Obed begat Jesse.
6 And Jesse begat David the King. And David the King begat Solomon of her that was the wife of Uriah.

11 And Josiah begat Jakim. And Jakim [e]begat Jeconiah and his brethren about the time they were carried away to Babylon.
12 And after they were carried away into Babylon, Jeconiah begat Shealtiel. And Shealtiel be-gat Zerubbabel.

16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, that is called Christ.
17 So [f]all the generations from Abraham to David, are fourteen generations. And from David until they were carried away into Babylon, fourteen generations: and after they were carried away into Babylon until Christ, fourteen generations.
18 ¶ Now the birth of [g]Jesus Christ was thus, When as his mother Mary was betrothed 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 public example, was minded to put her away secretly.
20 But while he thought these things, behold, the Angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, the son of David, fear not to [h]take Mary thy [i]wife: for that which is [j]conceived in her, is of the holy Ghost.
22 And all this was done that it might be fulfilled, which is spoken of the Lord by the Prophet, saying,
23 Behold, a [m]virgin shall be with child, and shall bear a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which is by interpretation, God with us.
24 ¶ Then Joseph being raised from sleep, did as the Angel of the Lord had enjoined him, and took his wife.
25 But he knew her not, [n]till she had brought forth her first born son, and he called his name JESUS.
