18 But the generation of Christ was thus. When Mary, the mother of Jesus, was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found having of the Holy Ghost in the womb. [Forsooth the generation of Christ was this. When Mary, his mother, was spoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found having in the womb of the Holy Ghost.]

19 And Joseph, her husband, for he was rightful, and would not publish her, he would privily have left her.[a]

20 But while he thought these things, lo! the angel of the Lord appeared to him in sleep, and said [lo! the angel of the Lord appeared in sleep, or sweven, to him, saying], Joseph, the son of David, do not thou dread to take Mary, thy wife; for that thing that is born in her is of the Holy Ghost.

21 And she shall bear a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus; for he shall make his people safe from their sins.

22 For all this thing was done, that it should be fulfilled, that was said of the Lord by a prophet, saying,

23 Lo! a virgin shall have in [the] womb, and she shall bear a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, that is to say [that is interpreted], God with us.

24 And Joseph rose [up] from sleep, and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary, his wife; [Soothly Joseph rising up from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord bade him, and took his wife;]

25 and he knew her not, till she had born her first begotten son, and he called his name Jesus.

  1. Matthew 1:19 Joseph, forsooth, her husband, when he was a just man, or rightful, and would not publish her, would privily forsake her.

Matthew 1 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

This is the account of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son also of Abraham:

Abraham begat Isaac;

Isaac begat Jacob;

Jacob begat Judah and his brethren.

Judah begat Perez and Zerah by Tamar;

Perez begat Hezron;

Hezron begat Ram.

Ram begat Amminadab;

Amminadab begat Nashon;

Nashon begat Salmon.

Salmon begat Boaz by Rahab;

Boaz begat Obed by Ruth;

Obed begat Jesse.

Jesse begat David the king;

David the king begat Solomon, by her who was the wife of Uriah.

Solomon begat Rehoboam;

Rehoboam begat Abijah;

Abijah begat Asa.

Asa begat Jehoshaphat;

Jehoshaphat begat Joram;

Joram begat Uzziah.

Uzziah begat Jotham;

Jotham begat Ahaz;

Ahaz begat Hezekiah.

10 Hezekiah begat Manasseh;

Manasseh begat Amon;

Amon begat Josiah.

11 Josiah begat Jeconiah and his brethren about the time they were carried away to Babylon.

12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jeconiah begat Shealtiel;

Shealtiel begat Zerubbabel.

13 Zerubbabel begat Abiud;

Abiud begat Eliakim;

Eliakim begat Azor.

14 Azor begat Zadok;

Zadok begat Achim;

Achim begat Eliud.

15 Eliud begat Eleazar;

Eleazar begat Matthan;

Matthan begat Jacob.

16 Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born that Jesus that is called Christ.

17 All the generations from Abraham to David are 14 generations. And from David to the captivity of Babylon are 14 generations. And from the captivity of Babylon to Christ are also 14 generations.

18 The birth of Jesus Christ was this way: When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came to dwell together, she was found with child by the Holy Spirit. 19 Then Joseph her husband, being an upright man, and loathe to make an example of her, was minded to put her away quietly. 20 While he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph son of David, fear not to take unto you Mary your wife. For that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 She will bring forth a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. For he will save his people from their sins.

22 All this was done to fulfil that which was spoken about the Lord by the prophet, saying, 23 Behold, a maiden shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel, which is by interpretation, God with us.

24 And Joseph, as soon as he awoke out of sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had bid him, and took his wife unto him, 25 and knew her not till she had brought forth her first son, and called his name Jesus.

Matthew 1 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren; and Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram; and Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon; and Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse; and Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias; and Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa; and Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias; 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.
