Matthew 1
King James Bible: Purple Letter Edition
1The book of the genealogy {generation} of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham. 2Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren; 3And Judas begat Perez and Zerah of Tamar; and Perez begat Hezron; and Hezron begat Ram; 4And Ram begat Amminadab; and Amminadab begat Nahshon; and Nahshon begat Salmon; 5And Salmon begat Boaz of Rahab; and Boaz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse; 6And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Uriah; 7And Solomon begat Rehoboam; and Rehoboam begat Abijah; and Abijah begat Asa; 8And Asa begat Jehoshaphat; and Jehoshaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Uzziah; 9And Uzziah begat Jotham; and Jotham begat Ahaz; and Ahaz begat Hezekiah; 10And Hezekiah begat Manasseh; and Manasseh begat Amon; and Amon begat Josiah; 11And Josiah begat Jeconiah and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon; 12And after they were brought to Babylon, Jeconiah begat Shealtiel; and Shealtiel begat Zerubbabel; 13And Zerubbabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor; 14And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud; 15And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob; 16And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, Who is called Christ. 17So 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.

18Now the birth of Jesus Christ was in this way {on this wise}: When as His mother, Mary, was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. 19Then Joseph, her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privately {privily}. 20But while he thought on these things, behold, an {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 Spirit . 21And she shall bring forth a Son, and thou shalt call His name JESUS; for He shall save His people from their sins. 22Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord by the prophet, saying, 23Behold, the {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. 24Then Joseph, being raised from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife; 25And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn Son; and he called His name JESUS.
