THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO
I THE book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of
Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his 3 brethren; and Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; 4 and Esrom begat Aram; and Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat 5 Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon; and Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and 6 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 8 Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa; and 9 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 11 Josias ; 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 13 Salathiel begat Zorobabel ; and Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Elia14 kim; and Eliakim begat Azor; and Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; 15 and Achim begat Eliud; and Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; 16 and Matthan begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of 17 whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ. 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.
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 19 the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing 20 to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily. 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 21 wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall
bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name : JESUS: for he shall save his 22 people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which 23 was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with
child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which 24 being interpreted is, God with us. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as 25 the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: and knew her
not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS. 2 NOW when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judæa in the days of Herod the
king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, saying, Where is 2 he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are 3 come to worship him. When Herod the king had heard these things, he was 4 troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. And when he had gathered all the chief
priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ 5 should be born. And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judæa: for thus it is 6 written by the prophet, And thou, Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the
least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that 7 shall 5 rule my people Israel. Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise 8 men, inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared. And he sent them
to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when
I Some read, Josins begat Jakim, 2 Gr. begotten.
4 Or, his name shall be called. 5 Or, feed.
