'THE book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.



Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and 3 Jacob begat Judah and his brethren; "and Judah begat Perez and Zerah of Tamar; and Perez begat Hezron; 4 and Hezron begat 3 Ram; "and 3 Ram begat Amminadab; and Amminadab begat Nahshon; and Nahshon begat 5 Salmon; and Salmon begat Boaz of Rahab; and Boaz (6 begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse; "and Jesse begat David the king.

And David begat Solomon of her that had been the wife 7 of Uriah; "and Solomon begat Rehoboam; and Reho8 boam begat Abijah; and Abijah begat Asa; "and 'Asa

begat Jehoshaphat; and Jehoshaphat begat Joram; and 9 Joram begat Uzziah; "and Uzziah begat Jotham; and 10 Jotham begat Ahaz; and Ahaz begat Hezekiah; "and Hezekiah begat Manasseh; and Manasseh begat 5Amon ; and Amon begat Josiah; "and Josiah begat Jechoniah and his brethren, at the time of the "carrying away to Babylon.

So all the generations from Abraham unto David are fourteen generations; and from David unto the 1carrying away to Babylon fourteen generations; and from the 'carrying away to Babylon unto the Christ fourteen generations.


Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. "And Joseph her husband, being a righteous 'man, and not willing to make her a public example, was 20 minded to put her away privily. "But when he thought on these things, behold, an 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 21 is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. "And she shall bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name JESUS; for it is he that shall save his people from their 22 sins. "Now all this is come to pass, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying,



"Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and shall bring

forth a son,

"And Joseph

And they shall call his name 6 Immanuel;
which is, being interpreted, God with us.

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judæa in the
days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east
2 came to Jerusalem, "saying, "Where is he that is born.
King of the Jews? for we saw his star in the east, and
(3 are come to worship him. "And when Herod the king
heard it, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
4) "And gathering together all the chief priests and scribes
of the people, he inquired of them where the Christ should
be born. "And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of
Judæa for thus it is written by the prophet,



"And thou Bethlehem, land of Judah,

Art in no wise least among the princes of Judah;
For out of thee shall come forth a governor,
Which shall be shepherd of my people Israel.

(8) of them carefully what time the star appeared. "And he
sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search out
carefully concerning the young child; and when ye have
found him, bring me word, that I also may come and
(9) worship him. "And they, having heard the king, went
their way;
and lo, the star, which they saw in the east,
went before them, till it came and stood over where the

10 young child was. "And when they saw the star, they
(I rejoiced with exceeding great joy. "And they came into
the house and saw the young child with Mary his mother;
and they fell down and 'worshipped him; and opening
their treasures they offered unto him gifts, gold and
12 frankincense and myrrh. "And being warned of God in a
