MATTITHYAHU (Matthew) 1:1-6; 16-25

Matthew 1

1  The book of the genealogy of יהושע ha'Mashiaḥ, Bĕn of Dawiḏ, Bĕn of Aḇraham:

2  Aḇraham brought forth Yitsḥaq, and Yitsḥaq brought forth Yaʽaqoḇ, and Yaʽaqoḇ brought forth Yahuḏah and his brothers.

3  And Yahuḏah brought forth Perets and Zeraḥ by Tamar, and Perets brought forth Ḥetsron, and Ḥetsron brought forth Ram.

4  And Ram brought forth Amminaḏaḇ, and Amminaḏaḇ brought forth Naḥshon, and Naḥshon brought forth Salmon.

5  And Salmon brought forth Boʽaz by Raḥaḇ, and Boʽaz brought forth Oḇĕḏ by Ruth, and Oḇĕḏ brought forth Yishai.

6  And Yishai brought forth Dawiḏ the sovereign, and Dawiḏ the sovereign brought forth Shelomoh by Uriyah's wife.

16 - 25

16  And Yaʽaqoḇ brought forth Yosĕph the husband of Miryam, of whom was born יהושע who is called Mashiaḥ.

17  So all the generations from Aḇraham to Dawiḏ were fourteen generations, and from Dawiḏ until the exile to Baḇel were fourteen generations, and from the exile to Baḇel until Mashiaḥ were fourteen generations.

18  But the birth of יהושע ha'Mashiaḥ was as follows: After His mother Miryam was engaged to Yosĕph, before they came together, she was found to be pregnant from the Ruaḥ ha'Qodesh.

19  And Yosĕph her husband, being righteous, and not wanting to make a show of her, had in mind to put her away secretly.

20  But while he thought about this, see, a messenger of יהוה appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Yosĕph, Bĕn of Dawiḏ, do not be afraid to take Miryam as your wife, for that which is in her was brought forth from the Ruaḥ ha'Qodesh.

21  "And she shall give birth to a Bĕn, and you shall call His Name יהושע for He shall save His people from their sins."

22  And all this came to be in order to fill what was spoken by יהוה through the naḇi, saying,

23  "See, a maiden shall conceive, and she shall give birth to a Bĕn, and they shall call His Name Immanu'ĕl," which translated, means, "Ĕl with us."

24  And Yosĕph, awaking from his sleep, did as the messenger of יהוה commanded him and took his wife,

25  but knew her not until she gave birth to her Bĕn, the first-born. And he called His Name יהושע.
