 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;

2 Kings 20:21
1 Chronicles 3:13

 11 And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon:

2 Kings 25:11
Jeremiah 27:20
Jeremiah 52:11
Jeremiah 52:15
Daniel 1:2
1 Chronicles 3:15-16

Some read Josias begat Jakim, and Jakim begat Jechonias.

 12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;

1 Chronicles 3:17
Ezra 3:2
Nehemiah 12:1
Haggai 1:1

 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 public example, was minded to put her away privily.

Deuteronomy 24:1

 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.

Genesis 31:24
Isaiah 49:1

 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.

Isaiah 7:14

 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.

Exodus 13:2
