Ang Pulong Sang Dios

Mateo 1

Ang mga Katigulangan ni Jesu-Cristo

1Amo ini ang mga katigulangan ni Jesu-Cristo[a] nga kaliwat ni David. Si David nga ini kaliwat ni Abraham.

Si Abraham amay ni Isaac, si Isaac amay ni Jacob, kag si Jacob amay ni Juda kag sang iya mga utod nga lalaki. Si Juda amay ni Perez kag ni Zera, kag si Tamar ang ila iloy. Si Perez amay ni Hezron, kag si Hezron amay ni Ram.[b] Si Ram amay ni Aminadab, si Aminadab amay ni Nashon, kag si Nashon amay ni Salmon. Si Salmon amay ni Boaz, kag si Rahab ang iya iloy. Si Boaz amay ni Obed, kag si Ruth ang iya iloy. Si Obed amay ni Jesse, kag si Jesse amay ni Haring David.

Si Haring David amay ni Solomon kag ang iya iloy asawa anay ni Uria. Si Solomon amay ni Rehoboam, si Rehoboam amay ni Abia, kag si Abia amay ni Asa. Si Asa amay ni Jehoshafat, si Jehoshafat amay ni Joram, kag si Joram amay ni Uzia. Si Uzia amay ni Jotam, si Jotam amay ni Ahaz, kag si Ahaz amay ni Hezekia. 10 Si Hezekia amay ni Manase, si Manase amay ni Amos,[c] si Amos amay ni Josia, 11 kag si Josia amay ni Jeconia[d] kag sang iya mga utod nga lalaki. Sang sadto nga panahon, ginbihag ang mga taga-Israel pa-Babilonia.

12 Amo ini ang lista sang mga katigulangan ni Jesus sa tapos mabihag ang mga taga-Israel pa-Babilonia: si Jeconia amay ni Shealtiel, si Shealtiel amay ni Zerubabel, 13 si Zerubabel amay ni Abiud, si Abiud amay ni Eliakim, kag si Eliakim amay ni Azor. 14 Si Azor amay ni Zadok, si Zadok amay ni Akim, kag si Akim amay ni Eliud. 15 Si Eliud amay ni Eleazar, si Eleazar amay ni Matan, si Matan amay ni Jacob, 16 si Jacob amay ni Jose nga bana ni Maria. Si Maria amo ang iloy ni Jesus nga ginatawag Cristo. 17 Gani may 14 ka henerasyon halin kay Abraham hasta kay David. Kag may 14 man ka henerasyon halin kay David hasta sa pagbihag sa mga taga-Israel pa-Babilonia. Halin sa pagbihag pa-Babilonia may 14 pa gid ka henerasyon hasta kay Cristo.

Ang Pagkatawo ni Cristo

18 Amo ini ang estorya sang pagkatawo ni Jesu-Cristo: Si Maria nga iya iloy kalaslon na kay Jose. Pero sa wala pa sila mag-upod nasapwan ni Maria nga nagabusong na siya paagi sa Espiritu Santo. 19 Karon, si Jose nga mangin iya bana isa ka matarong nga tawo kag indi siya luyag nga mahuy-an si Maria sa mga tawo. Gani ginpakamaayo niya nga bulagan si Maria sa tago lang. 20 Samtang ginahunahuna ni Jose ang iya himuon, nagpakita sa iya sa damgo ang anghel sang Ginoo nga nagasiling, “Jose, kaliwat ni David, indi ka magkahadlok nga magpangasawa kay Maria, kay nagabusong siya paagi sa Espiritu Santo. 21 Magabata siya sing lalaki kag ngalanan mo ang bata nga Jesus,[e] kay luwason niya ang iya katawhan sa ila mga sala.” 22 Natabo ini agod matuman ang ginsiling sang Ginoo paagi sa propeta nga nagsiling, 23 “Magabusong ang isa ka birhen kag magabata sing lalaki. Kag pagatawgon ang ini nga bata nga Emmanuel”[f] (nga kon sayuron, “Ang Dios kaupod naton”). 24 Gani pagbugtaw ni Jose gintuman niya ang ginsiling sang anghel sang Ginoo, kag ginpangasawa niya si Maria. 25 Pero wala niya gintandog si Maria samtang wala pa ini makabata. Sang nakabata na si Maria, gin-ngalanan ni Jose ang bata nga Jesus.

The Message

Matthew 1

1The family tree of Jesus Christ, David’s son, Abraham’s son:

2-6 Abraham had Isaac,
Isaac had Jacob,
Jacob had Judah and his brothers,
Judah had Perez and Zerah (the mother was Tamar),
Perez had Hezron,
Hezron had Aram,
Aram had Amminadab,
Amminadab had Nahshon,
Nahshon had Salmon,
Salmon had Boaz (his mother was Rahab),
Boaz had Obed (Ruth was the mother),
Obed had Jesse,
Jesse had David,
    and David became king.

6-11 David had Solomon (Uriah’s wife was the mother),
Solomon had Rehoboam,
Rehoboam had Abijah,
Abijah had Asa,
Asa had Jehoshaphat,
Jehoshaphat had Joram,
Joram had Uzziah,
Uzziah had Jotham,
Jotham had Ahaz,
Ahaz had Hezekiah,
Hezekiah had Manasseh,
Manasseh had Amon,
Amon had Josiah,
Josiah had Jehoiachin and his brothers,
    and then the people were taken into the Babylonian exile.

12-16 When the Babylonian exile ended,

Jeconiah had Shealtiel,
Shealtiel had Zerubbabel,
Zerubbabel had Abiud,
Abiud had Eliakim,
Eliakim had Azor,
Azor had Zadok,
Zadok had Achim,
Achim had Eliud,
Eliud had Eleazar,
Eleazar had Matthan,
Matthan had Jacob,
Jacob had Joseph, Mary’s husband,
    the Mary who gave birth to Jesus,
    the Jesus who was called Christ.

17 There were fourteen generations from Abraham to David,
    another fourteen from David to the Babylonian exile,
    and yet another fourteen from the Babylonian exile to Christ.

The Birth of Jesus

18-19 The birth of Jesus took place like this. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph. Before they came to the marriage bed, Joseph discovered she was pregnant. (It was by the Holy Spirit, but he didn’t know that.) Joseph, chagrined but noble, determined to take care of things quietly so Mary would not be disgraced.

20-23 While he was trying to figure a way out, he had a dream. God’s angel spoke in the dream: “Joseph, son of David, don’t hesitate to get married. Mary’s pregnancy is Spirit-conceived. God’s Holy Spirit has made her pregnant. She will bring a son to birth, and when she does, you, Joseph, will name him Jesus—‘God saves’—because he will save his people from their sins.” This would bring the prophet’s embryonic sermon to full term:

Watch for this—a virgin will get pregnant and bear a son;
They will name him Immanuel (Hebrew for “God is with us”).

24-25 Then Joseph woke up. He did exactly what God’s angel commanded in the dream: He married Mary. But he did not consummate the marriage until she had the baby. He named the baby Jesus.
