Matthew 1

The Genealogy of Jesus the Messiah

1The [a]record of the genealogy of [b]Jesus [c]the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham:

Abraham [d]was the father of Isaac, [e]Isaac the father of Jacob, and Jacob the father of [f]Judah and his brothers. Judah was the father of Perez and Zerah by Tamar, Perez was the father of Hezron, and Hezron the father of [g]Ram. Ram was the father of Amminadab, Amminadab the father of Nahshon, and Nahshon the father of Salmon. Salmon was the father of Boaz by Rahab, Boaz was the father of Obed by Ruth, and Obed the father of Jesse. Jesse was the father of David the king.

David was the father of Solomon by [h]Bathsheba who had been the wife of Uriah. Solomon was the father of Rehoboam, Rehoboam the father of Abijah, and Abijah the father of [i]Asa. Asa was the father of Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat the father of [j]Joram, and Joram the father of Uzziah. Uzziah was the father of [k]Jotham, Jotham the father of Ahaz, and Ahaz the father of Hezekiah. 10 Hezekiah was the father of Manasseh, Manasseh the father of [l]Amon, and Amon the father of Josiah. 11 Josiah became the father of [m]Jeconiah and his brothers, at the time of the deportation to Babylon.

12 After the deportation to Babylon: Jeconiah became the father of [n]Shealtiel, and Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel. 13 Zerubbabel was the father of [o]Abihud, Abihud the father of Eliakim, and Eliakim the father of Azor. 14 Azor was the father of Zadok, Zadok the father of Achim, and Achim the father of Eliud. 15 Eliud was the father of Eleazar, Eleazar the father of Matthan, and Matthan the father of Jacob. 16 Jacob was the father of Joseph the husband of Mary, by whom Jesus was born, who is called [p]the Messiah.

17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; from David to the deportation to Babylon, fourteen generations; and from the deportation to Babylon to [q]the Messiah, fourteen generations.

Conception and Birth of Jesus

18 Now the birth of Jesus [r]Christ was as follows: when His mother Mary had been [s]betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child by the Holy Spirit. 19 And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man and not wanting to disgrace her, planned [t]to send her away secretly. 20 But when he had considered this, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for [u]the Child who has been [v]conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. 21 She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for [w]He will save His people from their sins.” 22 Now all this [x]took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet: 23 Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name [y]Immanuel,” which translated means, “God with us.” 24 And Joseph [z]awoke from his sleep and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary as his wife, 25 [aa]but kept her a virgin until she gave birth to a Son; and he called His name Jesus.

Matteus 1

Slektstavlen til Jesus

1Dette er forfedrene til Jesus Kristus[a], den lovede kongen, som var etterkommer til kong David og Abraham:

Abraham, Isak og Jakob var far til Juda og brødrene hans. Videre fulgte:

Juda og Peres, som var tvillingbror til Serah,

og moren het Tamar. Så kom: Hesron,

Aram Amminadab, Naksjon,

Salmon, Boas, og moren het Rahab.

Etterpå finner vi: Obed, og moren het Rut, Isai, som ble far til

kong David.

Salomo, som var sønn til Batseba, enken etter Uria. Videre:

Rehabeam, Abia, Asaf,

Josafat, Joram, Ussia, Jotam, Akas, Hiskia,

10 Manasse, Amos,

11 Josia, som var far til Jojakin og hans brødre,

som ble født ved den tiden da folket ble ført bort til fangenskap i Babylon, og Jojakin.

12 Etter å ha blitt ført bort til Babylon, fulgte: Sealtiel, Serubabel,

13 Abiud, Eljakim, Asor,

14 Sadok, Akim, Eliud,

15 Eleasar, Mattan, Jakob,

16 og Josef. Josef var mannen til Maria og hun var mor til Jesus Kristus.

17 Disse personene utgjør 14 slektledd fra Abraham og fram til kong David, 14 slektledd fra kong David og fram til tiden da jødene ble ført bort til Babylon og 14 slektledd fra epoken i Babylon og fram til Jesus Kristus.

Jesus blir født

18 Da Jesus Kristus ble født, gikk det slik til: Hans mor Maria var trolovet og skulle gifte seg med Josef. Men allerede før de var gift, ble hun med barn ved Guds Hellige Ånd.[b] 19 Josef, hennes kommende mann, så da ingen annen utvei enn å skille seg fra henne i stillhet. Han ville leve etter Guds bud, men ønsket ikke å skjemme ut Maria offentlig.[c]

20 Mens han fortsatt grublet på hvordan han skulle løse problemet, viste en Herrens engel seg for ham i en drøm.

Engelen sa: ”Josef, du som er etterkommer av kong David, du skal ikke nøle med å gifte deg med Maria, for det barnet hun bærer, er blitt til ved Guds Hellige Ånd. 21 Hun skal få en sønn, og du skal kalle ham Jesus, for han skal frelse folket sitt fra syndene deres.[d]

22 På denne måten ble det som Gud hadde forutsagt ved profeten Jesaja, til virkelighet: 23 ”Lytt! Den unge jenta skal bli med barn og føde en sønn, og de skal kalle ham Immanuel, som betyr ’Gud er med oss’.”[e]

24 Da Josef våknet, gjorde han som engelen hadde gitt beskjed om, og han giftet seg med Maria. 25 De hadde imidlertid ikke noe seksuelt samliv før sønnen var født. Josef ga ham navnet Jesus.

Notas al pie

  1. 1:1 ”Kristus” betyr ”den salvede” på gresk. Blant Israels folk ble konger, prester og profeter salvet med olje før de begynte oppgaven sin. Gud hadde ved profetene lovet å sende en salvet konge som skulle herske over alle folk. Jødene ventet på at denne kongen skulle gjenopprette Israel som nasjon. Det hebraisk ordet ”Messias” betyr også ”den salvede”.
  2. 1:18 Den jødiske trolovelsen var mer forpliktende enn vår tids forlovelse, og kunne bare brytes ved en skilsmisse, men noe seksuelt samliv fikk ikke forekomme.
  3. 1:19 Josef ville skrive under de nødvendige papirene for skilsmisse, men ikke la Marie bli dømt offentlig og bli steinet, som han kunne ha gjort.
  4. 1:21 Jesus, som er den greske formen av navnet Josva, betyr ”Herren redder”.
  5. 1:23 Se Jesaja 7:14.
