New International Version

Matthew 1:1-25

The Genealogy of Jesus the Messiah

1This is the genealogy1:1 Or is an account of the origin of Jesus the Messiah1:1 Or Jesus Christ. Messiah (Hebrew) and Christ (Greek) both mean Anointed One; also in verse 18. the son of David, the son of Abraham:

2Abraham was the father of Isaac,

Isaac the father of Jacob,

Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers,

3Judah the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar,

Perez the father of Hezron,

Hezron the father of Ram,

4Ram the father of Amminadab,

Amminadab the father of Nahshon,

Nahshon the father of Salmon,

5Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab,

Boaz the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth,

Obed the father of Jesse,

6and Jesse the father of King David.

David was the father of Solomon, whose mother had been Uriah’s wife,

7Solomon the father of Rehoboam,

Rehoboam the father of Abijah,

Abijah the father of Asa,

8Asa the father of Jehoshaphat,

Jehoshaphat the father of Jehoram,

Jehoram the father of Uzziah,

9Uzziah the father of Jotham,

Jotham the father of Ahaz,

Ahaz the father of Hezekiah,

10Hezekiah the father of Manasseh,

Manasseh the father of Amon,

Amon the father of Josiah,

11and Josiah the father of Jeconiah1:11 That is, Jehoiachin; also in verse 12 and his brothers at the time of the exile to Babylon.

12After the exile to Babylon:

Jeconiah was the father of Shealtiel,

Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel,

13Zerubbabel the father of Abihud,

Abihud the father of Eliakim,

Eliakim the father of Azor,

14Azor the father of Zadok,

Zadok the father of Akim,

Akim the father of Elihud,

15Elihud the father of Eleazar,

Eleazar the father of Matthan,

Matthan the father of Jacob,

16and Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, and Mary was the mother of Jesus who is called the Messiah.

17Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Messiah.

Joseph Accepts Jesus as His Son

18This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about1:18 Or The origin of Jesus the Messiah was like this: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. 19Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet1:19 Or was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

20But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,1:21 Jesus is the Greek form of Joshua, which means the Lord saves. because he will save his people from their sins.”

22All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 23“The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”1:23 Isaiah 7:14 (which means “God with us”).

24When Joseph woke up, he did what the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took Mary home as his wife. 25But he did not consummate their marriage until she gave birth to a son. And he gave him the name Jesus.

Ang Pulong Sang Dios

Mateo 1:1-25

Ang mga Katigulangan ni Jesu-Cristo

(Luc. 3:23-38)

1Amo ini ang mga katigulangan ni Jesu-Cristo1:1 Cristo: Tan-awa ang Lista sang mga Pulong sa likod. nga kaliwat ni David. Si David nga ini kaliwat ni Abraham.

2Si Abraham amay ni Isaac, si Isaac amay ni Jacob, kag si Jacob amay ni Juda kag sang iya mga utod nga lalaki. 3Si Juda amay ni Perez kag ni Zera, kag si Tamar ang ila iloy. Si Perez amay ni Hezron, kag si Hezron amay ni Ram.1:3 Ram: Amo ini sa Hebreo. Sa Griego, Aram. 4Si Ram amay ni Aminadab, si Aminadab amay ni Nashon, kag si Nashon amay ni Salmon. 5Si 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, 6kag si Jesse amay ni Haring David.

Si Haring David amay ni Solomon kag ang iya iloy asawa anay ni Uria. 7Si Solomon amay ni Rehoboam, si Rehoboam amay ni Abia, kag si Abia amay ni Asa. 8Si Asa amay ni Jehoshafat, si Jehoshafat amay ni Joram, kag si Joram amay ni Uzia. 9Si Uzia amay ni Jotam, si Jotam amay ni Ahaz, kag si Ahaz amay ni Hezekia. 10Si Hezekia amay ni Manase, si Manase amay ni Amos,1:10 Amos: ukon, Amon. si Amos amay ni Josia, 11kag si Josia amay ni Jeconia1:11 Jeconia: ukon, Jehoyakin. kag sang iya mga utod nga lalaki. Sang sadto nga panahon, ginbihag ang mga taga-Israel pa-Babilonia.

12Amo 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, 13si Zerubabel amay ni Abiud, si Abiud amay ni Eliakim, kag si Eliakim amay ni Azor. 14Si Azor amay ni Zadok, si Zadok amay ni Akim, kag si Akim amay ni Eliud. 15Si Eliud amay ni Eleazar, si Eleazar amay ni Matan, si Matan amay ni Jacob, 16si Jacob amay ni Jose nga bana ni Maria. Si Maria amo ang iloy ni Jesus nga ginatawag Cristo. 17Gani 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

(Luc. 2:1-7)

18Amo 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. 19Karon, 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. 20Samtang 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. 21Magabata siya sing lalaki kag ngalanan mo ang bata nga Jesus,1:21 Jesus: buot silingon sang sini nga ngalan sa Hebreo, Nagaluwas ang Ginoo. kay luwason niya ang iya katawhan sa ila mga sala.” 22Natabo 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”1:23 Isa. 7:14. (nga kon sayuron, “Ang Dios kaupod naton”). 24Gani pagbugtaw ni Jose gintuman niya ang ginsiling sang anghel sang Ginoo, kag ginpangasawa niya si Maria. 25Pero wala niya gintandog si Maria samtang wala pa ini makabata. Sang nakabata na si Maria, gin-ngalanan ni Jose ang bata nga Jesus.
