1Mao kini ang kagikan ni Jesu-Cristo nga kaliwat ni David. Si David kaliwat ni Abraham.
2 Si Abraham amahan ni Isaac, si Isaac amahan ni Jacob, ug si Jacob amahan ni Juda ug sa mga igsoon niini nga lalaki. 3 Si Juda nakapangasawa kang Tamar ug may duha sila ka anak nga si Perez ug si Zara. Si Perez amahan ni Hezron, ug si Hezron amahan ni Aram. 4 Si Aram amahan ni Aminadab, si Aminadab amahan ni Naason, ug si Naason amahan ni Salmon. 5 Si Salmon nakapangasawa kang Rahab ug ang ilang anak mao si Boaz. Si Boaz amahan ni Obed ug ang inahan niini mao si Ruth. Si Obed amahan ni Jesse, 6 ug si Jesse amahan ni Haring David.
Si Haring David amahan ni Solomon ug ang iyang inahan asawa kaniadto ni Uria. 7 Si Solomon amahan ni Rehoboam, si Rehoboam amahan ni Abia, ug si Abia amahan ni Asa. 8 Si Asa amahan ni Jehoshafat, si Jehoshafat amahan ni Joram, ug si Joram amahan ni Uzia. 9 Si Uzia amahan ni Jotam, si Jotam amahan ni Ahaz, ug si Ahaz amahan ni Hezekia. 10 Si Hezekia amahan ni Manase, si Manase amahan ni Amos, si Amos amahan ni Josias, 11 ug si Josias amahan ni Jeconia ug sa mga igsoon niini nga lalaki.

Si Maria mao ang inahan ni Jesus nga gitawag nga Cristo. 17 Busa may 14 ka mga henerasyon gikan kang Abraham hangtod kang David. Ug may 14 usab ka mga henerasyon gikan kang David hangtod sa panahon sa pagkabihag sa mga taga-Israel ngadto sa Babilonia. Gikan sa pagkabihag nila may 14 pa gayod ka mga henerasyon hangtod kang Cristo.
Ang Pagkatawo ni Cristo
18 Mao kini ang sugilanon sa pagka-tawo ni Jesu-Cristo: Si Maria nga iyang inahan kaslonon na kang Jose. Apan sa wala pa sila mahiusa namatikdan ni Maria nga mabdos na siya pinaagi sa gahom sa Espiritu Santo. 19 Si Jose nga iyang pamanhonon usa ka matarong nga tawo ug dili siya buot nga maulawan si Maria. Busa nakadesisyon siya nga bulagan niya sa hilom si Maria. 20 Ug samtang nagapamalandong si Jose niini, nagpakita kaniya pinaagi sa damgo ang anghel sa Ginoo ug miingon, “Jose, kaliwat ni David, ayaw kahadlok sa pagpa-ngasawa kang Maria, kay nagmabdos siya pinaagi sa Espiritu Santo. 21 Manganak siyag lalaki ug nganlan mo siyag Jesus, kay luwason niya ang iyang katawhan gikan sa ilang mga sala.” 22 Nahitabo kini aron matuman ang giingon sa Ginoo pinaagi sa propeta nga nagaingon, 23 “Magmabdos ang usa ka dalagang putli, ug manganak siyag lalaki. Ug ang maong bata pagatawgon nga Emmanuel”[a] (nga kon sabton, “Ang Dios kauban nato”). 24 Busa sa pagmata ni Jose gituman niya ang giingon kaniya sa anghel sa Ginoo, ug gipangasawa niya si Maria. 25 Apan wala siya makighilawas kang Maria samtang wala pa kini manganak. Sa dihang nanganak na si Maria, ginganlan ni Jose ang bata ug Jesus.
The Family Line of Jesus the Messiah
1This is the written story of the family line of Jesus the Messiah. He is the son of David. He is also the son of Abraham.
2 Abraham was the father of Isaac.
Isaac was the father of Jacob.
Jacob was the father of Judah and his brothers.
3 Judah was the father of Perez and Zerah. Tamar was their mother.
Perez was the father of Hezron.
Hezron was the father of Ram.
4 Ram was the father of Amminadab.
Amminadab was the father of Nahshon.
Nahshon was the father of Salmon.
5 Salmon was the father of Boaz. Rahab was Boaz’s mother.
Boaz was the father of Obed. Ruth was Obed’s mother.
Obed was the father of Jesse.
6 And Jesse was the father of King David.
David was the father of Solomon. Solomon’s mother had been Uriah’s wife.
7 Solomon was the father of Rehoboam.
Rehoboam was the father of Abijah.
Abijah was the father of Asa.
8 Asa was the father of Jehoshaphat.
Jehoshaphat was the father of Jehoram.
Jehoram was the father of Uzziah.
9 Uzziah was the father of Jotham.
Jotham was the father of Ahaz.
Ahaz was the father of Hezekiah.
10 Hezekiah was the father of Manasseh.
Manasseh was the father of Amon.
Amon was the father of Josiah.
11 And Josiah was the father of Jeconiah and his brothers. At that time, the Jewish people were forced to go away to Babylon.
12 After this, the family line continued.
Jeconiah was the father of Shealtiel.
Shealtiel was the father of Zerubbabel.
13 Zerubbabel was the father of Abihud.
Abihud was the father of Eliakim.
Eliakim was the father of Azor.
14 Azor was the father of Zadok.

16 Jacob was the father of Joseph. Joseph was the husband of Mary. And Mary was the mother of Jesus, who is called the Messiah.
17 So there were 14 generations from Abraham to David. There were 14 from David until the Jewish people were forced to go away to Babylon. And there were 14 from that time to the Messiah.
Joseph Accepts Jesus as His Son
18 This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about. His mother Mary and Joseph had promised to get married. But before they started to live together, it became clear that she was going to have a baby. She became pregnant by the power of the Holy Spirit. 19 Her husband Joseph was faithful to the law. But he did not want to put her to shame in public. So he planned to divorce her quietly.
20 But as Joseph was thinking about this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. The angel said, “Joseph, son of David, don’t be afraid to take Mary home as your wife. The baby inside her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She is going to have a son. You must give him the name Jesus. That’s because he will save his people from their sins.”
22 All this took place to bring about what the Lord had said would happen. He had said through the prophet, 23 “The virgin is going to have a baby. She will give birth to a son. And he will be called Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14) The name Immanuel means “God with us.”
24 Joseph woke up. He did what the angel of the Lord commanded him to do. He took Mary home as his wife. 25 But he did not sleep with her until she gave birth to a son. And Joseph gave him the name Jesus.
