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.

Mateo 1:1-25

Ang mga Ninuno ni Jesus

(Luc. 3:23-38)

1Ito ang talaan ng mga ninuno ni Jesu-Cristo na mula sa angkan ni David. Si David ay mula sa lahi ni Abraham.

2Si Abraham ang ama ni Isaac, si Isaac ang ama ni Jacob, at si Jacob ang ama ni Juda at ng kanyang mga kapatid. 3Si Juda ang ama nina Perez at Zera, at si Tamar ang kanilang ina. Si Perez ang ama ni Hezron, at si Hezron ang ama ni Aram. 4Si Aram ang ama ni Aminadab, si Aminadab ang ama ni Nashon, at si Nashon ang ama ni Salmon. 5Si Salmon ang ama ni Boaz, at si Rahab ang kanyang ina. Si Boaz ang ama ni Obed, at si Ruth ang kanyang ina. Si Obed ang ama ni Jesse, 6at si Jesse ang ama ni Haring David.

Si Haring David ang ama ni Solomon (ang ina niya ay ang dating asawa ni Uria). 7Si Solomon ang ama ni Rehoboam, si Rehoboam ang ama ni Abijah, at si Abijah ang ama ni Asa. 8Si Asa ang ama ni Jehoshafat, si Jehoshafat ang ama ni Joram, at si Joram ang ama ni Uzia. 9Si Uzia ang ama ni Jotam, si Jotam ang ama ni Ahaz, at si Ahaz ang ama ni Hezekia. 10Si Hezekia ang ama ni Manase, si Manase ang ama ni Amos,1:10 Amos: o, Amon. si Amos ang ama ni Josia, 11at si Josia ang ama ni Jeconia at ng kanyang mga kapatid. Sa panahong ito, binihag ang mga Israelita at dinala sa Babilonia.

12Ito naman ang talaan ng mga ninuno ni Jesus matapos ang pagkabihag ng mga Israelita sa Babilonia: Si Jeconia ang ama ni Shealtiel, si Shealtiel ang ama ni Zerubabel, 13at si Zerubabel ang ama ni Abiud. Si Abiud ang ama ni Eliakim, si Eliakim ang ama ni Azor, 14at si Azor ang ama ni Zadok. Si Zadok ang ama ni Akim, si Akim ang ama ni Eliud, 15at si Eliud ang ama ni Eleazar. Si Eleazar ang ama ni Matan, si Matan ang ama ni Jacob, 16at si Jacob ang ama ni Jose na ang asawaʼy si Maria. Si Maria ang ina ni Jesus na tinatawag na Cristo. 17Kaya may 14 na henerasyon mula kay Abraham hanggang kay David, may 14 na henerasyon naman mula kay David hanggang sa pagkabihag ng mga Israelita sa Babilonia, at may 14 na henerasyon din mula sa pagkabihag hanggang kay Cristo.

Ang Pagkapanganak kay Jesu-Cristo

(Luc. 2:1-7)

18Ganito ang pangyayari sa pagkapanganak kay Jesu-Cristo: Si Maria na kanyang ina ay nakatakdang ikasal kay Jose. Pero bago pa sila ikasal, nalaman ni Maria na buntis siya sa pamamagitan ng Banal na Espiritu. 19Si Jose na magiging asawa niya ay isang matuwid na tao at ayaw nitong malagay sa kahihiyan si Maria, kaya ipinasya niyang hiwalayan na lang si Maria nang palihim. 20Habang pinag-iisipan ito ni Jose, nagpakita sa kanya sa panaginip ang isang anghel ng Panginoon at nagsabi, “Jose, na mula sa angkan ni David, huwag kang matakot na pakasalan si Maria dahil ang pagbubuntis niyaʼy sa pamamagitan ng Banal na Espiritu. 21Manganganak siya ng isang lalaki at papangalanan mo siyang Jesus,1:21 Jesus: Ang ibig sabihin ng pangalang Jesus sa wikang Hebreo ay “Nagliligtas ang Panginoon.” dahil ililigtas niya ang kanyang bayan sa kanilang mga kasalanan.” 22Nangyari ang lahat ng ito upang matupad ang sinabi ng Panginoon sa pamamagitan ng propeta, 23“Magbubuntis ang isang birhen1:23 birhen: o, dalaga. at manganganak ng isang lalaki. Tatawagin siyang Emmanuel”1:23 Isa. 7:14. (na ang ibig sabihin, “Kasama natin ang Dios”). 24Nang magising si Jose, sinunod niya ang sinabi ng anghel at pinakasalan niya si Maria. 25Pero hindi siya sumiping kay Maria hanggang sa maipanganak nito ang sanggol. Nang manganak na si Maria, pinangalanan ni Jose ang sanggol ng Jesus.
