1 Ježišov rodokmeň siaha od Abraháma k Dávidovi. Toto sú Ježišovi predkovia:
2 Abrahám, Izák, Jakob (otec Júdu a jeho bratov),
3 Júda, Fares a Zára (ich matkou bola Tamara), Hezron,
4 Aram, Aminadab, Náson,
5 Salmon, Boaz (syn Rachab), Obed (syn Rút), Jesse,
6 Kráľ Dávid, Šalamún (jeho matka bola ženou Uriáša),
7 Roboám, Abia, Azaf,
8 Jozafat, Jorám, Oziáš,
9 Joatam, Achaz, Ezechiáš,
10 Manases, Amos, Joziáš,
11 Jechoniáš a jeho bratia (v čase odvlečenia do Babylona),
13 Zorobábel (po babylonskom zajatí), Abind, Eliakim,
14 Azor, Sádok, Achim,
15 Elind, Eleazar, Máttam, Jakob.
16 Jakob bol otcom Jozefa, ktorý bol mužom Márie, matky Ježiša Krista, Božieho Syna.
17 Od praotca Abraháma po Dávida je to teda štrnásť generácií. Ďalších štrnásť generácií sa vystriedalo od Dávida po babylonské zajatie a od zajatia v Babylone až po Krista zasa štrnásť. Rodokmeň uzaviera Jozef, manžel Márie, ktorej sa narodil Ježiš -- Boží Syn.
Boh sa stane človekom
18 S narodením Ježiša Krista to bolo takto: Jeho matka Mária bola zasnúbená s Jozefom. No ešte prv, ako sa vzali, vysvitlo, že čaká dieťa.
19 Jozef bol muž prísnych zásad, preto sa rozhodol, že sa s ňou rozíde, ale chcel to urobiť v tajnosti, aby ju nevystavil verejnej potupe.
20 Keď o tom uvažoval, vo sne sa mu zjavil Boží posol a povedal mu: Jozef, Dávidov syn, neboj sa vziať si Máriu, lebo dieťa, ktoré čaká, splodil Svätý Duch.
21 Porodí syna a dáš mu meno Ježiš. Lebo on vyslobodí svoj ľud z hriechu.
22 Takto sa splní predpoveď proroka Izaiáša:
23 Počujte, panna bude tehotná a porodí syna. Nazvete ho Emanuel, čo znamená Boh je s nami. "
24 Keď sa Jozef prebudil, urobil tak, ako mu anjel prikázal, a oženil sa s Máriou.
25 Ale nežil s ňou ako manžel, kým sa jej nenarodil syn, ktorému dali meno Ježiš.
The Genealogy of Jesus the Messiah
2 Abraham [d]was the father of Isaac, [e]Isaac the father of Jacob, and Jacob the father of [f]Judah and his brothers. 3 Judah was the father of Perez and Zerah by Tamar, Perez was the father of Hezron, and Hezron the father of [g]Ram. 4 Ram was the father of Amminadab, Amminadab the father of Nahshon, and Nahshon the father of Salmon. 5 Salmon was the father of Boaz by Rahab, Boaz was the father of Obed by Ruth, and Obed the father of Jesse. 6 Jesse was the father of David the king.
David was the father of Solomon by [h]Bathsheba who had been the wife of Uriah. 7 Solomon was the father of Rehoboam, Rehoboam the father of Abijah, and Abijah the father of [i]Asa. 8 Asa was the father of Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat the father of [j]Joram, and Joram the father of Uzziah. 9 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.
