Matthew 1:3 Judah was the father of Perez and Zerah by Tamar, Perez the father of Hezron, and Hezron the father of Ram.

Matthew 1:5 Salmon was the father of Boaz by Rahab, Boaz the father of Obed by Ruth, Obed the father of Jesse,

Matthew 1:1 This is the record of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham:

Matthew 1:2 Abraham was the father of Isaac, Isaac the father of Jacob, and Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers.

Matthew 1:3 Judah was the father of Perez and Zerah by Tamar, Perez the father of Hezron, and Hezron the father of Ram.

Matthew 1:4 Ram was the father of Amminadab, Amminadab the father of Nahshon, and Nahshon the father of Salmon.

Matthew 1:5 Salmon was the father of Boaz by Rahab, Boaz the father of Obed by Ruth, Obed the father of Jesse,

Matthew 1:6 and Jesse the father of David the king. Next: David was the father of Solomon by Uriah_s wife,

Matthew 1:7 Solomon the father of Rehoboam, Rehoboam the father of Abijah, and Abijah the father of Asa.

Matthew 1:8 Asa was the father of Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat the father of Joram, and Joram the father of Uzziah.

Matthew 1:9 Uzziah was the father of Jotham, Jotham the father of Ahaz, and Ahaz the father of Hezekiah.

Matthew 1:10 Hezekiah was the father of Manasseh, Manasseh the father of Amos, Amos the father of Josiah,

Matthew 1:11 and Josiah the father of Jeconiah and his brothers at the time of the exile to Babylon.

Matthew 1:12 After the exile to Babylon: Jeconiah was the father of Shealtiel, Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel,

Matthew 1:13 Zerubbabel the father of Abiud, Abiud the father of Eliakim, and Eliakim the father of Azor.

Matthew 1:14 Azor was the father of Zadok, Zadok the father of Achim, and Achim the father of Eliud.

Matthew 1:15 Eliud was the father of Eleazar, Eleazar the father of Matthan, Matthan the father of Jacob,

Matthew 1:16 and Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

Matthew 1:17 In all, then, there were fourteen generations from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Christ.

Matthew 1:18 This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged in marriage to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with Child through the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 1:19 Because Joseph her husband, a righteous man, was unwilling to disgrace her publicly, he resolved to divorce her quietly.

Matthew 1:20 But after he had pondered these things, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, _Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the One conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 1:21 She will give birth to a son, and you shall give Him the name Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins._

Matthew 1:22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet:

Matthew 1:23 _Behold! The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call Him Immanuel_ (which means, _God with us_).

Matthew 1:24 When Joseph woke up, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him, and embraced Mary as his wife.

Matthew 1:25 But he had no union with her until she gave birth to a Son. And he gave Him the name Jesus.

Matthew 2:1 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem,

Matthew 2:2 asking, _Where is the One who has been born King of the Jews? We saw His star in the east and have come to worship Him._

Matthew 2:3 When King Herod heard this, he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him.

Matthew 2:4 When he had assembled all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired where the Christ was to be born.

Matthew 2:5 _In Bethlehem in Judea,_ they replied, _for this is what the prophet has written:

Matthew 2:6 _But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah, for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of My people Israel.__

Matthew 2:7 Then Herod called the Magi secretly and learned from them the exact time the star had appeared.

Matthew 2:8 And sending them to Bethlehem, he said: _Go, search carefully for the Child, and when you find Him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship Him._

Matthew 2:9 After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stood over the place where the Child was.

Matthew 2:10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with great delight.

Matthew 2:11 On coming to the house, they saw the Child with His mother Mary, and they fell down and worshiped Him. Then they opened their treasures and presented Him with gifts of gold and frankincense and myrrh.

Matthew 2:12 And having been warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they withdrew to their country by another route.

Matthew 2:13 When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. _Get up!_ he said. _Take the Child and His mother and flee to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the Child to kill Him._

Matthew 2:14 So he got up, took the Child and His mother by night, and withdrew to Egypt,

Matthew 2:15 where he stayed until the death of Herod. This fulfilled what the Lord had spoken through the prophet: _Out of Egypt I called my Son._

Matthew 2:16 When Herod saw that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was filled with rage. Sending orders, he put to death all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, according to the time he had learned from the Magi.

Matthew 2:17 Then what was spoken through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled:

Matthew 2:18 _A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and refusing consolation, because they are no more._

Matthew 2:19 After Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt.

Matthew 2:20 _Get up!_ he said. _Take the Child and His mother and go to the land of Israel, for those seeking the Child_s life are now dead._

Matthew 2:21 So Joseph got up, took the Child and His mother, and went to the land of Israel.

Matthew 2:22 But when he learned that Archelaus was reigning in Judea in place of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there. Having been warned in a dream, he withdrew to the district of Galilee,

Matthew 2:23 and he went and lived in a town called Nazareth. So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophets: _He will be called a Nazarene._

Matthew 3:1 In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea

Matthew 3:2 and saying, _Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near._

Matthew 3:3 This is he who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah: _A voice of one calling in the wilderness, _Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for Him.__

Matthew 3:4 John wore a garment of camel_s hair, with a leather belt around his waist. His food was locusts and wild honey.

Matthew 3:5 People went out to him from Jerusalem and all Judea and the whole region around the Jordan.

Matthew 3:6 Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River.

Matthew 3:7 But when John saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his place of baptism, he said to them, _You brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the coming wrath?

Matthew 3:8 Produce fruit worthy of repentance.

Matthew 3:9 And do not presume to say to yourselves, _We have Abraham as our father._ For I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham.

Matthew 3:10 The ax lies ready at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.

Matthew 3:11 I baptize you with water for repentance, but after me will come One more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.

Matthew 3:12 His winnowing fork is in His hand to clear His threshing floor and to gather His wheat into the barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire._

Matthew 3:13 At that time Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John.

Matthew 3:14 But John tried to prevent Him, saying, _I need to be baptized by You, and do You come to me?_

Matthew 3:15 _Let it be so now,_ Jesus replied. _It is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness in this way._ Then John permitted Him.

Matthew 3:16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, He went up out of the water. Suddenly the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and resting on Him.

Matthew 3:17 And a voice from heaven said, _This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased!_

Matthew 4:1 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

Matthew 4:2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, He was hungry.

Matthew 4:3 The tempter came to Him and said, _If You are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread._

Matthew 4:4 But Jesus answered, _It is written: _Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.__

Matthew 4:5 Then the devil took Him to the holy city and set Him on the pinnacle of the temple.

Matthew 4:6 _If You are the Son of God,_ he said, _throw Yourself down. For it is written: _He will command His angels concerning You, and they will lift You up in their hands, so that You will not strike Your foot against a stone.__

Matthew 4:7 Jesus replied, _It is also written: _Do not put the Lord your God to the test.__

Matthew 4:8 Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory.

Matthew 4:9 _All this I will give You,_ he said, _if You will fall down and worship me._

Matthew 4:10 _Away from me, Satan!_ Jesus declared. _For it is written: _Worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.__

Matthew 4:11 Then the devil left Him, and angels came and ministered to Him.

Matthew 4:12 When Jesus heard that John had been imprisoned, He withdrew to Galilee.

Matthew 4:13 Leaving Nazareth, He went and lived in Capernaum, which is by the sea in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali,

Matthew 4:14 to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah:

Matthew 4:15 _Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, the way to the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles_

Matthew 4:16 the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death, a light has dawned._

Matthew 4:17 From that time on Jesus began to preach, _Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near._

Matthew 4:18 As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen.

Matthew 4:19 _Come, follow Me,_ Jesus said, _and I will make you fishers of men._

Matthew 4:20 And at once they left their nets and followed Him.

Matthew 4:21 Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets. Jesus called them,

Matthew 4:22 and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed Him.

Matthew 4:23 Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.

Matthew 4:24 News about Him spread all over Syria, and people brought to Him all who were ill with various diseases, those suffering acute pain, the demon-possessed, those having seizures, and the paralyzed_and He healed them.

Matthew 4:25 The large crowds that followed Him came from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and beyond the Jordan.

Matthew 5:1 When Jesus saw the crowds, He went up on the mountain and sat down. His disciples came to Him,

Matthew 5:2 and He began to teach them, saying:

Matthew 5:3 _Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

Matthew 5:5 Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

Matthew 5:6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

Matthew 5:7 Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.

Matthew 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.

Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.

Matthew 5:10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 5:11 Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.

Matthew 5:12 Rejoice and celebrate, because great is your reward in heaven; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets before you.

Matthew 5:13 You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its savor, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.

Matthew 5:14 You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.

Matthew 5:15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a basket. Instead, they set it on a lampstand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.

Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Matthew 5:17 Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfill them.

Matthew 5:18 For I tell you truly, until heaven and earth pass away, not a single jot, not a stroke of a pen, will disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.

Matthew 5:19 So then, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do likewise will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 5:20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 5:21 You have heard that it was said to the ancients, _Do not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment._

Matthew 5:22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, _Raca,_ will be subject to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says, _You fool!_ will be subject to the fire of hell.

Matthew 5:23 Therefore if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you,

Matthew 5:24 leave your gift there before the altar. First go and be reconciled to your brother; then come and offer your gift.

Matthew 5:25 Reconcile quickly with your adversary, while you are still on the way to court. Otherwise he may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison.

Matthew 5:26 Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.

Matthew 5:27 You have heard that it was said, _Do not commit adultery._

Matthew 5:28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman to lust after her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Matthew 5:29 If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.

Matthew 5:30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to depart into hell.

Matthew 5:31 It has also been said, _Whoever divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce._

Matthew 5:32 But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, brings adultery upon her. And whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

Matthew 5:33 Again, you have heard that it was said to the ancients, _Do not break your oath, but fulfill your vows to the Lord._

Matthew 5:34 But I tell you not to swear at all: either by heaven, for it is God_s throne;

Matthew 5:35 or by the earth, for it is His footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King.

Matthew 5:36 Nor should you swear by your head, for you cannot make a single hair white or black.

Matthew 5:37 Simply let your _Yes_ be _Yes,_ and your _No,_ _No._ Anything more comes from the evil one.

Matthew 5:38 You have heard that it was said, _Eye for eye and tooth for tooth._

Matthew 5:39 But I tell you not to resist an evil person. If someone slaps you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also;

Matthew 5:40 if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well;

Matthew 5:41 and if someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two.

Matthew 5:42 Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.

Matthew 5:43 You have heard that it was said, _Love your neighbor and hate your enemy._

Matthew 5:44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,

Matthew 5:45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

Matthew 5:46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Do not even tax collectors do the same?

Matthew 5:47 And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even Gentiles do the same?

Matthew 5:48 Be perfect, therefore, as your Heavenly Father is perfect.

Matthew 6:1 Be careful not to perform your righteous acts before men to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

Matthew 6:2 So when you give to the needy, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be praised by men. Truly I tell you, they already have their reward.

Matthew 6:3 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,

Matthew 6:4 so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

Matthew 6:5 And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. Truly I tell you, they already have their reward.

Matthew 6:6 But when you pray, go into your inner room, shut your door, and pray to your Father, who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

Matthew 6:7 And when you pray, do not babble on like pagans, for they think that by their many words they will be heard.

Matthew 6:8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.

Matthew 6:9 So then, this is how you should pray: _Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name,

Matthew 6:10 Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Matthew 6:11 Give us this day our daily bread,

Matthew 6:12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors;

Matthew 6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one._

Matthew 6:14 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you.

Matthew 6:15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive yours.

Matthew 6:16 When you fast, do not be somber like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces to show men they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they already have their reward.

Matthew 6:17 But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face,

Matthew 6:18 so that your fasting will not be obvious to men, but only to your Father, who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

Matthew 6:19 Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.

Matthew 6:20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.

Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Matthew 6:22 The eye is the lamp of the body. If your vision is clear, your whole body will be full of light.

Matthew 6:23 But if your vision is poor, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

Matthew 6:24 No one can serve two masters: Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

Matthew 6:25 Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

Matthew 6:26 Look at the birds of the air: They do not sow or reap or gather into barns_and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Matthew 6:27 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his lifespan?

Matthew 6:28 And why do you worry about clothes? Consider how the lilies of the field grow: They do not labor or spin.

Matthew 6:29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his glory was adorned like one of these.

Matthew 6:30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

Matthew 6:31 Therefore do not worry, saying, _What shall we eat?_ or _What shall we drink?_ or _What shall we wear?_

Matthew 6:32 For the pagans pursue all these things, and your Heavenly Father knows that you need them.

Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.

Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Today has enough trouble of its own.

Matthew 7:1 Do not judge, or you will be judged.

Matthew 7:2 For with the same judgment you pronounce, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

Matthew 7:3 Why do you look at the speck in your brother_s eye, but fail to notice the beam in your own eye?

Matthew 7:4 How can you say to your brother, _Let me take the speck out of your eye,_ while there is still a beam in your own eye?

Matthew 7:5 You hypocrite! First take the beam out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother_s eye.

Matthew 7:6 Do not give dogs what is holy; do not throw your pearls before swine. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.
