6Yishai [God’s gift] begot David [Beloved] the King; David [Beloved] the King begot Shlomo [peace] from the wife of Uriyah.
7Shlomo [peace] begot Rechav’am [the people are enlarged]; Rechav’am [the people are enlarged] begot Aviyah [Yah is my father]; Aviyah [Yah is my father] begot Asa [healer].
8Asa [healer] begot Y’hoshafat [Yah has judged]; Y’hoshafat [Yah has judged] begot Yoram [God is exalted]; Yoram [God is exalted] begot ‘Uziyahu [Yehovah is my strength].
9‘Uziyahu [Yehovah is my strength] begot Yotam [God is perfect]; Yotam [God is perfect] begot Achaz [God is holding]; Achaz [God is holding] begot Hizkiyahu [God strengthens].
10Hizkiyahu [God strengthens] begot M’nasheh [to cause to forget]; M’nasheh [to cause to forget] begot Amon [secret, builder]; Amon [secret, builder] begot Yoshiyahu [Yehovah heals].
11Yoshiyahu [Yehovah heals] begot Y’hoyakim [Yah raises up]; Y’hoyakim [Yah raises up] begot Y’khanyahu [Yah estabished] and his brothers in the exile in Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) [confusion].
12Y’khanyahu [Yah estabished] begot Sh’altiel [I asked God (El)]; Sh’altiel [I asked God (El)] begot Z’rubavel [begotten in Babylon (confusion)].
13Z’rubavel [begotten in Babylon (confusion)] begot Avihud [Father of praise, Father of renown (great reputation; being well-known)]; Avihud [Father of praise, Father of renown (great reputation; being well-known)] begot Elyakim [God will establish]; Elyakim [God will establish] begot ‘Azor [a helper].

16Ya’akov [heal grabber] begot Yosef [he will add]. This Yosef [he will add] was the husband of Miryam [waters of strength] the mother of Yeshua [God is Salvation] who is called Ha-Moshiach [Messiah] [The Messiah].
17So all the generations from Avraham [Exalted Father] unto David [Beloved] were fourteen generations and from David [Beloved] unto the exile in Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) were fourteen generations and from the exile in Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) unto Yeshua [God is Salvation] were fourteen generations.
18The birth of Yeshua [God is Salvation] was in this way: It came to pass when his mother was betrothed to Yosef [he will add], before he had intercourse with her, she was found with Child by Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit [Ruach]) (which means: The Holy Spirit [Ruach]).
19Yosef [he will add] was a righteous man and did not wish to dwell with her nor to expose her by bringing her to shame or to bind her over to death. He instead wished to conceal her.
20While he thought on this matter in his heart, behold an angel appeared to him in a dream and said: “Yosef [he will add] ben David [Beloved] do not fear to take Miryam [waters of strength] as your wife because she is with Child by Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit [Ruach])”.
21“She will bear a son and you will call his name Yeshua [God is Salvation] because he will save My people from their sins”.
22Then Yosef [he will add] awoke from his sleep, did according to all which the angel of Yehovah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] commanded him, and took her as his wife.
23But he did not have intercourse with her until she brought forth her firstborn Son and he called his name Yeshua [God is Salvation].
