1:1The booke of the generation of Iesus Christ, the sonne of Dauid, the sonne of Abraham.
1:2Abraham begate Isaac, and Isaac begate Iacob, and Iacob begate Iudas and his brethren.
1:3And Iudas begate Phares and Zara of Thamar, and Phares begate Esrom, and Esrom begate Aram.
1:4And Aram begate Aminadab, and Aminadab begate Naasson, and Naasson begate Salmon.
1:5And Salmon begat Boos of Rachab, and Boos begate Obed of Ruth, and Obed begate Iesse.
1:6And Iesse begate Dauid the King, & Dauid the King begat Solomon of her that had bin the wife of Urias.
1:7And Solomon begat Roboam, and Roboam begate Abia, and Abia begate Asa.
1:8And Asa begate Iosaphat, and Iosaphat begate Ioram, and Ioram begate Ozias.
1:9And Ozias begat Ioatham, and Ioatham begate Achas, and Achas begate Ezekias.
1:10And Ezekias begate Manasses, and Manasses begate Amon, and Amon begate Iosias.
1:11And Iosias begate Iechonias and his brethren, about the time they were caried away to Babylon.
1:12And after they were brought to Babylon, Iechonias begat Salathiel, and Salathiel begate Zorobabel.
1:13And Zorobabel begat Abiud, and Abiud begat Eliakim, and Eliakim begate Azor.
1:14And Azor begat Sadoc, & Sadoc begat Achim, and Achim begat Eliud.
1:15And Eliud begate Eleazar, and Eleazar begate Matthan, and Matthan begate Iacob.
1:16And Iacob begate Ioseph the husband of Mary, of whom was borne Iesus, who is called Christ.
1:17So all the generations from Abraham to Dauid, are fourteene generations: and from Dauid vntill the carying away into Babylon, are foureteene generations: and from the carying away into Babylon vnto Christ, are fourteene generations.
1:18Now the birth of Iesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Ioseph (before they came together) shee was found with childe of the holy Ghost.
1:19Then Ioseph her husband being a iust man, and not willing to make her a publique example, was minded to put her away priuily.
1:20But while hee thought on these things, behold, the Angel of the Lord appeared vnto him in a dreame, saying, Ioseph thou sonne of Dauid, feare not to take vnto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceiued in her, is of the holy Ghost.
1:21And she shall bring forth a sonne, and thou shalt call his Name Iesus: for hee shall saue his people from their sinnes.
1:22(Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the Prophet, saying,
1:23Behold, a Uirgin shall be with childe, and shall bring foorth a sonne, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted, is, God with vs.)
1:24Then Ioseph, being raised from sleepe, did as the Angel of the Lord had bidden him, & tooke vnto him his wife:
1:25And knewe her not, till shee had brought forth her first borne sonne, and he called his name Iesus.

King James Bible 1611

The commissioning of the King James Bible took place at conference at the Hampton Court Palace in London England in 1604. When King James came to the throne he wanted unity and stability in the church and state, but was well aware that the diversity of his constituents had to be considered. There were the Papists who longed for the English church to return to the Roman Catholic fold and the Latin Vulgate. There were Puritans, loyal to the crown but wanting even more distance from Rome. The Puritans used the Geneva Bible which contained footnotes that the king regarded as seditious. The Traditionalists made up of Bishops of the Anglican Church wanted to retain the Bishops Bible.

The king commissioned a new English translation to be made by over fifty scholars representing the Puritans and Traditionalists. They took into consideration: the Tyndale New Testament, the Matthews Bible, the Great Bible and the Geneva Bible. The great revision of the Bible had begun. From 1605 to 1606 the scholars engaged in private research. From 1607 to 1609 the work was assembled. In 1610 the work went to press, and in 1611 the first of the huge (16 inch tall) pulpit folios known today as "The 1611 King James Bible" came off the printing press.
