In Matthew

Mat 1:17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, from David until the captivity in Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the captivity in Babylon until the Christ are fourteen generations.

I am tired of wondering where I am missing one, what am I doing wrong here

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Abraham to David

Mat 1:2 (1)Abraham ... (2)Isaac ... (3)Jacob ... (4)Judah ... (5)Perez ... (6)Hezron ... (7)Ram. 4 (8)Amminadab ... (9)Nahshon ... (10)Salmon. 5 ... (11)Boaz ... (12)Obed ... (13)Jesse....(14)David)

David(Solomon) until Babylonian captivity

6 ... (1)Solomon ... (2)Rehoboam ... (3)Abijah ... (4)Asa. 8 ... (5)Jehoshaphat ... (6)Joram ... (7)Uzziah. 9... (8)Jotham ... (9)Ahaz ... (10)Hezekiah. 10 ... (11)Manasseh ... (12)Amon ... (13)Josiah. 11 ... (14)Jeconiah .......

about the time they were carried away to Babylon.

Babylon to Jesus--this is where I am one short??

12 ..... after they were brought to Babylon....

(1)Shealtiel ... (2)Zerubbabel. 13 ... (3)Abiud ... (4)Eliakim ... (5)Azor ... (6)Zadok ...(7)Achim ... (8)Eliud 15... (9)Eleazar ... (10)Matthan ... (11)Jacob ... (12)Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born (13)Jesus who is called Christ.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

If I count Jeconiah also in the count from Babylon to Jesus that would be fourteen, however, that does not seem to be the pattern because from Abraham to David, and from David until Babylon, is fourteen without counting a name twice.

I am really tired of wondering about this, and where I am missing it at.

P.S. with a copy and paste my nifty little arrows didn't come across, so now just dots.....:cry: (bold numbers are verse numbers :))

Thanks everyone for any help
