Matthew 1:6-7 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)
6 and Jesse became the father of David the king.
From David to the Babylonian Exile
And David became the father of Solomon by the wife of Uriah, 7 and Solomon became the father of Rehoboam, and Rehoboam became the father of Abijah, and Abijah became the father of Asa,
Most of the differences are resolved by the fact that Matthew traced the line through Solomon, while Luke traced the line through David’s son Nathan. (Lu 3:31; Matt. 1:6-7) Matthew was giving his reader the legal genealogy through Jesus’ adoptive father Joseph, while Luke gave his readers Jesus’ natural genealogy.
