Matthew’s Begats by Andrew Peterson with Lyrics


Abraham had Isaac Isaac, he had Jacob Jacob, he had Judah and his kin Then Perez and Zerah
Came from Judah’s woman, Tamar Perez, he brought Hezron up
And then came Aram, then Amminadab Then Nahshon, who was then the dad of Salmon Who with Rahab fathered Boaz Ruth, she married Boaz who had Obed
Who had Jesse Jesse, he had David who we know as king David, he had Solomon by dead Uriah’s wife Solomon, well you all know him
He had good old Rehoboam Followed by Abijah who had Asa Asa had Jehoshaphat had Joram had Uzziah Who had Jotham then Ahaz then Hezekiah Followed by Manasseh who had Amon
Who was a man Who was father of a good boy named Josiah Who grandfathered Jehoiachin
Who caused the Babylonian captivity
Because he was a liar Then he had Shealtiel, who begat Zerubbabel Who had Abiud who had Eliakim Eliakim had Azor who had Zadok who had Akim Akim was the father of Eliud then He had Eleazar who had Matthan who had Jacob Now, listen very closely
I don’t want to sing this twice Jacob was the father of Joseph The husband of Mary The mother of Christ
