EUGENE CUMMISKEY, 130 SOUTH SIXTH ST.
STEREOTYPED BY L. JOHNSON.
We hereby approve of the edition of the New Testament now published by Eugene Cummiskey, being conformable to the edition previously approved of by various prelates. Given under our hand at Philadelphia, this 1st day of October, 1839. FRANCIS PATRICK KENRICK, Bishop, &c.. We approve of this stereotype edition of the New Testament of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, being according to the Doway version.
ACCORDING TO ST. MATTHEW.
St. Matthew, one of the twelve Apostles, who from being a publican, that is, a tax-gatherer, was called by our Saviour to the Apostleship; in that profession his name was Levi: (Luke v. 27, and Mark, ch. 2. v. 14.) He was the first of the Evangelists that wrote the Gospel, and that in Hebrew, or Syro-Chaldaic, which the Jews in Palestine spoke at that time. The original is not now extant, but as it was translated in the time of the Apostles into Greek, that version was of equal authority. He wrote about six years after our Lord's Ascension.
The genealogy of Christ: he is conceived and born of a virgin.

5 And Salmon begot Booz of Rahab. And Booz begot Obed of Ruth. And Obed begot Jesse. 6 And Jesse begot David the king. And David the king begot Solomon, of her that had been the wife of Urias.
7 And 'Solomon begot Roboam. And "Roboam begot Abia. And "Abia begot Asa.
8 And Asa begot Josaphat. And Josaphat begot Joram. And Joram begot Ozias.
9 And Ozias begot Joatham. And Joatham begot Achaz. And "Achaz begot Ezechias.
Ch. 1. v. 16. The husband of Mary. The evangelist gives us rather the pedigree of St. Joseph, than that of the blessed Virgin, to conform to the custom of the Hebrews, who in their genealogies took no notice of women: but as they were near akin, the pedigree of the one sheweth that of
10 And 'Ezechias begot Manasses. And Manasses begot Amon. And 'Amon begot Josias. 11 And "Josias begot Jechonias and his brethren in the transmigration of Babylon.
12 And after the transmigration of Babylon, Jechonias begot SaFathiel. And Salathiel begot Zorobabel.
13 And Zorobabel begot Abiud. And Abiud begot Eliacim. And Eliacim begot Azor.
14 And Azor begot Sadoc. And Sadoc begot Achim. And Achim begot Eliud.
15 And Eliud begot Eleazar. And Eleazar begot Mathan. And Mathan begot Jacob.
16 And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born JESUS, who is called CHRIST.
