Jacob was the father of Judah and his brothers. 3 Judah was the father of Perez and Zerah (whose mother was Tamar). Perez was the father of Hezron. Hezron was the father of Ram.  4 Ram was the father of Amminadab. Amminadab was the father of Nahshon. Nahshon was the father of Salmon. 5 Salmon was the father of Boaz (whose mother was Rahab). Boaz was the father of Obed (whose mother was Ruth). Obed was the father of Jesse.  6 Jesse was the father of King David. David was the father of Solomon (whose mother was Bathsheba, the widow of Uriah).

Note that in this passage some notorious women are listed.  They are part of the lineage from Abraham to Joseph.  God can use anyone that will commit themselves to Him.  He is Lord and is in the business of preparing usable people.  Let the Lord use you and you will be amazed at how He equips you for service.  Praise the Lord.
