Matthew 1:17

17 Thus 1all the generations from Abraham 2until David are fourteen generations, and from David 3until the deportation to Babylon, fourteen generations, and from the deportation to Babylon 4until the Christ, fourteen generations.

173 At the time of degradation no person was there as a landmark to demarcate the generations as did Abraham and David. Thus, the deportation became a landmark, a landmark of shame.
