-Matthew

Matthew 1:17
So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.

"Fourteen generations"
This verse says there were 14 generations from David to the Babylonian captivity, but 1 Chr.3:9-15 says there were 18. Matthew dropped four generations to preserve the magical number fourteen.
