And, following the time-honored tradition, KJV consistently translated it as only begotten. This word also occurs three times in Lukes Gospel and once in Hebrews. In these books, however, it is always used for an only child other than Christ, and KJV translated it variously: i.e. only (son or daughter) in Luke 7:12 and 8:42, only child in Luke 9:38, and only begotten son (referring to Abrahams son Isaac) in Heb 11:17.
