After Yeshua was born in Beit-Lechem in the land of Y'hudah during the time when Herod was king, Magi from the east came to Yerushalayim
and asked, "Where is the newborn King of the Jews? For we saw his star in the east and have come to worship him."
When King Herod heard of this he became very agitated, and so did everyone else in Yerushalayim. He called together all the head cohanim and Torah-teachers
of the people and asked them, "Where will the Messiah be born?"
"In BeitLechem of Y'hudah," they replied, "because the prophet wrote,
`And you, Beit-Lechem in the land of Y'hudah, are by no means the least among the rulers of Y'hudah; for from you will come a Ruler who will shepherd my people Isra'el.'"
Herod summoned the Magi to meet with him privately and asked them exactly when the star had appeared.
Then he sent them to Beit-Lechem with these instructions: "Search carefully for the child; and when you find him, let me know, so that I too may go and worship him."
After they had listened to the king, they went away; and the star which they had seen in the east went in front of them until it came and stopped over the place where the child was.
When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.
