2 Saying , Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled , and all Jerusalem with him.
4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together , he demanded of them where Christ should be born .

6 And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor , that shall rulea my people Israel.
