Wise Men Visit Jesus

1 Now [after]a Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem, 2 saying, "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? For we have seen his star at its risingb and have come to worship him." 3 And [when]c King Herod heard [it],d he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him, 4 and [after]e calling together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired from them where the Christ was to be born. 5 So they said to him, "In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it is written by the prophet, 6 'And you, Bethlehem, land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah, for from you will go out a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.'"f 7 Then Herod secretly summoned the wise men [and]g determined precisely from them the time [when]h the star appeared. 8 And he sent them to Bethlehem [and]i said, "Go, inquire carefully concerning the child, and when you have found [him], report to me so that I also may come [and]j worship him." 9 [After]k they listened to the king, they went out, and behold, the star which they had seen at its risingl led them until it came [and]m stood above [the place] where the child was. 10 Now [when they]n saw the star, they rejoiced [with] very great joy.
