The Visit of the Magi

1 Now after Jesus was 1born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of 2Herod the king, amagi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, 2 "Where is He who has been born 3King of the Jews? For we saw 4His star in the east and have come to worship Him." 3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 Gathering together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the bMessiah was to be born. 5 They said to him, "5In Bethlehem of Judea; for this is what has been written cby the prophet: 6 '6AND YOU, BETHLEHEM, LAND OF JUDAH, ARE BY NO MEANS LEAST AMONG THE LEADERS OF JUDAH; FOR OUT OF YOU SHALL COME FORTH A RULER WHO WILL 7SHEPHERD MY PEOPLE ISRAEL.' " 7 Then Herod secretly called the magi and determined from them dthe exact time 8the star appeared. 8 And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and search carefully for the Child; and when you have found Him, report to me, so that I too may come and worship Him." 9 After hearing the king, they went their way; and the star, which they had seen in the east, went on before them until it came and stood over the place where the Child was. 10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. 11 After coming into the house they saw the Child with 9Mary His mother; and they efell to the ground and 10worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. 12 And having been 11warned by God 12in a dream not to return to Herod, the magi left for their own country by another way.
