View In My Bible
10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy. 11 After coming into the house they saw the Child with 1Mary His mother; and they afell to the ground and 2worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. 12 And having been 3warned by God 4in a dream not to return to Herod, the magi left for their own country by another way.

The Flight to Egypt

13 Now when they had gone, behold, an 5angel of the Lord 6appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, "Get up! Take the Child and His mother and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is going to search for the Child to destroy Him." 14 So bJoseph got up and took the Child and His mother while it was still night, and left for Egypt. 15 He cremained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet: "7OUT OF EGYPT I CALLED 8MY SON."

Herod Slaughters Babies

16 Then when Herod saw that he had been tricked by 9the magi, he became very enraged, and sent and 10slew all the male children who were in Bethlehem and all its vicinity, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the magi. 17 Then what had been spoken through Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: 18 "11A VOICE WAS HEARD IN RAMAH, WEEPING AND GREAT MOURNING, RACHEL WEEPING FOR HER CHILDREN; AND SHE REFUSED TO BE COMFORTED, BECAUSE THEY WERE NO MORE." 19 But when Herod died, behold, an angel of the Lord 12appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, and said, 20 "Get up, take the Child and His mother, and go into the land of Israel; for those who sought the Child's life are dead."
