And having been 3warned by God 4in a dream not to return to Herod, the magi left for their own country by anotherway.
13Now when they had gone, behold, an 5angel of the Lord6appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, "Get up! Take the Child and His mother and flee to Egypt, and remainthereuntil I tell you; for Herod is going to search for the Child to destroy Him."
14SobJoseph got up and took the Child and His mother while it was still night, and left for Egypt.
He cremainedthereuntil the death of Herod. This was to fulfillwhat had been spoken by the Lordthrough the prophet: "7OUT OF EGYPT I CALLED8MY SON."
