" 7 Then Herod secretly called the magi and determined from them athe exact time 3the 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 4Mary His mother; and they bfell to the ground and 5worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. 12 And having been 6warned by God 7in a dream not to return to Herod, the magi left for their own country by another way.

This was to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet: "10OUT OF EGYPT I CALLED 11MY SON."
