Matthew - Chapter: 2


2:1Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
2:2Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
2:3When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
2:4And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.
2:5And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
2:6And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.
2:7Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
2:8And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently for the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word again, that I may come and worship him also.
2:9When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.
2:10When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
2:11And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
2:12And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.
2:13And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.
2:14When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:
2:15And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.
2:16Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men.
2:17Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying,
2:18In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.
2:19But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,
2:20Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young child's life.
2:21And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and came into the land of Israel.
2:22But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judea in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither: notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee:
2:23And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.

 

2:1When Jesus then was borne at Bethleem in Iudea, in the dayes of Herod the King, beholde, there came Wisemen from the East to Hierusalem,
2:2Saying, Where is that King of the Iewes that is borne? for wee haue seene his starre in the East, and are come to worship him.
2:3When King Herod heard this, he was troubled, and all Hierusalem with him.
2:4And gathering together all the chiefe Priestes and Scribes of the people, hee asked of them, where Christ should be borne.
2:5And they saide vnto him, At Beth-leem in Iudea: for so it is written by the Prophet,
2:6And thou Beth-leem in the lande of Iuda, art not the least among the Princes of Iuda: For out of thee shall come the gouernour that shall feede that my people Israel.
2:7Then Herod priuily called the Wisemen, and diligently inquired of them the time of the starre that appeared,
2:8And sent them to Beth-leem, saying, Goe, and searche diligently for the babe: and when ye haue founde him, bring mee worde againe, that I may come also, and worship him.
2:9So when they had heard the King, they departed: and loe, the starre which they had seene in the East, went before them, till it came and stoode ouer the place where the babe was.
2:10And when they sawe the starre, they reioyced with an exceeding great ioy,
2:11And went into the house, and founde the babe with Mary his mother, and fell downe, and worshipped him, and opened their treasures, and presented vnto him giftes, euen golde, and frankincense, and myrrhe.
2:12And after they were warned of God in a dreame, that they should not go againe to Herod, they returned into their countrey another way.
2:13After their departure, behold, the Angel of the Lord appeareth to Ioseph in a dreame, saying, Arise, and take the babe and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be there til I bring thee word: for Herod will seeke the babe, to destroy him.
2:14So he arose and tooke the babe and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt,
2:15And was there vnto the death of Herod, that that might be fulfilled, which is spoken of the Lord by the Prophet, saying, Out of Egypt haue I called my sonne.
2:16Then Herod, seeing that he was mocked of the Wisemen, was exceeding wroth, and sent foorth, and slew all the male children that were in Beth-leem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two yeere old and vnder, according to the time which he had diligently searched out of the Wisemen.
2:17Then was that fulfilled which is spoken by the Prophet Ieremias, saying,
2:18In Rhama was a voyce heard, mourning, and weeping, and great howling: Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they were not.
2:19And whe Herod was dead, behold, an Angel of the Lord appeareth in a dreame to Ioseph in Egypt,
2:20Saying, Arise, and take the babe and his mother, and goe into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the babes life.
2:21Then he arose vp and tooke the babe and his mother, and came into the land of Israel.
2:22But whe he heard that Archelaus did reigne in Iudea in stead of his father Herod, he was afraide to go thither: yet after he was warned of God in a dreame, he turned aside into the parts of Galile,
2:23And went and dwelt in a citie called Nazareth, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Prophets, which was, That hee should be called a Nazarite.
