Matthew 2

2:1 Now, after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days
 of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to
2:2 Saying, Where is he that is born king of the Jews? for we
 have seen his star in the east, and have come to worship him.
2:3 When Herod the king had heard [these things], he was
 troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
2:4 And when he had assembled all the chief priests and scribes
 of the people, he inquired of them where Christ should be born.
2:5 And they said to him, In Bethlehem of Judea: for thus it is
 written by the prophet,
2:6 And thou Bethlehem, [in] the land of Judah, art not the
 least among the princes of Judah: for out of thee shall come a
 Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.
2:7 Then Herod, when he had privately called the wise men,
 inquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
2:8 And 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.
2:9 When 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.
2:10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great
2:11 And when they had come into the house, they saw the young
 child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshiped him:
 and when they had opened their treasures, they presented to him
 gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
2:12 And being warned by God in a dream that they should not
 return to Herod, they departed into their own country another
2:13 And when they had 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.
2:14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by
 night, and departed into Egypt:
2:15 And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be
 fulfilled which was spoken from the Lord by the prophet,
 saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.
2:16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked by the wise men,
 was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children
 that were in Bethlehem, and in all its borders, from two years
 old and under, according to the time which he had diligently
 inquired of the wise men.
2:17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the
 prophet, saying,
2:18 In 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.
2:19 But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord
 appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,
2:20 Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and
 go into the land of Israel: for they are dead who sought the
 young child's life.
2:21 And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and
 came into the land of Israel.
2:22 But when he heard that Archelaus reigned in Judea in the
 room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither:
 notwithstanding, being warned by God in a dream, he turned
 aside into the parts of Galilee:
2:23 And 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.
