The Visit of the Magi

1 Now after Jesus was aborn in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of bHerod the king, 1magi from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying,

2 “Where is He who has been born aKing of the Jews? For we saw bHis star in the east and have come to worship Him.”

3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

4 Gathering together all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the 1Messiah was to be born.

5 They said to him, “aIn Bethlehem of Judea; for this is what has been written 1by the prophet:

6 ‘aAnd you, Bethlehem, land of Judah,

Are by no means least among the leaders of Judah;

For out of you shall come forth a Ruler

Who will bshepherd My people Israel.’ ”
