ed to Joseph, before they came || in Beth-lehem of Judea, in the together, she was found with days of Herod the king, behold, child of the Holy Ghost. there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
20 But, while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife; for that which is conceived in her, is of the Holy Ghost.
2 Saying, 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. 3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.
21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS; for he shall save his people from their sins.
22 (Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel; which, being interpreted, is, God with us.)
24 Then Joseph, being raised from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife;
25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her first-born son: and he called his name JESUS.

5 And they said unto him, In Beth-lehem, of Judea: for thus it is written by the prophet,
6 And thou Beth-lehem, in the land of Juda, art not least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.
7 Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what time the star appeared.
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.
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.
