Matthew 2 verses 1-12 – King James Version
2: 1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

2: 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.

2: 3 When Herod the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

2: 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.

2:5 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet,

2: 6 And 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: 7 Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired 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 joy.

2: 11 And 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: 12 And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.
