THE GUIDING STAR

 

Matthew 2:1-11

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 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. 5 And they said

unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the

prophet, 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. 7 Then Herod, when he

had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what

time the star appeared. 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. 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. 10 When they saw

the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. 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.
