Matthew 2:1-8 [ Verse 1 in Original: Greek ]
             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
1 Now after Jesus was born R23 in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod R24 the king, magi F28 from the east arrived in Jerusalem, saying, 2 "Where is He who has been born King R25 of the Jews? For we saw His R26 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 Messiah F29 was to be born. 5 They said to him, "In R27 Bethlehem of Judea; for this is what has been written by F30 the prophet: 6 `AND 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 SHEPHERD MY PEOPLE ISRAEL.' " 7 Then Herod secretly called the magi and determined from them the F31 exact time the R30 star appeared. 8 And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and search carefully for the Child; and when you have found Him, report to me, so that I too may come and worship Him."
