2 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem
of Judæa in the days of Herod the king, . behold, 'wise men from the east came to Gr. Magi.

Bethlehem of Judæa: for thus it is written *by the prophet,

and said, Go and search out carefully concerning the young child; and when ye have found him, bring me word, that I also may 9 come and worship him. And they, having heard the king, went their way; and lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before
them, till it came and stood over where the 10 young child was. And when they saw the
star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. 11 And they came into the house and saw the
young child with Mary his mother; and they fell down and worshipped him ; and opening
their treasures they offered unto him gifts, 12 gold and frankincense and myrrh. And being
warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.
Now when they were departed, behold, an 13 angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise and take the young child. and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I tell thee: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. And 14 he arose and took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt; and was there until the death of Herod : that 15 it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, Out of
Egypt did I call my son. Then Herod, when 16 1 Gr. Magi. he saw that he was mocked of the 'wise men,
was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the male children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the borders thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which

and his food was locusts and wild honey. 5 Then went out unto him Jerusalem, and all
Judæa, and all the region round about Jordan ; 6 and they were baptized of him in the river 7 Jordan, confessing their sins. But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said unto them, Yo offspring of vipers, who warned you to flec 8 from the wrath to come?
