Matthew 2:5 And they sayd vnto hym: at Bethleem in Iury. For thus it is wrytten by the prophete. Matthew 2:6 And thou Bethleem in the land of Iury, art not the least concerning the Princes of Iuda. For out of the shal come the captaine, that shall gouerne my people Israel. Matthew 2:7 Then Herode preuily called the wyse men, and diligently enquired of them, the tyme of the starre that apeared, Matthew 2:8 and sent them to Bethleem sayinge: Go and searche diligentlye for the childe. And when ye haue founde hym, bringe me worde, that I may come and worshyppe him also. Matthew 2:9 When they hearde the kynge, they departed: and lo the starre which they sawe in the east went before them, tyll it came and stode ouer the place wher þe childe was.

Matthew 2:22 But when he hearde that Archelaus did raygne in Iurye, in the roume of his father Herode, he was afraide to go thither.
