My People Israel

“Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea 

in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men 

from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, 

“Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? 

For we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” 

When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him; 

and assembling all the chief priests and scribes of the people, 

he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. 

They told him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for so it is written by the prophet:

 “‘And you, O Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,

 are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;

 for from you shall come a ruler “who will shepherd my people Israel.’”

Matthew 2:1-6
