7 my people Israel. Then Herod, when he had privily called the wise men, enquired of them diligently what 8 time the star appeared. 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 10 child was. When they saw the star, they rejoiced II with exceeding great joy. 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, k they 1pre-k Ps. 72. 10. sented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and

12 myrrh. And being warned of God in a dream that 1 ch. 1. 20. they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

And when they were departed, behold, the 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 bring thee word for Herod will seek the young child to destroy 14 him. When he arose, he took the young child and 15 his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: and was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, 16 saying, mOut of Egypt have I called my son.

Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the 17 wise men. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken 18 by Jeremy the prophet, saying, In Rama was there n Jer. 31. 15. a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would 19 not be comforted, because they are not.

And he arose, and took the young child and his mother, and came into the land of Israel. 22 But when he heard that Archelaus did reign in Judæa in the room of his father Herod, he was afraid to go thither: notwithstanding, being warned of God in a dream, he turned aside into the parts of Galilee : o ch. 3. 13. 23 and he came and dwelt in a city called PNazareth : Р John 1.45. that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the a Judg. 13. 5. prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.

Τότε ὁ Ἰησοῦς ἀνήχθη εἰς τὴν ἔρημον ὑπὸ τοῦ Πνεύ- 12 2 ματος, πειρασθῆναι ὑπὸ τοῦ διαβόλου. καὶ νηστεύσας ἡμέρας τεσσαράκοντα καὶ νύκτας τεσσαράκοντα, ὕστερον ἐπεί3νασε. καὶ προσελθὼν αὐτῷ ὁ πειράζων εἶπεν, Εἰ υἱὸς εἶ 4 τοῦ Θεοῦ, εἰπὲ ἵνα οἱ λίθοι οὗτοι ἄρτοι γένωνται.

But John forbad him, Luke 3. 21. saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest 15 thou to me? And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil 16 all righteousness. Then he suffered him. wAnd Jesus, w Mark 1. 10. when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and x Isai. 11.2.& 17 lighting upon him: Yand lo a voice from heaven, saying, z This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Then was a Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward 3 an hungred. And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these a Mark 1.12, 4 stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and 6 setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, and saith unto c Deut. 8. 3. him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down : 148.2 for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, f Thou shalt f Deut. 6. 16. 8 not tempt the Lord thy God. Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of 9 them; and saith unto him, All these things will I give 10 thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and 11 him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, hangels came and ministered unto him. TiNOW when Jesus had heard that John was 1cast 13 into prison, he departed into Galilee; and leaving & 4. 14, 31.
