Jan 13 Hearing this, King Herod and all Jerusalem were disturbed. So he called the chief priests and scholars and asked them where the Christ was to be born. They replied, “In Bethlehem,1 as the prophet wrote, And from you, Bethlehem, though you are small among the rulers of Judah, will come One who will be ruler over Israel.” Then Herod secretly called the wise men to ask them the exact time the star appeared.

He told them, “Find the child and report to me, that I also may go and worship Him.”

After leaving Herod, the wise men were filled with joy on again seeing the star which had risen in the east, leading them to the exact place where the child was.
