The Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ,
According to St. Matthew

<=  Chapter 2  =>

2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Juda, in the days of king Herod, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem.
cum ergo natus esset Iesus in Bethleem Iudaeae in diebus Herodis regis ecce magi ab oriente venerunt Hierosolymam

2:2 Saying: Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to adore him.
dicentes ubi est qui natus est rex Iudaeorum vidimus enim stellam eius in oriente et venimus adorare eum

2:3 And Herod the king hearing this, was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
audiens autem Herodes rex turbatus est et omnis Hierosolyma cum illo

2:4 And assembling together all the chief priests, and the scribes of the people, he inquired of them where Christ should be born.
et congregans omnes principes sacerdotum et scribas populi sciscitabatur ab eis ubi Christus nasceretur

2:5 But they said to him: In Bethlehem of Juda: For so it is written by the prophet:
at illi dixerunt ei in Bethleem Iudaeae sic enim scriptum est per prophetam

2:6 And thou Bethlehem, the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come forth the ruler, who shall rule my people Israel.
et tu Bethleem terra Iuda nequaquam minima es in principibus Iuda ex te enim exiet dux qui reget populum meum Israhel

2:7 Then Herod privately calling the wise men, inquired of them diligently the time of the star's appearing to them:
tunc Herodes clam vocatis magis diligenter didicit ab eis tempus stellae quae apparuit eis

2:8 And sending them into Bethlehem, said: Go, and search diligently after the child; and when you have found him, bring me word again, that I also may come and adore him.
et mittens illos in Bethleem dixit ite et interrogate diligenter de puero et cum inveneritis renuntiate mihi ut et ego veniens adorem eum

2:9 And when they had heard the king, they went their way: and behold the star which they had seen in the east, went before them, until it came and stood over where the child was.
qui cum audissent regem abierunt et ecce stella quam viderant in oriente antecedebat eos usque dum veniens staret supra ubi erat puer

2:10 And seeing the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
videntes autem stellam gavisi sunt gaudio magno valde

2:11 And entering into the house, they found the child with Mary his mother, and falling down they adored him: and opening their treasures, they offered him gifts: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
et intrantes domum invenerunt puerum cum Maria matre eius et procidentes adoraverunt eum et apertis thesauris suis obtulerunt ei munera aurum tus et murram

2:12 And having received an answer in sleep, that they should not return to Herod, they went back another way into their country.
et responso accepto in somnis ne redirent ad Herodem per aliam viam reversi sunt in regionem suam

2:13 And when they were departed, behold an angel of the Lord appeared in sleep to Joseph, saying: Arise, and take the child and his mother, and fly into Egypt, and be there until I shall tell thee. For it will come to pass that Herod will seek the child to destroy him.
qui cum recessissent ecce angelus Domini apparuit in somnis Ioseph dicens surge et accipe puerum et matrem eius et fuge in Aegyptum et esto ibi usque dum dicam tibi futurum est enim ut Herodes quaerat puerum ad perdendum eum

2:14 Who, rising up, took the child and his mother by night, and retired into Egypt:
qui consurgens accepit puerum et matrem eius nocte et recessit in Aegyptum

2:15 And he was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which the Lord spoke by the prophet, saying: Out of Egypt have I called my son.
et erat ibi usque ad obitum Herodis ut adimpleretur quod dictum est a Domino per prophetam dicentem ex Aegypto vocavi filium meum

2:16 Then Herod perceiving that he was deluded by the wise men, was exceeding angry; and sending, killed all the men children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the borders thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.
tunc Herodes videns quoniam inlusus esset a magis iratus est valde et mittens occidit omnes pueros qui erant in Bethleem et in omnibus finibus eius a bimatu et infra secundum tempus quod exquisierat a magis

2:17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremias the prophet, saying:
tunc adimpletum est quod dictum est per Hieremiam prophetam dicentem

2:18 A voice in Rama was heard, lamentation and great mourning: Rachel bewailing her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.
vox in Rama audita est ploratus et ululatus multus Rachel plorans filios suos et noluit consolari quia non sunt

2:19 But when Herod was dead, behold an angel of the Lord appeared in sleep to Joseph in Egypt.
defuncto autem Herode ecce apparuit angelus Domini in somnis Ioseph in Aegypto

2:20 Saying: Rise, and take the child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead that sought the life of the child.
dicens surge et accipe puerum et matrem eius et vade in terram Israhel defuncti sunt enim qui quaerebant animam pueri

2:21 Who, rising up, took the child, and his mother, and came into the land of Israel.
qui surgens accepit puerum et matrem eius et venit in terram Israhel

2:22 But hearing that Archelaus reigned in Judea in the room of Herod, his father, he was afraid to go thither: and being warned in sleep, he retired into the parts of Galilee.
audiens autem quod Archelaus regnaret in Iudaea pro Herode patre suo timuit illo ire et admonitus in somnis secessit in partes Galilaeae

2:23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled, what was said by the prophets: That he shall be called a Nazarene.
et veniens habitavit in civitate quae vocatur Nazareth ut adimpleretur quod dictum est per prophetas quoniam Nazareus vocabitur
