Matthew 2:1-5New Living Translation (NLT)
Visitors from the East
2 Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the reign of King Herod. About that time some wise men from eastern lands arrived in Jerusalem, asking,2 “Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come to worship him.”
3 King Herod was deeply disturbed when he heard this, as was everyone in Jerusalem. 4 He called a meeting of the leading priests and teachers of religious law and asked, “Where is the Messiah supposed to be born?”
5 “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they said, “for this is what the prophet wrote:
Dear Father, Thank you for Jesus. Thank you for your signs and wonders. When I hear of you, I have delight in my heart. I have delight in my soul. Thank you for your Word, for it is from you. Thank you for your written Word. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
