The Magi Visit the Messiah

1 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem 2 and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.” 3 When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him. 4 When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Crist was to be born. 5 “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written: 6 “ ‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.’ 7 Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared. 8 He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and make a careful search for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.” 9 After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. 10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, incense and myrrh. 12 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

A Visita dos Magos

1 Depois que Jesus nasceu em Belém da Judéia, nos dias do rei Herodes, magos vindos do oriente chegaram a Jerusalém 2 e perguntaram: “Onde está o recém-nascido rei dos judeus? Vimos a sua estrela no oriented e viemos adorá-lo”. 3 Quando o rei Herodes ouviu isso, ficou perturbado, e com ele toda Jerusalém. 4 Tendo reunido todos os chefes dos sacerdotes do povo e os mestres da lei, perguntou-lhes onde deveria nascer o Cristo. 5 E eles responderam: “Em Belém da Judéia; pois assim escreveu o profeta: 6 “ ‘Mas tu, Belém, da terra de Judá, de forma alguma és a menor entre as principais cidades de Judá; pois de ti virá o líder que, como pastor, conduzirá Israel, o meu povo.’ 7 Então Herodes chamou os magos secretamente e informou-se com eles a respeito do tempo exato em que a estrela tinha aparecido. 8 Enviou-os a Belém e disse: “Vão informar-se com exatidão sobre o menino. Logo que o encontrarem, avisem-me, para que eu também vá adorá-lo”. 9 Depois de ouvirem o rei, eles seguiram o seu caminho, e a estrela que tinham visto no oriente foi adiante deles, até que finalmente parou sobre o lugar onde estava o menino. 10 Quando tornaram a ver a estrela, encheram-se de júbilo. 11 Ao entrarem na casa, viram o menino com Maria, sua mãe, e, prostrando-se, o adoraram. Então abriram os seus tesouros e lhe deram presentes: ouro, incenso e mirra. 12 E, tendo sido advertidos em sonho para não voltarem a Herodes, retornaram a sua terra por outro caminho.
