 1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

 2 Saying, "Where is he who is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east at its rising, and have come to worship him."

 3 When Herod the king heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

 4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where the Christ was to be born.

 5 And they said to him, "In Bethlehem of Judea, for thus it was written by the prophet [Micah],

 6 But you Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are not the least among the princes of Judah. For out of you shall come a ruler, who shall shepherd my people Israel."

Luke 2:1-6

 1 And it came to pass in those days, that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

 2 (This taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

 3 So all went to be taxed, everyone into his own city.

 4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; because Joseph was of the house and lineage of David,

 5 To be taxed with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was great with child.

 6 So it was, that while they were there, the days arrived for her to give birth to her child.
