Feast of the Epiphany
From the Gospel according to St. Matthew
When Jesus therefore 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 Jesus in Bethlehem Juda in diebus Herodis regis, ecce magi ab oriente venerunt Jerosolymam,
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 Judaeorum? vidimus enim stellam ejus in oriente, et venimus adorare eum.
And king Herod hearing this, was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
Audiens autem Herodes rex, turbatus est, et omnis Jerosolyma cum illo.
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.
But they said to him: In Bethlehem of Juda. For so it is written by the prophet:
At illi dixerunt: In Bethlehem Judae: sic enim scriptum est per prophetam:
And thou Bethlehem the land of Juda art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come forth the captain that shall rule my people Israel.
Et tu Bethlehem terra Juda, nequaquam minima es in principibus Juda: ex te enim exiet dux, qui regat populum meum Israel.
Then Herod, privately calling the wise men, learned diligently of them the time of the star which appeared to them;
Tunc Herodes clam vocatis magis diligenter didicit ab eis tempus stellae, quae apparuit eis:
And sending them into Bethlehem, said: Go and diligently inquire after the child, and when you have found him, bring me word again, that I also may come to adore him.
Et mittens illos in Bethlehem, dixit: Ite, et interrogate diligenter de puero: et cum inveneritis, renuntiate mihi, ut et ego veniens adorem eum.
Who having heard the king, 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.
And seeing the star they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
Videntes autem stellam gavisi sunt gaudio magno valde.
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 ejus, et procidentes adoraverunt eum: et apertis thesauris suis obtulerunt ei munera, aurum, thus, et myrrham…
