Bible: Matthew 2:12-15

2:12 After being warned in a dream not to return to Herod, 1  they went back by another route to their own country.

The Escape to Egypt

2:13 After they had gone, an 2  angel of the Lord 3  appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Get up, take the child and his mother and flee to Egypt, and stay there until I tell you, for Herod 4  is going to look for the child to kill him.” 2:14 Then he got up, took the child and his mother during 5  the night, and went to Egypt. 2:15 He stayed there until Herod 6  died. In this way what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet was fulfilled: “I called my Son out of Egypt.” 7
