Bible: Matthew 2:16-18

2:16 When Herod 1  saw that he had been tricked by the wise men, he became enraged. He sent men 2  to kill all the children in Bethlehem 3  and throughout the surrounding region from the age of two and under, according to the time he had learned from the wise men. 2:17 Then what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled:

2:18A voice was heard in Ramah,

weeping and loud wailing, 4 

Rachel weeping for her children,

and she did not want to be comforted, because they were 5  gone. 6
