Thus it was foretold …
“And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising”. ~ Isaiah 60:3 KJV ~
“The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah;
all they from Sheba shall come; they shall bring gold and incense;
and they shall shew forth the praises of the Lord”. ~ Isaiah 60:6 KJV ~
And thus it was fulfilled …
“Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea, in the days of Herod the king,
behold there came wisemen from the east to Jerusalem,
Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen
his star in the east, and are come to worship him. When Herod
the king had heard these things, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
And when he had gathered all the chief priest and scribes of the people together,
he demanded of them where Christ should be born. And they said unto him,
in Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophets.
And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least of the princes of Juda:
for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.
Then Herod, when he had privily called the wisemen, inquired of them diligently,
what time the star appeared.
And he sent them to Bethlehem, and said, Go and search diligently
for the young child; and, when ye have found him, bring me word again,
that I may come and worship him also. When they had heard the king,
they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them,
till it came and stood over
where the young child was.
When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
And, when they were come into the house, they saw the young child
with Mary his mother, and fell down and worshipped him: and when
they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him
gifts, gold, and frankincense and myrrh.
And, being warned of God in a dream that they should not
return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way”.
~ Matt. 2:1-12 KJV ~
