    Matthew 2: 13-18 Now after they had left, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.” Then Joseph got up, took the child and his mother by night, and went to Egypt, and remained there until the death of Herod…. When the king saw that he had been tricked by the wise men, he was infuriated, and he sent and killed all the children in and around Bethlehem who were two years old or under, according to the time that he had learned from the wise men. That was to fulfil what had been spoken through the prophet Jeremiah:

    “A voice was heard in Ramah, wailing and loud lamentation.

    Rachel weeping for her children, she refused to be consoled, because they are no more.”
