2:13 After they had gone, an 1  angel of the Lord 2  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 3  is going to look for the child to kill him.”

Matthew 2:16

Context

2:16 When Herod 4  saw that he had been tricked by the wise men, he became enraged. He sent men 5  to kill all the children in Bethlehem 6  and throughout the surrounding region from the age of two and under, according to the time he had learned from the wise men.

2 tn Or “the angel of the Lord.” See the note on the word “Lord” in 1:20.

3 sn See the note on King Herod in 2:1. Herod the Great was particularly ruthless regarding the succession to his throne.
