13  Siehe, es erschien der Engel des Herren Joseph im Traum und sprach:
Steh auf und nimm das Kindlein und seine Mutter zu sich, und fleuch in Egyptenland;
und bleibe allda, bis ich dir sage; denn es ist vorhanden,
dass Herodes das Kindlein suche, dasselbe umzubringen.
14  Und er stund auf und nahm das Kindlein und seine Mutter zu sich bei der Nacht
und entweich in Egyptenland.
15  Und bleib allda bis nach dem Tod Herodes, auf dass erfüllet würde,
das der HERR durch den Propheten geredt ist: Aus Egypten habe ich meinen Sohn gerufen.

13  And behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying,
Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt,
and be thou there until I bring thee word:
for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.
14  When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night,
and departed into Egypt:
15  And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled
which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying: Out of Egypt have I called my son.
