2:13. After they departed, behold an Angel of the Lord appeared in sleep to Joseph, saying, “Arise, and take the Child and His mother, and flee into Egypt, and stay there until I shall tell you. For it will come to pass that Herod will seek the Child to destroy Him.

2:15. That it might be fulfilled which the Lord spoke by the prophet, saying: Out of Egypt have I called my son.
2:16. Then Herod perceiving that he was deluded by the wise men, was exceeding angry; and sending killed all the men children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the borders thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.
2:17. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremias the prophet, saying:
2:18. A voice in Rama was heard, lamentation and great mourning; Rachel bewailing her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.
2:19. But when Herod was dead, behold an angel of the Lord appeared in sleep to Joseph in Egypt,
2:20. Saying: Arise, and take the child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel. For they are dead that sought the life of the child.
