“When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.”
King James Version (KJV)
2:10 Seeing the star - Standing over where the child was.
Mt 2:10 And when they saw the star. This language shows that for a time, at least, they had not seen the star until they left Jerusalem for Bethlehem. Its reappearance caused them great rejoicing, because it showed them that their quest was not in vain.
