Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,


Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

(Now when we look up that Scripture reference this is what we find.)


Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

(One Scripture says, "shall bewith child," and the other says, "shall conceive." Also Immanuel & Emmanuel are spelled differently.)


_ Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod

the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,


And thou Bethlehem, [in] the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel.


But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, [though] thou be little among the thousands of Judah, [yet] out of thee shall he come forth unto me [that is] to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth [have been] from of old, from everlasting.

(This is the Sripture reference, but they don't sound exactly alike.)


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.


_ When Israel [was] a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.

(This sounds like a double meaning here, because it refers to Jesus in Matthew and to Israel in Hosea.)


Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying,


In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping [for] her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.


Thus saith the LORD; A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, [and] bitter weeping; Rahel weeping for her children refused to be comforted for her children, because they [were] not.

(Ramah in one place and Rama in another, and Rachel in one place and Rahel in the other.)


And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.


He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were [our] faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

(The Scripture reference here, doesn't even seem to compare at all.)

For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.


_ The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

(These are pretty close, but not exact.)
