Flight into Egypt
This happened in order to fulfill the word spoken by the Lord through his prophets, saying:
Out of Egypt did I call my son.
When Herod realized that he had been mocked by the wise men, he went into a rage and sent out his soldiers to kill all the male children in Bethlehem and the surrounding area who were 2 years old or younger.
This fulfilled the prophecy that was spoken through Jeremiah, who said:
A voice was heard in Ramah. Weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children.
And she would not be comforted because they are no more.
