and said, "Get up, take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel, for those who were trying to take the child's life are dead."
King James Bible
Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young child's life.
American Standard Version
Arise and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead that sought the young child's life.
Young's Literal Translation
saying, 'Having risen, take the child and his mother, and be going to the land of Israel, for they have died -- those seeking the life of the child.'
Matthew 2:20 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
They are dead - Both Herod and Antipater his son; though some think the plural is here used for the singular, and that the death of Herod alone is here intended. But as Herod's son Antipater was at this time heir apparent to the throne, and he had cleared his way to it by procuring the death of both his elder brothers, he is probably alluded to here, as doubtless he entered into his father's designs. They are dead - Antipater was put to death by his father's command, five days before this execrable tyrant went to his own place. See Josephus, Antiq. xvi. 11; xvii. 9.
