Matthew 2:12 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Being warned (χρηματισθέντες)

The verb means to give a response to one who asks or consults: hence, in the passive, as here, to receive an answer. The word therefore implies that the wise men had sought counsel of God; and so Wycliffe, "And answer taken in sleep."
