Matt 2:6

2:6 The second line of the quotation in Matthew appears to say the opposite of the second line of Mic. 5:2 (“too little”), but the sense is that though Bethlehem appears to be insignificant, it is in truth important. The religious experts concluded from the prophets that the Messiah was to be born in Bethlehem, but not one of them bothered to make the short journey with the wise men to see Christ.
