Matthew 2:9

Oἱ δὲ ἀκούσαντες τοῦ βασιλέως, ἐπορεύθησαν· καὶ ἰδοὺ, ὁ ἀστὴρ ὃν εἶδον ἐν τῇ ἀνατολῇ προῆγεν αὐτοὺς ἕως ἐλθὼν ἐστάθη ἐπάνω οὗ ἦν τὸ παιδίον.

After they had listened to the king, they departed; and behold, the star which they saw in the east, went before them until it came and stood over where the child was.

Early Church Fathers

(1) Eusebius of Caesarea (Demonstratio Evangelica, p330, 9, Eusebius Werke, Ivar A. Heikel)
οἱ δὲ ἀκούσαντες τοῦ βασιλέως ἐπορεύθησαν· καὶ ἰδού ἀστὴρ, ὃν εἶδον ἐν τῇ ἀνατολῇ, προῆγεν αὐτοὺς, ἕως ἐλθὼν ἔστη ἐπάνω οὗ ἦν τὸ παιδίον.

(2) Eusebius of Caesarea (Demonstratio Evangelica, p404, 15, Eusebius Werke, Ivar A. Heikel)
ἐπορεύθησαν καὶ ἰδού, πάλιν ὁ αὐτὸς  ἀστὴρ, ὃν εἶδον ἐν τῇ ἀνατολῇ, προῆγεν αὐτοὺς, ἕως ἐλθὼν ἐστάθη ἐπάνω οὗ ἦν τὸ παιδίον.

A Textual Commentary On Matthew 2:9

(a) ἔστη or ἐστάθη?  ἔστη = Second aorist tense, Active voice, Indicative mood, Third person singular. εσταθη = Aorist tense, Passive voice, Indicative mood, Third person singular. ἐστάθη is prefered, because it is more likely to be changed to ἔστη than the other way round.

According to Bloomfield, the evidence for ἐστάθη is insufficient, for ἔστη occurs in the majority of MSS, and is confirmed by Protevangelium Jacobi, likewise by internal evidence, since ἐστάθη is evidently a critical alternation which occurs also at Luke 6:8 and elsewhere. The critics ought to have known that ἔστη is here taken in a popular sense, namely, as Wettstein saw, for desiit procedere atque adeo evanuit.
