14 Revised Standard Version Passage

1At that time Herod the tetrarch heard about the fame of Jesus;The Death of John the Baptist Mt.14.1-12 (Machaerus) | Mk.6.14-29 | Lk.9.7-9
2and he said to his servants, "This is John the Baptist, he has been raised from the dead; that is why these powers are at work in him." 
3For Herod had seized John and bound him and put him in prison, for the sake of Hero'di-as, his brother Philip's wife; Other ancient authorities read: his brother's wife 
4because John said to him, "It is not lawful for you to have her." 
5And though he wanted to put him to death, he feared the people, because they held him to be a prophet. 
6But when Herod's birthday came, the daughter of Hero'di-as danced before the company, and pleased Herod, 
7so that he promised with an oath to give her whatever she might ask. 
8Prompted by her mother, she said, "Give me the head of John the Baptist here on a platter." 
9And the king was sorry; but because of his oaths and his guests he commanded it to be given; 
10he sent and had John beheaded in the prison, 
11and his head was brought on a platter and given to the girl, and she brought it to her mother. 
12And his disciples came and took the body and buried it; and they went and told Jesus.
