14 1 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard about the fame of Jesus; 14 2 and 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." 14 3 For Herod had seized John and bound him and put him in prison, for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife; 14 4 because John said to him, "It is not lawful for you to have her." 14 5 And though he wanted to put him to death, he feared the people, because they held him to be a prophet. 14 6 But when Herod's birthday came, the daughter of Herodias danced before the company, and pleased Herod, 14 7 so that he promised with an oath to give her whatever she might ask. 14 8 Prompted by her mother, she said, "Give me the head of John the Baptist here on a platter." 14 9 And the king was sorry; but because of his oaths and his guests he commanded it to be given; 14 10 he sent and had John beheaded in the prison, 14 11 and his head was brought on a platter and given to the girl, and she brought it to her mother. 14 12 And his disciples came and took the body and buried it; and they went and told Jesus.
