Mark 6.14-29

14King Herod heard of the healings and other miracles, foJesus name had become known. Some were saying, John the baptizer has beeraised from the dead; and for this reason these powers are at work in him.15But others said, It is Elijah. And others said, It is a prophet, like onof the prophets of old. 16But when Herod heard of it, he said, John, whom beheaded, has been raised.17For Herod himself had sent men who arrested John, bound himand put him in prison on account of Herodias, his brother Philips wifebecause Herod had married her. 18For John had been telling Herod, It is nolawful for you to have your brothers wife. 19And Herodias had a grudgagainst him, and wanted to kill him. But she could not, 20for Herod feareJohn, knowing that he was a righteous and holy man, and he protected him. Whehe heard him, he was greatly perplexed; and yet he liked to listen to him21But an opportunity came when Herod on his birthday gave a banquet for hicourtiers and officers and for the leaders of Galilee. 22When his daughteHerodias came in and danced, she pleased Herod and his guests; and the kinsaid to the girl, Ask me for whatever you wish, and I will give it. 23And hsolemnly swore to her, Whatever you ask me, I will give you, even half of mkingdom. 24She went out and said to her mother, What should I ask for? Shreplied, The head of John the Baptist. 25Immediately she rushed back to thking and requested, I want you to give me at once the head of John thBaptizer on a platter. 26The king was deeply grieved; yet out of regard fohis oaths and for the guests, he did not want to refuse her. 27Immediately thking sent a soldier of the guard with orders to bring Johns head. He went anbeheaded him in the prison, 28brought his head on a platter, and gave it to thgirl. Then the girl gave it to her mother. 29When his disciples heard about itthey came and took his body, and laid it in a tomb
