Matthew 14

1  At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,

2  And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do show forth themselves in him.

3  For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife.

4  For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.

5  And when he would have put him to death, he feared the multitude, because they counted him as a prophet.

6  But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.

7  Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.

8  And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist's head in a charger.

9  And the king was sorry: nevertheless for the oath's sake, and them which sat with him at meat, he commanded it to be given her.

10  And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.
