THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Matthew (Author Matthew)

14:1At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,

14:2And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.

14:6But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod.

14:7Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.

14:8And she, being before instructed of her mother, said, Give me here John Baptist's head in a charger.

14:9And 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.

14:10And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.

14:11And his head was brought in a charger, and given to the damsel: and she brought it to her mother.

14:12And his disciples came, and took up the body, and buried it, and went and told Jesus.

Mark (Author John Mark)

6:14And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.

6:15Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets.

6:16But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he is risen from the dead.

6:21And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee;

6:22And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.

6:23And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.

6:24And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.

6:25And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist.

6:26And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.

6:27And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,

6:28And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother.

6:29And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.

Luke (Author Luke)

9:7Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by him: and he was perplexed, because that it was said of some, that John was risen from the dead;

9:8And of some, that Elias had appeared; and of others, that one of the old prophets was risen again.

9:9And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom I hear such things? And he desired to see him.
