Matthew 14:1-13 (KJV)
[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 shew 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.

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

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

[13] When Jesus heard of it, he departed
thence by ship into a desert place apart:
and when the people had heard thereof,
they followed him on foot out of the cities.


May God's glorious graces abound to you!
