6 But when Herod's abirthday came, the daughter of Herodias danced in their midst and pleased Herod;
7 Hence, he promised with an oath to give her whatever she asked.
8 And she, being instigated by her mother, said, Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist.
9 And the king was grieved, yet because of the oaths and those reclining at table with him, he commanded it to be given.
10 And he sent men and 1beheaded John in the prison.
11 And his head was brought on a platter and given to the girl, and she brought it to her mother.
12 And his adisciples came and took the corpse and buried it; and they came and reported the matter to Jesus.
