Herod
Job 18:11
"All around terrors frighten him, And harry him at every step.
Job 18:12
"His strength is famished, And calamity is ready at his side.
Psalm 73:19
How they are destroyed in a moment! They are utterly swept away by sudden terrors!
Matthew 14:1-12
1
At that time Herod the tetrarch heard the news about Jesus,
2
and said to his servants, "This is John the Baptist; he has risen from the dead, and that is why miraculous powers are at work in him."
3
For when Herod had John arrested, he bound him and put him in prison because of Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip.
4
For John had been saying to him, "It is not lawful for you to have her."
5
Although Herod wanted to put him to death, he feared the crowd, because they regarded John as a prophet.
6
But when Herod's birthday came, the daughter of Herodias danced before [them] and pleased Herod,
7
so [much] that he promised with an oath to give her whatever she asked.
8
Having been prompted by her mother, she said, "Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist."
9
Although he was grieved, the king commanded [it] to be given because of his oaths, and because of his dinner guests.
10
He sent and had John beheaded 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
His disciples came and took away the body and buried it; and they went and reported to Jesus.
Mark 6:14-28
14
And King Herod heard [of it], for His name had become well known; and [people] were saying, "John the Baptist has risen from the dead, and that is why these miraculous powers are at work in Him."
15
But others were saying, "He is Elijah." And others were saying, "[He is] a prophet, like one of the prophets [of old]."
16
But when Herod heard [of it], he kept saying, "John, whom I beheaded, has risen!"
17
For Herod himself had sent and had John arrested and bound in prison on account of Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip, because he had married her.
18
For John had been saying to Herod, "It is not lawful for you to have your brother's wife."
19
Herodias had a grudge against him and wanted to put him to death and could not [do so];
20
for Herod was afraid of John, knowing that he was a righteous and holy man, and he kept him safe. And when he heard him, he was very perplexed; but he used to enjoy listening to him.
21
A strategic day came when Herod on his birthday gave a banquet for his lords and military commanders and the leading men of Galilee;
22
and when the daughter of Herodias herself came in and danced, she pleased Herod and his dinner guests; and the king said to the girl, "Ask me for whatever you want and I will give it to you."
23
And he swore to her, "Whatever you ask of me, I will give it to you; up to half of my kingdom."
24
And she went out and said to her mother, "What shall I ask for?" And she said, "The head of John the Baptist."
25
Immediately she came in a hurry to the king and asked, saying, "I want you to give me at once the head of John the Baptist on a platter."
26
And although the king was very sorry, [yet] because of his oaths and because of his dinner guests, he was unwilling to refuse her.
27
Immediately the king sent an executioner and commanded [him] to bring [back] his head. And he went and had him beheaded in the prison,
28
and brought his head on a platter, and gave it to the girl; and the girl gave it to her mother.
