Passage: Matthew 14:6-11 (RSV)

Matthew 14

6But when Herod's birthday came, the daughter of Hero'di-as danced before the company, and pleased Herod,
7so that he promised with an oath to give her whatever she might ask.
8Prompted by her mother, she said, "Give me the head of John the Baptist here on a platter."
9And the king was sorry; but because of his oaths and his guests he commanded it to be given;
10he sent and had John beheaded in the prison,
11and his head was brought on a platter and given to the girl, and she brought it to her mother.
