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.
MAR 6:23 And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will
give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.
MAR 6:24 And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I
ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.
MAR 6:25 And 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.
MAR 6:26 And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and
for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.
