22And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod, and them that sate with him, the king said vnto the damosell, Aske of me whatsoeuer thou wilt, and I will giue it thee. 23And he sware vnto her, Whatsoeuer thou shalt aske of me, I will giue it thee, vnto the halfe of my kingdome. 24And she went forth, and said vnto her mother, What shall I aske? And she said, The head of Iohn þe Baptist.25And she came in straightway with haste, vnto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou giue me by and by in a charger, the head of Iohn the Baptist. 26And the king was exceeding sory, yet for his othes sake, and for their sakes which sate with him, hee would not reiect her.
