“And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.”
King James Version (KJV)
3:6 The Pharisees going out - Probably leaving the scribes to watch him still: took counsel with the Herodians - as bitter as they usually were against each other.
Mr 3:6 Pharisees. See PNT "Mt 3:7". Herodians. See PNT "Mt 22:16". Took counsel. Already these inveterate enemies were resolved to destroy Jesus. They took counsel "how" it might be done. As they went to the partisans of Herod, who ruled in Galilee, they probably sought to persuade them to have Herod put him to death.
