14 King(AO) Herod(AP) heard of this, because Jesus’ name(AQ) had become well known. Some(c) said, “John the Baptist(AR) has been raised from the dead,(AS) and that’s why supernatural powers(AT) are at work(AU) in him.”

14 King Herod heard about this, because Jesus' name had become well-known. He was saying, "John the Baptist has been raised from the dead! That's why he is able to do these miracles."

14 King Herod [Antipas] heard about this, for Jesus’ name and reputation had become well known. People were saying, “John the Baptist has been raised from the dead, and that is why these miraculous powers are at work in Him.”

15 Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets.

15 But others said, “He’s Elijah.”(AV) Still others said, “He’s a prophet(d)—like one of the prophets.”(AW)

15 Others were saying, "He is Elijah." Still others were saying, "He is a prophet like one of the other prophets."

23 And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.

23 He swore with an oath to her, "I'll give you anything you ask for, up to half of my kingdom."

24 Then she went out and said to her mother, “What should I ask for?”“John the Baptist’s(BU) head!” she said.

24 So she went out and asked her mother, "What should I ask for?" Her mother replied, "The head of John the Baptist."

24 She went out and said to her mother, “What shall I ask for?” And Herodias replied, “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.”

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.

25 Immediately she hurried to the king and said, “I want you to give me John the Baptist’s(BV) head on a platter(BW)—right now!”

25 Immediately the girl hurried back to the king with her request, "I want you to give me right now the head of John the Baptist on a platter."

25 And she rushed back to the king and asked, saying, “I want you to give me right now 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 (p)his dinner guests, he was unwilling to refuse her.

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.
