6 Revised Standard Version Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

14King Herod heard of it; for Jesus' Greek: his name had become known. Some Other ancient authorities read: he said, "John the baptizer has been raised from the dead; that is why these powers are at work in him." The Death of John the Baptist  Mk.6.14-29 | Mt.14.1-12 | Lk.9.7-9Καὶ ἠκουσεν ὁ βασιλεὺς Ἡρῴδης, φανερὸν γὰρ ἐγένετο τὸ ὀνομα αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐλεγον ὅτι Ἰωάννης ὁ βαπτίζων ἐγήγερται ἐκ νεκρῶν, καὶ διὰ τοῦτο ἐνεργοῦσιν αἱ δυνάμεις ἐν αὐ τῷ.
15But others said, "It is Eli'jah." And others said, "It is a prophet, like one of the prophets of old." ἀλλοι δὲ ἐλεγον ὅτι Ἠλίας ἐστίν· ἀλλοι δὲ ἐλεγον ὅτι προφήτης ὡς εἷς τῶν προφητῶν.
16But when Herod heard of it he said, "John, whom I beheaded, has been raised." ἀκούσας δὲ ὁ Ἡρῴδης ἐλεγεν, Ὃν ἐγὼ ἀπεκεφάλισα Ἰωάννην, οὗτος ἠγέρθη.
17For Herod had sent and seized John, and bound him in prison for the sake of Hero'di-as, his brother Philip's wife; because he had married her. Αὐτὸς γὰρ ὁ Ἡρῴδης ἀποστείλας ἐκράτησεν τὸν Ἰωάννην καὶ ἐδησεν αὐτὸν ἐν φυλακῇ διὰ Ἡρῳδιάδα τὴν γυναῖκα Φιλίππου τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ, ὅτι αὐτὴν ἐγάμησεν·
18For John said to Herod, "It is not lawful for you to have your brother's wife." ἐλεγεν γὰρ ὁ Ἰωάννης τῷ Ἡρῴδῃ ὅτι Οὐκ ἐξεστίν σοι ἐχειν τὴν γυναῖκα τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ σου.
19And Hero'di-as had a grudge against him, and wanted to kill him. But she could not, ἡ δὲ ἡρῳδιὰς ἐνεῖχεν αὐτῷ καὶ ἠθελεν αὐτὸν ἀποκτεῖναι, καὶ οὐκ ἠδύνατο·
20for Herod feared John, knowing that he was a righteous and holy man, and kept him safe. When he heard him, he was much perplexed; and yet he heard him gladly. ὁ γὰρ Ἡρῴδης ἐφοβεῖτο τὸν Ἰωάννην, εἰδὼς αὐτὸν ἀνδρα δίκαιον καὶ ἀγιον, καὶ συνετήρει αὐτόν, καὶ ἀκούσας αὐτοῦ πολλὰ ἠπόρει, καὶ ἡδέως αὐτοῦ ἠκουεν.
21But an opportunity came when Herod on his birthday gave a banquet for his courtiers and officers and the leading men of Galilee. Καὶ γενομένης ἡμέρας εὐκαίρου ὅτε Ἡρῴδης τοῖς γενεσίοις αὐτοῦ δεῖπνον ἐποίησεν τοῖς μεγιστᾶσιν αὐτοῦ καὶ τοῖς χιλιάρχοις καὶ τοῖς πρώτοις τῆς Γαλιλαίας,
22For when Hero'di-as' daughter came in and danced, she pleased Herod and his guests; and the king said to the girl, "Ask me for whatever you wish, and I will grant it." καὶ εἰσελθούσης τῆς θυγατρὸς αὐτοῦ Ἡρῳδιάδος καὶ ὀρχησαμένης, ἠρεσεν τῷ Ἡρῴδῃ καὶ τοῖς συνανακειμένοις. εἶπεν ὁ βασιλεὺς τῷ κορασίῳ, Αἰτησόν με ὃ ἐὰν θέλῃς, καὶ δώσω σοι·
23And he vowed to her, "Whatever you ask me, I will give you, even half of my kingdom." καὶ ὠμοσεν αὐτῇ πολλά, Ὅ τι ἐάν με αἰτήσῃς δώσω σοι ἑως ἡμίσους τῆς βασιλείας μου.
24And she went out, and said to her mother, "What shall I ask?" And she said, "The head of John the baptizer." καὶ ἐξελθοῦσα εἶπεν τῇ μητρὶ αὐτῆς, Τί αἰτήσωμαὶ ἡ δὲ εἶπεν, Τὴν κεφαλὴν Ἰωάννου τοῦ βαπτίζοντος.
25And she came in immediately with haste to the king, and asked, saying, "I want you to give me at once the head of John the Baptist on a platter." καὶ εἰσελθοῦσα εὐθὺς μετὰ σπουδῆς πρὸς τὸν βασιλέα ᾐτήσατο λέγουσα, Θέλω ἵνα ἐξαυτῆς δῷς μοι ἐπὶ πίνακι τὴν κεφαλὴν Ἰωάννου τοῦ βαπτιστοῦ.
26And the king was exceedingly sorry; but because of his oaths and his guests he did not want to break his word to her. καὶ περίλυπος γενόμενος ὁ βασιλεὺς διὰ τοὺς ὁρκους καὶ τοὺς ἀνακειμένους οὐκ ἠθέλησεν ἀθετῆσαι αὐτήν·
27And immediately the king sent a soldier of the guard and gave orders to bring his head. He went and beheaded him in the prison, καὶ εὐθὺς ἀποστείλας ὁ βασιλεὺς σπεκουλάτορα ἐπέταξεν ἐνέγκαι τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ. καὶ ἀπελθὼν ἀπεκεφάλισεν αὐτὸν ἐν τῇ φυλακῇ
28and brought his head on a platter, and gave it to the girl; and the girl gave it to her mother. καὶ ἠνεγκεν τὴν κεφαλὴν αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ πίνακι καὶ ἐδωκεν αὐτὴν τῷ κορασίῳ, καὶ τὸ κοράσιον ἐδωκεν αὐτὴν τῇ μητρὶ αὐτῆς.
29When his disciples heard of it, they came and took his body, and laid it in a tomb. καὶ ἀκούσαντες οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ ἦλθον καὶ ἦραν τὸ πτῶμα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐθηκαν αὐτὸ ἐν μνημείῳ.
