Herod’s Gruesome Death

20 Now he was very angry with the Tyrians and Sidonians. So they came to him with one purpose, and [after]a persuading Blastus, {the king's chamberlain},b they asked for peace, because their country was supported with food from the king's country. 21 So on an appointed day Herod, [after]c putting on royal clothing and sitting down on the judgment seat, began to deliver a public address to them. 22 But the people began to call out loudly,d "The voice of a god and not of a man!" 23 And immediately an angel of the Lord struck him down {because}e he did not give the glory to God. And he was eaten by worms [and]f died. 24 But the word of God kept on increasingg and multiplying. 25 So Barnabas and Saul returned toh Jerusalem [when they]i had completed [their]j service, having taken along with [them]k John (who is also called Mark).
