And He said to them, "Wherever you enter a house, staythereuntil you aleavetown.11"Anyplace that does not receive you orlisten to you, as you go out from there, 1shake the dustboff the soles of your feet for a testimony against them."122They went out and cpreached that men should repent.
And they were casting out manydemons and 3were anointing with oilmanysickpeople and healing them.
144And KingHerodheard of it, for His name had becomewellknown; and people were saying, "5John the Baptist has risen from the dead, and that is whythesemiraculouspowers are at work in Him."
But others were saying, "He is 6Elijah." And others were saying, "He is 7a prophet, likeone of the prophets of old."
But when Herodheard of it, he kept saying, "John, whom I beheaded, has risen!"
For Herodhimself had sent and had Johnarrested and bound in prison on account of 8Herodias, the wife of his brotherPhilip, because he had married her.
For John had been saying to Herod, "9It is not lawful for you to have your brother'swife."
1910Herodiashad a grudgeagainst him and wanted to put him to death and could not do so;
for 11Herod was afraid of John, knowing that he was a righteous and holyman, and he kept him safe. And when he heard him, he was veryperplexed; dbut he eused to enjoylistening to him.
