He did this because of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife, whom he had married. CEB 18 but John told Herod, "It's against the law for you to marry your brother's wife!"

The king said to the girl, “Ask me for anything you want, and I’ll give it to you.” CEB 23 Then he swore to her, "Whatever you ask I will give to you, even as much as half of my kingdom." NIV 23 And he promised her with an oath, “Whatever you ask I will give you, up to half my kingdom.” CEB 24 She left the banquet hall and said to her mother, "What should I ask for?" "John the Baptist's head," Herodias replied. NIV 24 She went out and said to her mother, “What shall I ask for?” “The head of John the Baptist,” she answered. CEB 25 Hurrying back to the ruler, she made her request: "I want you to give me John the Baptist's head on a plate, right this minute."
