3 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.

He Baptizes, but Retires into Galilee on the Death of John.

AFTER these things came Jesus and his disciples

into the land of Judaea; and there he tarried

with them, and baptized.

2 Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee;

3 For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for He rodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife: for he had married her.

4 For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife.

5 Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:

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

10 And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.

11 And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I wiil that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist.

12 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.

13 And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,

14 And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother.
