“And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.”
King James Version (KJV)
14:10 And he sent and beheaded John in the prison, and his head was given to the damsel - How mysterious is the providence, which left the life of so holy a man in such infamous hands! which permitted it to be sacrificed to the malice of an abandoned harlot, the petulancy of a vain girl, and the rashness of a foolish, perhaps drunken prince, who made a prophet's head the reward of a dance! But we are sure the Almighty will repay his servants in another world for what ever they suffer in this.
Mt 14:10 He sent, and beheaded John in the prison. The executioner did his work in the dark dungeon; the wicked Herodias had triumphed.
