    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:23

    Y le jur: Todo lo que me pidieres te dar, hasta la mitad de mi reino.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Mark 6:23

    Verse 23. Unto the half of my
    kingdom.] A noble price for a dance! This extravagance in favour of female dancers has the fullest scope in the east, even to the present day. M. Anquetil du Perron, in the preliminary discourse to his Zend Avesta, p. 344 and 345, gives a particular account of the dancers at Surat. This account cannot be transcribed in a comment on the Gospel of God, however illustrative it might be of the conduct of Herodias and her daughter Salome: it is too abominable for a place here. He observes, that the rich vie with each other in the presents they make to the dancing girls of money and jewels; and that persons of opulence have even ruined themselves by the presents they made to those victims of debauch.

    He mentions a remarkable case, which may throw light on this passage: "That the dancer Laal-koner gained such a complete ascendancy over the Mogul Emperor Maaz-eddin, that he made her joint governess of the empire with himself."


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 23. And he sware unto her , etc..] He added an oath to what he had before said, the more to confirm it, and to encourage her in her request, and which he repeated in stronger language: whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom ; (see Gill on Matthew 14:7).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-29 -
    Herod feared John while he lived, and feared him still more when he wa dead. Herod did many of those things which John in his preaching taugh him; but it is not enough to do many things, we must have respect to all the commandments. Herod respected John, till he touched him in his Herodias. Thus many love good preaching, if it keep far away from their beloved sin. But it is better that sinners persecute ministers now for faithfulness, than curse them eternally for unfaithfulness. The ways of God are unsearchable; but we may be sure he never can be at a loss to repay his servants for what they endure or lose for his sake. Deat could not come so as to surprise this holy man; and the triumph of the wicked was short.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:23 {And he sware unto her} (kai wmosen autei). The girl was of marriageable age though called korasion (cf. #Es 2:9). Salome was afterward
    married to Philip the Tetrarch. The swaggering oath to the half of the kingdom reminds one of #Es 5:3f., the same oath made to Esther by Ahasuerus.
