    Mt 14:10,11

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:27

    Y luego el rey, enviando uno de la guardia, mand que fuese traída su cabeza;

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 27. And immediately the king sent an executioner , etc..] (See Gill on
    Matthew 14:10) and commanded his head to be brought ; ordered him to cut off his head in prison, and bring it away forthwith in a charger to him: and he went and beheaded him in the prison ; according to his orders.

    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.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    27. Mark's favorite straightway. The king is prompt in his response.

    Executioner (spekoulatora). One of Mark's Latin words, speculator. A speculator was a guardsman, whose business it was to watch or spy out (speculari). It came gradually to denote one of the armed body-guard of the Roman emperor. Thus Suetonius says of Claudius that he did not dare to attend banquets unless his speculatores with their lances surrounded him. Seneca uses the word in the sense of executioner. "He met the executioners (speculatoribus), declared that he had nothing to say against the execution of the sentence, and then stretched out his neck." Herod imitated the manners of the Roman court, and was attended by a company of speculatores, though it was not their distinctive office to act as executioners. Wyc. renders man-killer, and Tynd. hangman.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:27 {A soldier of his guard} (spekoulatora). Latin word _speculator_. A spy, scout, lookout, and often executioner. It was used of the bodyguard of the Roman emperor and so for one of Herod's spies. He was used to do errands of this sort and it was soon done. It was a gruesome job, but he soon brought John's head to the damsel, apparently in the presence of all, and she took it to her mother. this miserable Tetrarch, the slave of Herodias, was now the slave of his fears. He is haunted by the ghost of John and shudders at the reports of the work of Jesus.
