    VERSE (7) -
    Es 5:3,6; 7:2

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:7

    Y prometi l con juramento darle todo lo que pidiese.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 7. Whereupon he
    promised with an oath , etc.] On account of her fine dancing, and being extremely pleased with it himself; and the more, that it gave such pleasure to the whole court: he first promised her, to give her whatsoever she would ask ; and then repeating it, he confirmed it with an oath; adding, as Mark says, that he would give it her, even to the half of his kingdom: a way of speaking used by princes, when they give full power to persons to ask what they will of them; and to express their great munificence and liberality; signifying, let it be ever so great, or cost what it will, though as much as half a kingdom comes to, it shall be granted; (see Esther 5:3,6). A very foolish promise, and a rash oath these, which were made upon such a consideration, as only a fine dance. If she, as Theophylact observes, had asked for his head, would he have given it her? And if he swore by his head, which was a common form of swearing with the Jews f841 , she very appropriately, though unjustly, as Dr. Lightfoot observes, answers to him; as you have swore by your head, give me John Baptists head.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-12 - The
    terror and reproach of conscience, which Herod, like other darin offenders, could not shake off, are proofs and warnings of a futur judgment, and of future misery to them. But there may be the terror of convictions, where there is not the truth of conversion. When me pretend to favour the gospel, yet live in evil, we must not favou their self-delusion, but must deliver our consciences as John did. The world may call this rudeness and blind zeal. False professors, or timi Christians, may censure it as want of civility; but the most powerfu enemies can go no further than the Lord sees good to permit. Hero feared that the putting of John to death might raise a rebellion amon the people, which it did not; but he never feared it might stir up his own conscience against him, which it did. Men fear being hanged for what they do not fear being damned for. And times of carnal mirth an jollity are convenient times for carrying on bad designs against God' people. Herod would profusely reward a worthless dance, whil imprisonment and death were the recompence of the man of God who sough the salvation of his soul. But there was real malice to John beneat his consent, or else Herod would have found ways to get clear of his promise. When the under shepherds are smitten, the sheep need not be scattered while they have the Great Shepherd to go to. And it is bette to be drawn to Christ by want and loss, than not to come to him at all.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    7. He
    promised (wmologhsen). Lit., confessed; conveying the idea of acknowledging the obligation of his oath. Salome had degraded herself to perform the part of an almeh or common dancer, and could claim her reward.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    14:7 {
    Promised with an oath} (meta horkou hwmologesen). Literally, "confessed with an oath." For this verb in the sense of promise, see #Ac 7:17. Note middle voice of aitstai (ask for herself). Cf. #Es 5:3; 7:2.
