Mark 6:21-26 - Then an opportune day came when Herod on his birthday gave a feast for his nobles, the high officers, and the chief men of Galilee. And when Herodias' daughter herself came in and danced, and pleased Herod and those who sat with him, the king said to the girl, "Ask me whatever you want, and I will give it to you." He also swore to her, "Whatever you ask me, I will give you, up to half of my kingdom." So she went out and said to her mother, "What shall I ask?" And she said, "The head of John the Baptist!" Immediately she came in with haste to the king and asked, saying, "I want you to give me at once the head of John the Baptist on a platter." And the king was exceedingly sorry; yet, because of the oaths and because of those who sat with him, he did not want to refuse her.

Mark 6:21-26 we find Herodias and her daughter present for Herod's birthday. And Herod will watch Herodias' daughter dance and he will promise her up to half the kingdom and she goes out to ask her mother what she should ask for. And her mother says, ask for John the Baptist head. And she makes haste to go back and to tell Herod, I want the head of John the Baptist on a platter.
And we read in Verse 26 and the king was exceedingly sorry yet because of the oaths and because of those who sat with him, he did not want to refuse her. Be careful who you surround yourself with. Some people won't want you to repent.
