20 And lHerod ||was highly displeased with them of oTyre and Sidon: but they came with one accord to him, and, phaving made Blastus †the king’s chamberlain their friend, desired peace; because qtheir country was nourished by the king’s country. 21 And upon a set day lHerod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his rthrone, and made an oration unto them. 22 And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man. 23 And immediately the angel of the Lord ssmote him, because the gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.
Or, bare a hostile mind, intending war.
Gr. that was over the king’s bedchamber.
