Matthew, Chapter 14, verse 5
5 Although he wanted to kill him, he feared the people, for they regarded him as a prophet.
This verse talks about Herod as he wanted to kill John the Baptist. Herod’s main problem was he could not control his emotions. When he wanted his brother’s wife He took her. When he wanted Salome to dance He bribed her. Lastly his fear gave into pride the pride of looking like a fool and he forgot his fear of the people and killed John.
