Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 6:21

_ _ And when a convenient day — for the purposes of Herodias.

_ _ was come, that Herod — rather, “A convenient day being come, when Herod.”

_ _ on his birthday, made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee — This graphic minuteness of detail adds much to the interest of the tragic narrative.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Mark 6:14-29.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Mark 6:21

A convenient day — Convenient for her purpose. His lords, captains, and principal men of Galilee — The great men of the court, the army, and the province.
