Mark 6:19 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Had a quarrel against him (ἐνεῖχεν αὐτῷ)

There is some dispute about the rendering. The Rev. renders Set herself against him, with no alternative translation in the margin; and in Luke 11:53, Press upon him vehemently, with set themselves against him in the margin. I see no objection to rendering was angry at him, taking ἐνεῖχεν αὐτῷ with an ellipsis of χόλον, anger. Very literally, had within herself (ἐν) anger against him. So Herodotus, 1:118. Astyages concealing the anger (τόν χόλον) which he felt toward him (οἱ ἐνεῖχε). 6:119, ἐνεῖχε σφῖ δεινὸν χόλον, nourished a fierce anger against them. So Moulton, Grimm, and De Wette.

Desired (ἤθελεν)

Imperfect tense, was desiring all along. Her demand for John's murder was the result of a long-cherished wish.
