I believe Herod was greatly distressed for what had happened not just on that day but throughout his lifetime...if he was a Filipino, he would have said "sana hindi na lang ako pinanganak...malas naman ng araw ng kapanganakan ko"...sorry for those who don't understand Tagalog :) . You might need an interpreter for that...hahaha..(but seriously,i don't wanna add to what the Bible said, it's just that when we do something that causes us guilt, it remains there unless we ask forgiveness from God and he only can remove that guilt).
if you have struck hands in pledge for another,
ensnared by the words of your mouth,
since you have fallen into your neighbor's hands:
Go and humble yourself;
press your plea with your neighbor!
no slumber to your eyelids.
like a bird from the snare of the fowler.
