HERODIAS

I say it again.


HEROD

And that restoration of the Temple about which they have talked so much, will anything be done? They say the veil of the Sanctuary has disappeared, do they not?


HERODIAS

It was thyself didst steal it. Thou speakest at random and without wit. I will not stay here. Let us go within.


HEROD

Dance for me, Salomé.


HERODIAS

I will not have her dance.


SALOMÉ

I have no desire to dance, Tetrarch.


HEROD

Salomé, daughter of Herodias, dance for me.


HERODIAS

Peace! let her alone.


HEROD

I command thee to dance, Salomé.
