One husband and wife dropped dead as Divine punishment for pledging everything and then secretly retaining a portion. There were complaints that certain ethnic groups were treated better or worse than other ethnic Text Box: to which he had become accustomed and the material goals and increase which he anticipated. Killing two hundred babies, which is the modern Western estimate of the number of children Herod had killed, or fourteen thousand, which is the Eastern tradition, was to him an insignificant and inconsequential action.
