See Bishop Pearce.

On Herod's birthday the daughter of Herodias danced for the guests and pleased Herod so much
They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him,
The chief priests and the teachers of the law were standing there, vehemently accusing him.
Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in filthy old clothes also comes in.
If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, "Here's a good seat for you," but say to the poor man, "You stand there" or "Sit on the floor by my feet,"
