Deuteronomy 21:22–23

M S Sam
G
V

22  And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be put to death, and thou hang him on a tree;

22  And if there be sin in any one, and the judgement of death be upon him, and he be put to death, and ye hang him on a tree

22  When a man will have sinned in a matter which is punished by death, and, having been judged unto death, he has been hanged on a gallows

M G S Sam
V

23  his body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou shalt surely bury him the same day; for he that is hanged is a reproach unto God; that thou defile not thy land which YHWH thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.

23  his corpse shall not remain on the tree. Instead, he shall be buried on the same day. For he who hangs from a tree has been cursed by God, and you shall not defile your land, which the Lord your God will give to you as a possession.”
