Deuteronomy 21:22-23

A Man Hanged on a Tree Is Cursed

22“And if a man has committed a crime punishable by death and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree, 23 a  his body shall not remain all night on the tree, but you shall bury him the same day, for b  a hanged man is cursed by God. c  You shall not defile your land that the  Lord your God is giving you for an inheritance.
