Deuteronomy 21:22-23 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Corpse of a Criminal. 22 If a man guilty of a capital offense is put to death and you hang him on a tree,[a] 23 his corpse shall not remain on the tree overnight. You must bury it the same day; anyone who is hanged is a curse of God.[b] You shall not defile the land which the Lord, your God, is giving you as a heritage.

Footnotes:

  1. 21:22 You hang him on a tree: some understand, “impaled on a stake.” In any case the hanging or impaling was not the means used to execute the criminal; he was first put to death by the ordinary means, stoning, and his corpse was then exposed on high as a warning for others. Cf. Jos 8:29; 10:26; 1 Sm 31:10; 2 Sm 21:9.
  2. 21:23 Gal 3:13 applies these words to the crucifixion of Jesus, who “redeemed us from the curse of the law, becoming a curse for us.”
