66 - LEAVING THE BODY OF A CRIMINAL HANGING OVERNIGHT AFTER EXECUTION


Numbers 15:30 -- “But the person who does anything presumptuously, whether he is native-born or a stranger, that one brings reproach on the LORD, and he shall be cut off from among his people.”
Deuteronomy 21:23 --His body shall not remain overnight on the tree, but you shall surely bury him that day, so that you do not defile the land which the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance; for he who is hanged is accursed of God.”

“This commandment also prohibits allowing any dead body to remain unburied overnight, except where this is required by respect for the deceased, as where a coffin or shroud has to be provided, etc.”*

* Mishneh Torah, Shoftim, Hilchoth Sanhedrin XV, 8
