Principle

Under the Law of Moses, a special curse was placed upon all who were hanged on a tree.

Explanation

The Law of Moses included special instructions for one who suffered capital punishment (death) by hanging on a tree. GOD pronounced a curse upon these individuals:

22 “Now if a man committed a crime under the sentence of death, and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree, 23 his body shall not remain overnight on the tree, but you shall surely bury him that day; for he who is hanged on a tree is accursed of God; that you do not defile the land the Lord your God gives you as an inheritance.
