23 his body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou shalt in any wise bury him that day (for he that is hanged is a curse of God); and thou shalt not defile thy land, which Jehovah thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.
Thou didst measure then sin's distance,
Darkness, wrath and curse were Thine!
Man betrayed, by God forsaken;
Thus we learn Thy love divine!
