'Gallows' in the Bible
Within three more days, Pharaoh will behead you and hang you on gallows, where birds will eat your flesh from you."
After this, Joshua struck those kings down, executing them, and hanged them on five gallows until sunset.
When evening had come, Joshua gave a command to remove the bodies from the gallows and bury them in the cave where they had hidden. The army sealed the mouth of the cave with large stones that remain there to this very day.
I hereby also decree that whoever shall alter the wording of this edict, let his residence be torn down for timber to build a gallows, hang him on it, and turn his home into an outhouse.
