Easton's Bible Dictionary
Hanging

(as a punishment), a mark of infamy inflicted on the dead bodies of criminals (Deuteronomy 21:23) rather than our modern mode of punishment. Criminals were first strangled and then hanged (Nu. 25:4; Deuteronomy 21:22). (See 2 Samuel 21:6 for the practice of the Gibeonites.)

Hanging (as a curtain).

1. Heb. masak, (a) before the entrance to the court of the tabernacle (Exodus 35:17); (b) before the door of the tabernacle (26:36, 37); (c) before the entrance to the most holy place, called "the veil of the covering" (35:12; 39:34), as the word properly means.

2. Heb. kelaim, tapestry covering the walls of the tabernacle (Exodus 27:9; 35:17; Numbers 3:26) to the half of the height of the wall (Exodus 27:18; comp. 26:16). These hangings were fastened to pillars.

3. Heb. bottim (2 Kings 23:7), "hangings for the grove" (R.V., "for the Asherah"); marg., instead of "hangings," has "tents" or "houses." Such curtained structures for idolatrous worship are also alluded to in Ezekiel 16:16.
