Grave
Among the ancient Hebrews graves were outside of cities in the
open field (Luke 7:12; John 11:30). Kings (1 Kings 2:10) and
prophets (1 Sam. 25:1) were generally buried within cities.
Graves were generally grottoes or caves, natural or hewn out in
rocks (Isa. 22:16; Matt. 27:60). There were family cemeteries
(Gen. 47:29; 50:5; 2 Sam. 19:37). Public burial-places were
assigned to the poor (Jer. 26:23; 2 Kings 23:6). Graves were
usually closed with stones, which were whitewashed, to warn
strangers against contact with them (Matt. 23:27), which caused
ceremonial pollution (Num. 19:16).

There were no graves in Jerusalem except those of the kings,
and according to tradition that of the prophetess Huldah.

GRAVE. A place where a dead body is interred.
2. The violation of the grave, by taking up the dead body, or stealing
the coffin or grave clothes, is a misdemeanor at common law. 1 Russ. on. Cr.
414. A singular case, illustrative of this subject, occurred in Louisiana. A
son, who inherited a large estate from his mother, buried her with all her
jewels, worth $2000; he then made a sale of all he inherited from his
mother, for $30,000. After this, a thief broke the grave and stole the
jewels, which, after his conviction, were left with the clerk of the court,
to be delivered to the owner. The son claimed them, and so did the purchaser
of the inheritance; it was held that the jewels, although buried with the
mother, belonged to the son, and, that they passed to the purchaser by a
sale of the whole inheritance. 6 Robins. L. R. 488. See Dead Body.
3. In New York, by statutory enactment, it is provided, that every
person who shall open a grave, or other place of interment, with intent, 1.
To remove the dead body of any human being, for the purpose of selling the
same, or for the purpose of dissection; or, 2. To steal the coffin, or any
part thereof, or the vestments or other articles interred with any dead
body, shall, upon conviction, be punished by imprisonment, in a state
prison, not exceeding two years, or in a county gaol, not exceeding six
months, or by fine not, exceeding two hundred and fifty dollars, or by both
such fine and imprisonment. Rev. Stat. part 4, tit. 5, art. 3, Sec. 15.
