Rizpah watched as her sons were hoisted onto the trees and left to die. She watched helplessly as they each breathed their last breath, innocent victims of the sins of their father. When nightfall came, she assumed someone would come remove them from the crosses. But no one came. 

Rizpah took sackcloth and laid it on the rock in front of the bodies, then she stood guard over the bodies, keeping the birds away during the day and the wild beasts during the night. 

For five months Rizpah camped out on that hill, watching as their bodies slowly decayed. She remained vigilantly by their sides, though the stench had to be overwhelming.
