Deuteronomy - Chapter 21
#1
Chapter 21:22

"If a man commits a sin for which he is sentenced to death, and he is put to death, you shall [then] hang him on a pole."

Rashi's comment:  you shall [then] hang him on a pole: Our Rabbis said: All who are stoned [by the court] must [afterwards] be hanged, for the verse (23) says,“a hanging [human corpse] is a blasphemy of God.” [Thus, we find that the sin of blasphemy is connected with hanging,] and a blasphemer is punished by stoning. [Consequently, our Rabbis taught that all those stoned must be hanged.]- [San. 45b]

It sounds like a person is put to death AND THEN hung on a pole.

Am I reading this correctly?

Thanks.
