David commanded his young men, and they killed them and cut off their hands and their feet and hung them up beside the pool in Hebron. But they took the head of Ish-bosheth and buried it in the grave of Abner in Hebron. Bible

“cut off their hands and their feet.” This dishonored their bodies and graphically pointed to the parts of the body that participated in this great crime: the hands that killed and the feet that carried that carried the men in their evil deed.
