    How to use "Impale" in context?

    Impale is a means of execution by piercing the victim through the chest with a sharp blade, often from a spear or polearm. While it is distinct from beheading, in which a sharp sword sliced completely through the victim's head, impale typically results in decapitation. The scriptures prescribe impaling an offender on a stake as an appropriate punishment, while practice in many cultures has also employed impaling as a means of summarily executing criminals or enemies.
