In Book 2, Chapter 26 of Nishmat Ḥayyim, Menasseh ben Israel writes:
Anyone who leaves his dead relative unburied overnight, unless it be for his honor, transgresses a negative commandment. . . . And even though Rabbenu Baḥya and the Ḥizkuni assert that this prohibition applies only in the Land of Israel, Maimonides is of the opinion that even outside the Land of Israel, one who allows his dead to remain unburied overnight transgresses both a positive and a negative commandment.
Baḥya ben Asher (in his commentary on Deuteronomy 21:23) does indeed say that the prohibition applies only in the Land of Israel, but I have not been able to find anything to that effect in Ḥizkuni. Can someone provide a reference to a place where Ḥizkuni says this? Or is it possible that Menasseh is mistaken?
Many thanks in advance.
