(2) If it is against property in the hands of the personal representatives, heirs, devisees, legatees, tenants, or trustees, it shall require the marshal to satisfy the judgment, with interest, out of such property. (3) If it is against the person of the judgment debtor, it shall require the marshal to arrest the debtor and commit him to jail until he pays the judgment, with interest, or is discharged according to law. (4) If it is for the delivery of the possession of property, it shall require the marshal to deliver the possession of the property, describing it, to the party entitled thereto; and it may at the same time require the marshal to satisfy any costs, damages, rents, or profits recovered by the same judgment, out of the property of the person against whom it was rendered, and the value oi the property for which the judgment was rendered to be specified therein if a delivery thereof cannot be had. § 543.

(b) If a judgment directs that the defendant be arrested, the execution may issue against the person of the judgment debtor, after the return of an execution against his property unsatisfied in whole or part. (c) If a judgment requires the sale of property, it may be enforced by a writ reciting the judgment, or the material parts thereof, and directing the proper officer to execute the judgment, by making the sale and applying the proceeds in conformity therewith. (d) If a judgment requires the performance of any other act than as above designated, a certified copy of the judgment may be served upon the party against whom it is rendered, or upon the person or officer required thereby or by law to obey it, and obedience thereto may be enforced by the court. (e) If an order for the payment of a sum of money is made by a court, it may be enforced by execution in the same manner as if it were a judgment.
