Closing chapter 6, starting chapter 7. First, 6: If one is a witness, one must come forward to give proof, and avoid litigants needing to take an oath. This law (of Isi ben Yehudah) is then put into practice in a series of example. And 7: More attention to workers rights, especially pertaining to food, while on the job, and also whether an employer can require his workers to work very early and/or very late in the day.
