(Oaths), the sixth tractate in the order Nezikin
, deals, in eight chapters, with various types of oaths – swearing to perform or to not perform a given act, oaths taken in vain, oaths relating to bailments, oaths imposed by the court (hence, the Nezikin
connection), etc. – as well as certain aspects of ritual impurity. In grouping these seemingly distinct areas of Jewish law together, Shevu‘ot
follows the precedent set by the Torah itself in Lev. 5:1-4. In addition to the legal discussions, the treatise includes a fair amount of interesting aggadic material.
