1. If a judge try a case, reach a decision, and present his judgment in writing; if later error shall appear in his decision, and it be through his own fault, then he shall pay twelve times the fine set by him in the case, and he shall be publicly removed from the judge's bench, and never again shall he sit there to render judgement.
Because if he made this mistake once he will do it again. with an important job like that you should have correct infromation.
2. If the witnesses be not at hand, then shall the judge set a limit, at the expiration of six months. If his witnesses have not appeared within the six months, he is an evil-doer, and shall bear the fine of the pending case.
If he had a witness to help him truly he would have no problem with bringing one in therefore there can be excuses or lieng going on. keep it fair.
3. If his son is still young, and can not take possession, a third of the field and garden shall be given to his mother, and she shall bring him up.
Because the mother also made him so she should get something important for trying to bring him up.
4.If the cultivator do not plant corn or sesame in the field, the debtor's contract is not weakened.
They should plant watever they want and still get profit.
5.If any one give another silver, gold, or anything else to keep, he shall show everything to some witness, draw up a contract, and then hand it over for safe keeping.
It's responsible and accurate.
