Makkot (Hebrew: מכות, lashes) is a book of the Mishnah and Talmud. It is the fifth volume of the book of Nezikin. Makkot deals primarily with laws of Jewish courts and the punishments which they may administer, and may be regarded as a continuation of tractate Sanhedrin, of which it originally formed part.

Included in its scope are the topics of:

  • Collusive Witnesses (edim zomemim)
  • Exile to a "city of refuge"
  • Court-administered lashes (malkut)
