“Any Gentile who accepts the seven commandments and is careful to
observe them is of the ‘pious of the nations of the world’ and will have
a portion in the World to Come. This is so provided that one accepts
them and observes them because the Holy One, blessed be He,
commanded them in the Torah and informed us through Moses
our teacher that the descendants of Noaĥ were originally commanded
The true cleaving of a person to God can only be in a way that
accords with the will of God, Who has given mankind a path of
connection to Himself, and to a spiritually higher level of eternal
existence that is inconceivable by natural means.
This can only be achieved because God Himself, in His unlimited kindness, bestows this possibility to mankind. If one rationalizes the observance of these
seven precepts and observes them based only on that reasoning, he
may indeed be an intelligent person, and he may do many good deeds.
But if one’s observance is based only on human intellect, which is
limited, it is definitely not connected with the eternally existing Divine
