Who is Getting a Portion in the World to Come?

Updated: Aug 3, 2022

Any Gentile who accepts these Seven Noahide Commandments,

and is careful to observe them, is truly a pious individual of the nations of the world, and merits an eternal portion in the future World to Come.

And with this merit, the person will be included in the Resurrection of the Dead.

This applies only if he accepts them and does them because the Holy One, blessed be He, commanded them in the Torah, and made it known through Moses our teacher, that the Children of Noah were previously commanded to fulfill them.

However, if one fulfills the commandments of the Noahide Code

only out of intellectual conviction (because his logic dictates them), he

is forbidden by Torah Law to settle in the land of Israel, and he is

not counted among the pious individuals of the nations of the world.


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 ourteacher that the descendants of Noah were originally commanded

about them.

But if one observes them only by virtue of common sense,he is not a Ger Toshav (Gentile “Resident,” the Written Torah’s term

for one who takes on the Noahide Code), or one of the “pious of the

nations of the world,” but rather, one of their wise people.
