The 'Seven Commandments of the Children of Noah are laws that must be followed by non-Jewish peoples, according to Judaism. They can be found in the Book of Jubilees. The seven laws are very similar to the Ten Commandments prescribed to Jews, as they do not allow idolatry, adultery, stealing, murder, and animal cruelty. Idolatry can also be called adultery of the soul. These were created to match the 10 commandments written by God, so the Gentiles could "keep in line".
1. "No idolatry" - There is only one god to worship.
2. "No adultery" - No "cheating" once you're married.
3. "Don't eat meat taken from a still-living animal," as it constitutes cruelty.
