of Judaism, and proselytes of the gate, who dwelt among the Jews, and
although uncircumcised observed certain specific laws, esp. the
seven precepts of Noah, i.e. against the seven chief sins, idolatry,
blasphemy against God, homicide, unchastity, theft or plundering,
rebellion against rulers and the use of "flesh with the blood thereof".
