Excellent answer, Chaim!

Here is the timeline of God’s re-affirming the Seven Noahide Commandments at Mount Sinai:

1st day (1 Sivan 2448) / Ex. 19:1-2. The Israelite nation encamped at Mount Sinai, on the 45th day after G-d led them out in their exodus from slavery in Egypt.

2nd day / Ex. 19:3-8. Moses ascended to the top of Mt. Sinai to receive instructions from G-d, and then he descended. The Israelites agreed that they would obediently enter into the Jewish covenant, when they said, “Everything that G-d has spoken we shall do!”

3rd day / Ex. 19:8 (starting from “Moses brought back the words of the people to G-d”) to Ex. 19:9 (up to … “and they will believe in you [Moses], also forever”). Moses then ascended Mt. Sinai again, reported to G-d, received His next instructions, and then descended.

4th day / Ex. 19:9 (starting from “Moses told the words of the people to G-d”) to Ex. 19:14, and then the continuation skips to Ex. 24:1-4 (through “Moses wrote all the words of G-d”). Moses ascended Mt. Sinai again to receive instructions from G-d, and descended to tell the people all the Divine laws that had been commanded up until that time.

The recounting and recording of the Noahide Commandments by Moses, and their acceptance by the Israelites, took place at Mount Sinai on this day, two days before G-d spoke openly to the entire nation. In Exodus 24:3-4, it says “And Moses came and told the people all the words of G-d and all the laws; and all the people answered with one voice, and said, ‘All the words which G-d has spoken will we do.’ And Moses wrote all the words of G-d…”

Here, “all the laws” refers to the Seven Noahide Commandments and a few of the Jewish Commandments, which the Israelites were commanded about after they left Egypt, but before they arrived at Mt. Sinai. (Moses told these commandments to the Israelites at Marah, after they crossed through the sea – see Exodus 15:25.) In Ex. 24:4, “Moses wrote all the words of G-d” means that at that time, he wrote down the Book of Genesis – that contains the verses which inform us of the earlier Covenant of the Rainbow and the Noahide Commandments – and the Book of Exodus up to that point.

Thus, G-d commanded upon the Jewish people that based upon the revelation they would receive at Mount Sinai, they would have the responsibility for preserving and publicizing the Noahide Commandments and all their details, which are for all the nations of the world for all generations.

5th day / Ex. 24:4 (from “He [Moses] arose early in the morning…”) to Ex. 24:11. This is the day that Moses built an alter, and read to the people the “Book of the Covenant” (the Book of Genesis, including the Seven Noahide Commandments, and part of Exodus up to that point).

6th day / Ex. 19:16-20:18, and Ex. 24:12-15. G-d openly spoke 10 of the 613 Jewish Commandments to the people, and Moses then ascended Mount Sinai, to learn more of the Jewish Commandments from G-d for 40 days and 40 nights. (Many of these Jewish commandments are recorded in Ex. 20:19 to Ex. 23:22.)

Another example: after the Torah was given, a transgression of a specific Noahide commandment (a "capital sin") carries liability to capital punishment by God or by an authorized court. But this is not commanded in Genesis as the definitive punishment for individuals other than for murder, in Genesis 9:6.

Another example is the command regarding adulterous relations with a married Jewish woman. This was related in the Torah (Leviticus 18:6) as "ish ish ..." (any man), which Tractate Sanhedrin 57b explains as including Gentiles in the command prohibiting adultery with a married Jewess. This obligated Gentiles to take care in regard to the many Torah regulations and precepts that determine if a Jewess is considered married, and they have liability before an authorized court for these additional stringencies, even though Gentiles were originally commanded through Adam regarding adultery only as it applies to Gentile marriage. Hence, the cited command in Leviticus is to Gentiles (as a detail of their forbidden sexual relations), as well as to Jews.

These examples prove that the Torah that was given through Moses included the Seven Noahide Commandments, and added details of a Noahide Code that had not been commanded up to that point (the Divine Code by Rabbi Moshe Weiner, Ask Noah International, 2018, p 30).
