1 Aḏam and Ḥawwah then felt themselves burning with thirst, and heat, and sorrow.

2 And Aḏam said to Ḥawwah, “We shall not drink of this water even if we were to die. O Ḥawwah, when this water comes into our inner parts it will increase our punishments and that of our descendants.”

3 Both Aḏam and Ḥawwah then went away from the water, and drank none of it at all but came and entered the Cave of Treasures.

4 But when in it Aḏam could not see Ḥawwah he only heard the noise she made. Neither could she see Aḏam, but heard the noise he made.

5 Then Aḏam cried in deep affliction, and beat his chest, and got up and said to Ḥawwah, “Where are you?”

6 And she said unto him, “Look, I am standing here in this darkness.”

7 He then said to her, “Remember the bright nature in which we lived, while we abode in the garden!

8 “O Ḥawwah! remember the glory that rested on us in the garden. O Ḥawwah! remember the trees that overshadowed us in the garden while we moved among them.

9 “O Ḥawwah! remember that while we were in the garden, we knew neither night nor day. Think of the Tree of Ḥai, from below which flowed the water, and that shed splendor over us! Remember, O Ḥawwah, the garden-land, and the brightness of it!

10 “Think, oh think of that garden in which was no darkness, while we lived in it.

11 “But no sooner did we come into this Cave of Treasures than darkness surrounded us all around until we can no longer see each other, and all the pleasure of this life has come to an end.”
