1 Then Aḏam beat his chest, he and Ḥawwah, and they mourned the whole night until the first light of dawn, and they sighed over the length of the night in eighth month.

2 And Aḏam beat himself, and threw himself on the ground in the cave, from bitter grief, and because of the darkness and lay there as dead.

3 But Ḥawwah heard the noise he made in falling on the ground. And she felt about for him with her hands and found him like a corpse.

4 Then she was afraid, speechless, and she remained by him.

5 But the merciful 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 looked on the death of Aḏam, and on Ḥawwah’s silence from fear of the darkness.

6 And the Word of Elohim came to Aḏam and raised him from his death, and opened Ḥawwah’s mouth that she might speak.

7 Then Aḏam stood up in the cave and said, “O Elohim, why has light departed from us and darkness covered us? Why did You leave us in this extensive darkness? Why do You plague us like this?

8 And this darkness, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, where was it before it covered us? It is because of this that we cannot see each other.

9 For so long as we were in the garden we neither saw nor even knew what darkness was. I was not hidden from Ḥawwah, neither was she hidden from me, until now that she cannot see me and no darkness came over us to separate us from each other.

10 But she and I were both in one bright light. I saw her and she saw me. Yet now since we came into this cave darkness has covered us and separated us from each other so that I do not see her, and she does not see me.

11 O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, will You then plague us with this darkness?”
