1 When the accursed serpent saw Aḏam and Ḥawwah it swelled its head, stood on its tail, and with eyes blood-red, it acted like it would kill them.
2 It made straight for Ḥawwah and ran after her while Aḏam stood by and yelled because he had no stick in his hand with which to hit the serpent, and did not know how to put it to death.
3 But with a heart burning for Ḥawwah, Aḏam approached the serpent and held it by the tail. When it turned towards him and said to him:
4 “O Aḏam, because of you and Ḥawwah I am slippery, and go on my belly.” Then with its great strength it threw down Aḏam and Ḥawwah and squeezed them, and tried to kill them.
5 But Elohim sent a messenger who threw the serpent away from them, and raised them up.
6 Then the Word of Elohim came to the serpent, and said to it, “The first time I made you slick, and made you to go on your belly but I did not deprive you of speech.
7 This time, however, you will be mute, and you and your race will speak no more because, the first time My creatures were ruined because of you, and this time you tried to kill them.”
8 Then the serpent was struck mute, and it was no longer able to speak.
9 And a wind blew down from the shamayim by the command of Elohim and carried away the serpent from Aḏam and Ḥawwah and threw it on the seashore where it landed in India.
