Aḏam and Ḥawwah gird themselves and make the first altar ever built.
1 THEN Aḏam said to Elohim, “I wither in the heat; I am faint from walking, and am loth of this world. And I know not when Thou wilt bring me out of it, to rest.”
2 Then 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Elohim said unto him, “O Aḏam, it cannot be at present, not until thou hast ended thy days. Then shall I bring thee out of this wretched land.”
3 And Aḏam said to Elohim, “While I was in the garden I knew neither heat, nor languor, neither moving about, nor trembling, nor fear; but now since I came to this land, all this affliction has come upon me.”
4 Then Elohim said to Aḏam, “So long as thou wast keeping My commandment, My light and My grace rested on thee. But when thou didst transgress My commandment, sorrow and misery befell thee in this land.”
5 And Aḏam wept and said, “O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, do not cut me off for this, neither smite me with heavy plagues, nor yet repay me according to my sin; For we, of our own will, did transgress Thy commandment, and forsook Thy law, and sought to become elohim like unto Thee, when Satan the enemy deceived us.”
6 Then Elohim said again unto Aḏam, “Because thou hast borne fear and trembling in this land, languor and suffering treading and walking about, going upon this mountain, and dying from it, I will take all this upon Myself in order to save thee.”
