1 But when the merciful Elohim saw that Satan wished to kill Aḏam with his many tricks, and saw that Aḏam was meek and without guile, Elohim spoke to Satan in a loud voice, and cursed him.

2 Then he and his hosts fled, and Aḏam and Ḥawwah remained standing on the top of the mountain, from there they saw below them the wide world, high above which they were. But they saw none of the host which time after time were by them.

3 They cried, both Aḏam and Ḥawwah, before Elohim, and begged for forgiveness of Him.

4 Then the Word from Elohim came to Aḏam, and said to him, “You must know and understand concerning this Satan, that he seeks to deceive you and your descendants after you.”

5 And Aḏam cried before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Elohim, and begged and prayed to Him to give him something from the garden, as a token to him, wherein to be comforted.

6 And Elohim considered Aḏam’s thought, and sent the messenger Miḵa’ĕl as far as the sea that reaches India, to take from there golden rods and bring them to Aḏam.

7 This Elohim did in His wisdom in order that these golden rods, being with Aḏam in the cave, should shine forth with light in the night around him, and put an end to his fear of the darkness.

8 Then the messenger Miḵa’ĕl went down by Elohim’s order, took golden rods, as Elohim had commanded him, and brought them to Elohim.
