1 Elohim said to Aḏam, “I have ordained days and years on this earth, and you and your descendants shall live and walk in them until the days and years are fulfilled. Then I shall send the Word that created you and against which you have transgressed the Word that made you come out of the garden and that raised you when you were fallen.

2 Yes, this is the Word that will again save you when the five and a half days are fulfilled.”

3 But when Aḏam heard these words from Elohim, and of the great five and a half days he did not understand the meaning of them.

4 For Aḏam was thinking there would be only five and a half days for him until the end of the world.

5 And Aḏam cried and prayed to Elohim to explain it to him.

6 Then Elohim in his mercy for Aḏam who was made after His own image and likeness explained to him that these were 5,000 and 500 years and how the One would then come and save him and his descendants.

7 But before that, Elohim had made this covenant with our father, Aḏam, in the same terms before he came out of the garden, when he was by the tree where Ḥawwah took of the fruit and gave it to him to eat.

8 Because, when our father, Aḏam, came out of the garden he passed by that tree and saw how Elohim had changed the appearance of it into another form and how it had shriveled.

9 And as Aḏam went to it he feared, trembled, and fell down. But Elohim in His mercy lifted him up and then made this covenant with him.

10 Also, when Aḏam was by the gate of the garden he saw the keruḇ with a sword of flashing fire in his hand, and the keruḇ grew angry and frowned at him. Both Aḏam and Ḥawwah became afraid of the keruḇ and thought he meant to put them to death. So they fell on their faces, trembling with fear.

11 But he had pity on them, and showed them mercy. And turning from them went up to the shamayim, and prayed unto 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and said;

12 “𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, You sent me to watch at the gate of the garden, with a sword of fire.

13 But when Your servants, Aḏam and Ḥawwah, saw me, they fell on their faces, and were as dead. O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, what shall we do to Your servants?”

14 Then Elohim had pity on them, and showed them mercy, and sent His Messenger to keep the garden.

15 And the Word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 came to Aḏam and Ḥawwah, and raised them up.

16 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to Aḏam, “I told you that at the end of the five and a half days I will send My Word and save you.

17 Therefore, strengthen your heart and stay in the Cave of Treasures, of which I have spoken to you before.”

18 And when Aḏam heard this Word from Elohim he was comforted with that which Elohim had told him. For He had told him how He would save him.
