1 But Satan, the hater of all that is good, sought them in the cave, but did not find them although he searched diligently for them.

2 But he found them standing in the water praying and thought within himself, “Aḏam and Ḥawwah are standing like that in that water praying to Elohim to forgive them their transgression, and to restore them to their former state, and to take them from under my hand.

3 But I will deceive them so that they shall come out of the water, and not fulfill their vow.”

4 Then the hater of all that is good, did not go to Aḏam, but he went to Ḥawwah, and took the form of a messenger of Elohim, praising and rejoicing, and he said to her:

5 “Peace be to you! Be glad and rejoice! Elohim is favorable to you and He sent me to Aḏam. I have brought him the glad tidings of deliverance and of his being filled with bright light as he was at first.

6 And Aḏam, in his joy for his restoration, has sent me to you so that you would come with me in order that I might crown you with light like him.

7 And he said to me, ‘Speak to Ḥawwah; if she does not come with you, tell her of the sign when we were on the top of the mountain, how Elohim sent his messengers who took us and brought us to the Cave of Treasures; and laid the gold on the southern side, incense on the eastern side, and myrrh on the western side.’ Now come to him.”

8 When Ḥawwah heard these words from him, she rejoiced much. And thinking Satan’s appearance was real; she came out of the sea.

9 He went first and she followed him until they came to Aḏam. Then Satan hid himself from her and she saw him no more.

10 She then came and stood before Aḏam, who was standing by the water and she rejoiced in Elohim’s forgiveness.

11 And as she called to him, he turned around and found her there and cried when he saw her and beat his chest from the bitterness of his grief. He sank into the water.

12 But Elohim looked at him and at his misery and that he was about to breathe his last breath. And the Word of Elohim came from the shamayim, raised him out of the water, and said to him, “Go up the high bank to Ḥawwah.” And when he came up to Ḥawwah he said to her, “Who told you to come here?”

13 Then she told him the discourse of the messenger who had appeared to her and had given her a sign.

14 But Aḏam grieved, and explained to her that it was Satan. He then took her and they both returned to the cave.

15 These things happened to them the second time they went down to the water seven days after their coming out of the garden.

16 They fasted in the water thirty-five days. It was altogether forty-two days since they had left the garden.
