1 Then Aḏam said to Ḥawwah, “Do you not see these figs and their leaves with which we covered ourselves when we were stripped of our bright nature? But now, we do not know what misery and suffering may come to us from eating them.
2 Now, therefore, Ḥawwah, let us restrain ourselves and not eat them. Let us ask Elohim to give us of the fruit of the Tree of Ḥai.”
3 So Aḏam and Ḥawwah restrained themselves and did not eat these figs.
4 But Aḏam began to pray to Elohim and to beg Him to give him of the fruit of the Tree of Ḥai, saying: “O Elohim, when we transgressed Your Commandment at the sixth hour of sixth day, we were stripped of the bright nature we had, and did not continue in the garden after our transgression more than three hours.
5 But in the evening You made us come out of it. O Elohim, we transgressed against You one hour and all these trials and sorrows have come over us until this day.
6 And those days together with this the forty-third days do not redeem that one hour in which we transgressed!
7 O Elohim, look at us with an eye of pity, and do not avenge us according to our transgression of Your Commandment in Your presence.
8 O Elohim, give us of the fruit of the Tree of Ḥai that we may eat it and live and turn not to see sufferings and other trouble in this earth, for You are Elohim.
9 When we transgressed Your Commandment You made us come out of the garden and sent a keruḇ to keep the Tree of Ḥai so that we should not eat thereof and live and know nothing of faintness after we transgressed.
10 But now, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, behold, we have endured all these days and have borne sufferings. Make these forty-three days an equivalent for the one hour in which we transgressed.”
