“When 5500 years are fulfilled . . . .”

1  AFTER these things the Word of Elohim came to Aḏam, and said unto him:–

2 “O Aḏam, as to the fruit of the Tree of Life, for which thou askest, I will not give it thee now, but when the 5500 years are fulfilled. Then will I give thee of the fruit of the Tree of Life, and thou shalt eat, and live forever, thou, and Ḥawwah, and thy righteous seed.

3 “But these forty-three days cannot make amends for the hour in which thou didst transgress My commandment.

4 “O Aḏam, I gave thee to eat of the fig-tree in which thou didst hide thyself. Go and eat of it, thou and Ḥawwah.

5 “I will not deny thy request, neither will I disappoint thy hope; therefore, bear up unto the fulfilment of the covenant I made with thee.”

6 And Elohim withdrew His Word from Aḏam.
