1 But Aḏam and Ḥawwah cried for having come out of the garden, which was their first home.
2 And indeed, when Aḏam looked at his flesh he saw that it was altered, and he cried bitterly, he and Ḥawwah cried, over what they had done. And they walked and went gently down into the Cave of Treasures.
3 And as they came to it, Aḏam cried over himself and said to Ḥawwah, “Look at this cave that is to be our prison in this world, and a place of punishment!
4 What is it compared with the garden? What is its narrowness compared with the space of the other?
5 What is this rock compared of those groves? What is the gloom of this cavern, compared with the light of the garden?
6 What is this overhanging ledge of rock that shelters us compared with the mercy of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 that overshadowed us?
7 What is the soil of this cave compared with the garden land? Does this earth, scattered with stones, compared to that garden planted with delicious fruit trees?”
8 And Aḏam said to Ḥawwah, “Look at your eyes, and at mine, which before beheld messengers praising in the shamayim without ceasing.
9 Now we do not see as we did; our eyes have become of flesh; they cannot see like they saw before.”
10 Aḏam said again to Ḥawwah, “What is our body today, compared to what it was in former days, when we lived in the garden?”
11 After this, Aḏam did not want to enter the cave under the overhanging rock. He never wanted to enter it again.
12 But he bowed to Elohim’s Commands; and said to himself, “Unless I enter the cave, I shall again be a transgressor.”
