1 Aḏam and Ḥawwah stood, looking at the fire and were unable to come near the cave from their fear of the fire.

2 And Satan kept on bringing trees and throwing them into the fire until the flames of the fire rose up very high and covered the entire cave, thinking in his mind, to consume the cave with the great fire. But the messenger of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 was guarding it.

3 But he could not curse Satan nor wound him by word because he had no authority over him, neither did he attempt to do so with words from his mouth.

4 Therefore the messenger tolerated him without uttering a bad word against him, until the Word of Elohim came to Satan saying, “Go away from here at once before you deceive My servants, for this time you seek to destroy them.

5 Were it not for My mercy I would have destroyed you and your hosts from off the earth. But I have had patience with you until the end of the world.”

6 Then Satan fled from before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄. But the fire went on burning around the cave like a coal-fire the entire day. This was the forty-sixth day that Aḏam and Ḥawwah had spent since they came out of the garden.

7 And when Aḏam and Ḥawwah saw that the heat of the fire had began to cool down, they started to walk toward the cave to get into it as they usually did but they could not because of the heat of the fire.

8 Then they both began crying because the fire separated them from the cave, and the fire came toward them, burning, and they were afraid.

9 Then Aḏam said to Ḥawwah, “See this fire of which we have a portion within us. It formerly obeyed us, but it no longer does so now, for we have violated the boundaries of creation and changed our condition and our nature has been altered. But the fire is not changed in its nature, nor altered from its creation. Therefore it now has power over us and when we come near it, it scorches our flesh.”
