1 Then Aḏam rose and prayed to Elohim, saying, “This fire has separated us from the cave in which You have Commanded us to live; and now, we cannot go into it.”

2 Then Elohim heard Aḏam, and sent him His Word, that said:

3 “Aḏam, see this fire! It is different from the flame and heat from the garden of delights and the good things in it!

4 When you were under My control all creatures yielded to you, but after you transgressed My Commandment they all rose up over you.”

5 Elohim said again to him, “Aḏam, see how Satan has exalted you! He has deprived you of the Almighty and of an exalted state like Me, and has not kept his word to you but has ended up to become your enemy. He is the one who made this fire in which he meant to burn you and Ḥawwah.

6 Aḏam, why has he not kept his agreement with you even one day, but has deprived you of the glory that was on you when you obeyed his command?

7 Aḏam, do you think that he loved you when he made this agreement with you? Do you think that he loved you and wished to raise you on high?

8 No, Aḏam, he did not do anything out of love for you. He wished to force you to come out of light and into darkness, and from an exalted state to degradation, and from glory to this humble state, from joy to sorrow, and from rest to hunger and fainting.”

9 Elohim also said to Aḏam, “See this fire kindled by Satan around your cave? See this curious thing that surrounds you? Know that it will surround both you and your descendants when you obey his command and he will plague you with fire and you will go down into Gĕy-Hinnom after you are dead.

10 Then, you will experience the burning of his fire that will surround you and your descendants. You will not be delivered from it until My Bĕn’s coming. Just as you cannot go into your cave right now because of the great fire around it, a way for you will not be made for you until My Word comes on the day My Covenant is fulfilled.

11 There is no way for you at present to come from this life to rest until he who is My Word comes. Then He will make a way for you, and you shall have rest.” Then Elohim called to the fire that burned around the cave with His Word, that it split itself in half until Aḏam passed through it. Then the fire parted itself by Elohim’s order and a way was made for Aḏam.

12 And Elohim withdrew His Word from Aḏam.
