1 After this Satan called to his hosts, all of which came to him, and said to him:
2 “Our master, what will you do?”
3 Then he said to them, “This Aḏam, whom Elohim created out of the dust, is the one who has taken our reign from us. Come, let us gather together and kill him. Hurl a rock at him and at Ḥawwah, and crush them under it.”
4 When Satan’s hosts heard these words they came to the part of the mountain where Aḏam and Ḥawwah were asleep.
5 Then Satan and his host took a huge rock, broad and smooth, and without blemish. He thought to himself, “If there should be a hole in the rock, when it fell on them the hole in the rock might align over them so they would escape and not die.”
6 He then said to his hosts, “Take up this stone and drop it flat on them so that it doesn’t roll off them to somewhere else. And when you have hurled it at them get away from there quickly.”
7 And they did as he told them. But as the rock fell down from the mountain toward Aḏam and Ḥawwah, Elohim Commanded the rock to become a covering over them so that it did them no harm. And so it was by Elohim’s order.
8 But when the rock fell, the whole earth quaked because of it, and was shaken from the size of the rock.
9 And as it quaked and shook Aḏam and Ḥawwah awoke from sleep and found themselves under a covering of rock. But they didn’t know what had happened because when they fell asleep they were under the sky and not under a covering, and when they saw it they were afraid.
10 Then Aḏam said to Ḥawwah, “How has the mountain bent itself and the earth quaked and shaken on our account? And why has this rock spread itself over us like a tent?
11 Does Elohim intend to plague us and to shut us up in this prison? Or will He close the earth over us?
12 He is angry with us for our having come out of the cave without His permission and for our having done so of our own accord without asking Him when we left the cave and came to this place.”
13 Then Ḥawwah said, “Aḏam, if indeed the earth shook for our sake and this rock formed a tent over us because of our transgression we will be sorry, because our punishment will be long.
14 But get up and pray to Elohim to let us know concerning this, and what this rock is that is spread over us like a tent.”
15 Then Aḏam stood up and prayed before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 to let him know what had brought about this difficult time. And Aḏam stood praying like that until the morning.
