1 When Aḏam heard these words from Elohim, he took Ḥawwah and went from the northern side of the garden to the south of it, by the river of water where they once fasted.

2 But as they were on their way, and before they arrived, Satan, the wicked one, had heard the Word of Elohim communing with Aḏam respecting his covering.

3 It distressed him, and he hurried to the place where the sheepskins were, with the intention of taking them and throwing them into the sea or of burning them so that Aḏam and Ḥawwah would not find them.

4 But as he was about to take them, the Word of Elohim came from the shamayim and bound him by the side of those skins until Aḏam and Ḥawwah came near him. But as they got closer to him they were afraid of him and of his hideous appearance.

5 Then the Word of Elohim came to Aḏam and Ḥawwah, and said to them, “This is he who was hidden in the serpent, who deceived you, and stripped from you your garment of light and glory.

6 This is he who promised you majesty and divinity. Where is the beauty that was on him? Where is his divinity? Where is his light? Where is the glory that rested on him?

7 Now his form is hideous. He has become abominable among messengers, and he has come to be called Satan.

8 Aḏam, he wished to steal from you this earthly garment of sheepskins so that he could destroy it and not let you be covered with it.

9 What is his beauty that you should have followed him? And what have you gained by obeying him? See his evil works and then look at Me, your Creator. Look at the good deeds I do for you.

10 I bound him until you came and saw him and his weakness and that no power is left with him.”

11 And Elohim released him from his bonds.
