1 After this Aḏam and Ḥawwah said no more, but cried before Elohim because of their creation, and their bodies that required an earthly covering.

2 Then Aḏam said to Ḥawwah, “Ḥawwah, this is the skin of beasts with which we shall be covered, but when we put it on we shall be wearing a sign of death on our bodies. Just as the owners of these skins have died and have decomposed, so also shall we die and pass away.”

3 Then Aḏam and Ḥawwah took the skins and went back to the Cave of Treasures. When they were in it, they stood and prayed, as was their habit.

4 And they thought how they could make garments of those skins because they had no skill.

5 Then Elohim sent to them His messenger to show them how to accomplish this. And the messenger said to Aḏam, “Go out and bring some palm-thorns.” Then Aḏam went out, and brought some, as the messenger had commanded him.

6 Then the messenger began before them to work the skins, after the manner of one who prepares a shirt. And he took the thorns and stuck them into the skins before their eyes.

7 Then the messenger again stood up and prayed to Elohim that the thorns in those skins should be hidden, so as to be as if it were sewn with one thread.

8 And so it was, by Elohim’s order, and they became garments for Aḏam and Ḥawwah. And He clothed them with the skins.

9 From that time the nakedness of their bodies was covered from the sight of each other’s eyes.

10 And this happened at the end of the fifty-first day.

11 Then when Aḏam’s and Ḥawwah’s bodies were covered they stood and prayed and sought mercy of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and forgiveness, and gave Him thanks because He had mercy on them and had covered their nakedness. And they did not stop praying the entirety of that night.

12 Then, when the morning dawned at sunrise, they said their prayers, as was their custom, and then went out of the cave.

13 And Aḏam said to Ḥawwah, “Since we don’t know what there is to the west of this cave, let us go out and see it today.” Then they departed and went toward the western border.
