1 They were not very far from the cave when Satan came toward them. He hid himself between them and the cave in the form of two ravenous lions that had been three days without food. And they came toward Aḏam and Ḥawwah as if to break them in pieces and devour them.

2 Then Aḏam and Ḥawwah cried out and begged Elohim to deliver them from their paws.

3 Then the Word of Elohim came to them and drove away the lions from them.

4 And Elohim said to Aḏam, “Aḏam, what do you seek on the western border? And why have you left of your own will the eastern border which was your living place?

5 Now, turn back to your cave and remain in it, so that Satan won’t deceive you or achieve his goal to overtake you.

6 In this western border, Aḏam, there will go from you a descendant that shall replenish it. And they will defile themselves with their sins, and with their yielding to the commands of Satan, and by following his works.

7 Therefore will I bring waters of a flood to cover them and overwhelm them all. But I will deliver what is left of the righteous among them and I will bring them to a distant land, but the land in which you live now shall remain desolate and without one inhabitant in it.”

8 After Elohim had spoken to them, they went back to the Cave of Treasures. But their flesh was dried up, and they were weak from fasting and praying, and from the sorrow they felt at having sinned against Elohim.
