1 Then the Word of Elohim came to Aḏam, and said to him:
2 “Aḏam, look at that garden of joy and at this earth of toil, and see, the garden is full of messengers, but look at yourself alone on this earth with Satan whom you obeyed.
3 If you had submitted and been obedient to Me and had kept My Word, you would be with My messengers in My garden.
4 But when you sinned and obeyed Satan, you became his guests among his messengers, that are full of wickedness, and you came to this earth that produces thorns and thistles for you.
5 O Aḏam, ask the one who deceived you to give you the divine nature he promised you, or to make you a garden as I had made for you, or to fill you with that same bright nature with which I had filled you.
6 Ask him to make you a body like the one I made you, or to give you a day of rest as I gave you, or to create within you a wise soul, as I created for you; or to take you from here to some other earth than this one which I gave you. But, Aḏam, he will not fulfill even one of the things he told you.
7 Acknowledge My favor toward you, and My mercy on you, My creature. Acknowledge that I have not shown vengeance on you for your transgression against Me, but in My pity for you I have promised you that at the end of the great five and a half days I will come and save you.”
8 Then Elohim said again to Aḏam and Ḥawwah, “Get up, go down from here before the keruḇ with a sword of fire in his hand destroys you.”
9 But Aḏam’s heart was comforted by Elohim’s words to him, and he worshipped before Him.
10 And Elohim Commanded His messengers to escort Aḏam and Ḥawwah to the cave with joy instead of the fear that had come over them.
11 Then the messengers took up Aḏam and Ḥawwah and brought them down the mountain by the garden, with songs and praises and hymns until they arrived at the cave. There the messengers began to comfort and to strengthen them, and then departed from them towards the shamayim to their Creator, who had sent them.
12 But after the messengers had departed from Aḏam and Ḥawwah, Satan came with shamefacedness and stood at the entrance of the cave in which were Aḏam and Ḥawwah. He then called to Aḏam, and said, “O Aḏam, come, let me speak to you.”
13 Then Aḏam came out of the cave, thinking he was one of Elohim’s messengers that had come to give him some good counsel.
