1 Then Aḏam and Ḥawwah spread their hands before Elohim, praying and begging Him to drive Satan away from them so that he could not harm them or force them to deny Elohim.

2 Then, suddenly, Elohim sent to them His messenger who drove Satan away from them. This happened about sunset on the fifty-third day after they had come out of the garden.

3 Then Aḏam and Ḥawwah went into the cave, and stood up and lowered their faces to the ground to pray to Elohim.

4 But before they prayed Aḏam said to Ḥawwah, “Look, you have seen what temptations have befallen us in this land. Come, let us get up and ask Elohim to forgive us the sins we have committed and we will not come out until the end of the day before the fortieth day. And if we die in here He will save us.”

5 Then Aḏam and Ḥawwah got up and joined together in entreating Elohim.

6 They continued praying like this in the cave and did not come out of it in the night or day, until their prayers went up out of their mouths like a flame of fire.
