1 Then Satan took Aḏam and Ḥawwah by the hand and started to lead them out of the cave.

2 But when they had gone a little way out of it Elohim knew that Satan had overcome them and had brought them out before the forty days were ended in order to take them to some distant place and to destroy them.

3 Then the Word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Elohim again came and cursed Satan and drove him away from them.

4 And Elohim began to speak to Aḏam and Ḥawwah, saying to them, “What made you come out of the cave to this place?”

5 Then Aḏam said to Elohim, “Did you create a man before us? Because, when we were in the cave there suddenly came to us a friendly old man who said to us, ‘I am a messenger from Elohim to you, to bring you back to some place of rest.’

6 And we believed that he was a messenger from you, O Elohim, and we came out with him. We did not know where we should go with him.”

7 Then Elohim said to Aḏam, “This is the father of the evil arts who brought you and Ḥawwah out of the Garden of Delights. And when he saw that you and Ḥawwah both joined together in fasting and praying so that you did not come out of the cave before the end of the forty days, he wished to make your efforts wasted and break your mutual bond in order to take away all hope from you and to drive you to some place where he might destroy you.

8 Because he couldn’t do anything to you unless he showed himself in the likeness of you.

9 Therefore he came to you with a face like your own and began to give you signs as if they were all true.

10 But because I am merciful and am favorable to you, I did not allow him to destroy you. Instead, I drove him away from you.

11 Now, Aḏam, take Ḥawwah and return to your cave and remain in it until the morning after the fortieth day. And when you come out, go toward the eastern gate of the garden.”

12 Then Aḏam and Ḥawwah worshipped Elohim, and praised and baraḵ Him for the deliverance that had come to them from Him. And they returned to the cave. This happened in the evening of the thirty-ninth day.

13 Then Aḏam and Ḥawwah stood up and with a fervent passion, prayed to Elohim to give them strength, for they had become weak because of hunger and thirst and prayer. But they watched the entire night praying until morning.

14 Then Aḏam said to Ḥawwah, “Get up. Let us go toward the eastern gate of the garden as Elohim told us.”

15 And they said their prayers as they were accustomed to do every day, and they left the cave to go near to the eastern gate of the garden.

16 Then Aḏam and Ḥawwah stood up and prayed and appealed to Elohim to strengthen them and to send them something to satisfy their hunger.

17 But after they finished their prayers they were too weak to move.

18 Then the Word of Elohim came again, and said to them, “Aḏam, get up, go and bring the two figs here.”

19 Then Aḏam and Ḥawwah got up, and went until they came near to the cave.
