1 When the morning of the day after they had eaten food came, Aḏam and Ḥawwah prayed in the cave, and Aḏam said to Ḥawwah, “Look, we asked Elohim for food, and He gave it. But now let us also ask Him to give us a drink of water.”

2 Then they got up, and went to the bank of the stream of water, that was on the south border of the garden, which they had thrown themselves in before. And they stood on the bank, and prayed to Elohim that He would Command them to drink the water.

3 Then the Word of Elohim came to Aḏam, and said to him, “O Aḏam, your body has become brutish, and requires water to drink. Take some and drink it, you and Ḥawwah, then give thanks and praise.”

4 Aḏam and Ḥawwah then went down to the stream and drank from it, until their bodies felt refreshed. After they drank, they praised Elohim and then returned to their cave, as was their custom. This happened at the end of eighty-three days.

5 Then on the eighty-fourth day, they took the two figs and hung them in the cave together with the leaves of the figs. To them these were a sign and a beraḵah from Elohim. And they placed them there so that if their descendants came there they would see the wonderful things Elohim had done for them.

6 Then Aḏam and Ḥawwah stood outside the cave again and asked Elohim to show them some food with which they could nourish their bodies.

7 Then the Word of Elohim came and said to him, “Aḏam, go down west of the cave until you come to a land that has dark soil, and there you will find food.”

8 And Aḏam obeyed the Word of Elohim and took Ḥawwah, and went down to a land that had dark soil and found wheat growing ripe in the ear, and figs to eat; and Aḏam rejoiced over it.

9 Then the Word of Elohim came again to Aḏam, and said to him, “Take some of this wheat and make yourselves some bread with it, to nourish your body.” And Elohim gave Aḏam’s heart wisdom to work the corn until it became bread.

10 Aḏam accomplished it all until he grew very faint and weak. He then returned to the cave rejoicing at what he had learned and what he had done with the wheat, until it was made into bread.
