Twelfth apparition of Satan to Aḏam and Ḥawwah, while Aḏam was praying over the offering upon the altar; when Satan smote him.

1 THEN Satan, the hater of all good, envious of Aḏam and of his offering through which he found favour with Elohim, hastened and took a sharp stone from among sharp iron-stones; appeared in the form of a man, and went and stood by Aḏam and Ḥawwah.

2 Aḏam was then offering on the altar, and had begun to pray, with his hands spread unto Elohim.

3 Then Satan hastened with the sharp iron-stone he had with him, and with it pierced Aḏam on the right side, when flowed blood and water, then Aḏam fell upon the altar like a corpse. And Satan fled.

4 Then Ḥawwah came, and took Aḏam and placed him below the altar. And there she stayed, weeping over him; while a stream of blood flowed from Aḏam’s side upon his offering.

5 But Elohim looked upon the death of Aḏam. He then sent His Word, and raised him up and said unto him, “Fulfil thy offering, for indeed, Aḏam, it is worth much, and there is no shortcoming in it.”

6 Elohim said further unto Aḏam, “Thus will it also happen to Me, on the earth, when I shall be pierced and blood shall flow blood and water from My side and run over My body, which is the true offering; and which shall be offered on the altar as a perfect offering.”

7 Then Elohim commanded Aḏam to finish his offering, and when he had ended it he worshipped before Elohim, and praised Him for the signs He had showed him.

8 And Elohim healed Aḏam in one day, which is the end of the seven weeks; and that is the fiftieth day.

9 Then Aḏam and Ḥawwah returned from the mountain, and went into the Cave of Treasures, as they were used to do. This completed for Aḏam and Ḥawwah, one hundred and forty days since their coming out of the garden.

10 Then they both stood up that night and prayed to Elohim. And when it was morning, they went out, and went down westward of the cave, to the place where their corn was, and there rested under the shadow of a tree, as they were wont.

11 But when there a multitude of beasts came all round them. It was Satan’s doing, in his wickedness; in order to wage war against Aḏam through marriage.
