The beasts are reconciled.

1 WHEN Aḏam and Ḥawwah heard these words from Elohim, they wept and sobbed yet more; but they strengthened their hearts in Elohim, because they now felt that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 was to them like a father and a mother; and for this very reason, they wept before Him, and sought mercy from Him.

2 Then Elohim had pity on them, and said: “O Aḏam, I have made My covenant with thee, and I will not turn from it; neither will I let thee return to the garden, until My covenant of the great five days and a half is fulfilled.”

3 Then Aḏam said unto Elohim, “O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, Thou didst create us, and make us fit to be in the garden; and before I transgressed, Thou madest all beasts come to me, that I should name them.

4 “Thy grace was then on me; and I named every one according to Thy mind; and Thou madest them all subject unto me.

5 “But now, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Elohim, that I have transgressed Thy commandment, all beasts will rise against me and will devour me, and Ḥawwah Thy handmaid; and will cut off our life from the face of the earth.

6 “I therefore beseech Thee, O Elohim, that, since Thou hast made us come out of the garden, and hast made us be in a strange land, Thou wilt not let the beasts hurt us.”

7 When 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 heard these words from Aḏam, He had pity on him, and felt that he had truly said that the beasts of the field would rise and devour him and Ḥawwah, because He, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, was angry with them two on account of their transgression.

8 Then Elohim commanded the beasts, and the birds, and all that moves upon the earth, to come to Aḏam and to be familiar with him, and not to trouble him and Ḥawwah; nor yet any of the good and righteous among their posterity.

9 Then the beasts did obeisance to Aḏam, according to the commandment of Elohim; except the serpent, against which Elohim was wroth. It did not come to Aḏam, with the beasts.
