Aḏam is troubled by his wedding with Ḥawwah.
1 BUT when Aḏam heard these words from Satan, he sorrowed much, because of his oath and of his promise, and said, “Shall I commit adultery with my flesh and my bones, and shall I sin against myself, for Elohim to destroy me, and to blot me out from off the face of the earth?
2 “Since, when at first, I ate of the tree, He drove me out of the garden into this strange land, and deprived me of my bright nature, and brought death upon me. If, then, I should do this, He will cut off my life from the earth, and He will cast me into hell, and will plague me there a long time.
3 “But Elohim never spoke the words thou hast told me; and ye are not Elohim’s messengers, nor yet sent from Him. But ye are devils, come to me under the false appearance of messengers. Away from me; ye cursed of Elohim!”
4 Then those devils fled from before Aḏam. And he and Ḥawwah arose, and returned to the Cave of Treasures, and went into it.
5 Then Aḏam said to Ḥawwah, “If thou sawest what I did, tell it not; for I sinned against Elohim by swearing by His great name, and I have placed my hand another time into that of Satan.” Ḥawwah, then, held her peace, as Aḏam told her.
6 Then Aḏam arose, and spread his hands unto Elohim, beseeching and entreating Him with tears, to forgive him what he had done. And Aḏam remained thus standing and praying forty days and forty nights. He neither ate nor drank until he dropped down upon the earth from hunger and thirst.
7 Then Elohim sent His Word unto Aḏam, who raised him up from where he lay, and said unto him, “O Aḏam, why hast thou sworn by My name, and why hast thou made agreement with Satan another time?”
8 But Aḏam wept, and said, “O Elohim, forgive me, for I did this unwittingly; believing they were Elohim’s messengers.”
9 And Elohim forgave Aḏam, saying, to him, “Beware of Satan.”
10 And He withdrew His Word from Aḏam.
11 Then Aḏam’s heart was comforted; and he took Ḥawwah, and they went out of the cave, to make some food for their bodies.
12 But from that day Aḏam struggled in his mind about his wedding Ḥawwah; afraid as he was to do it, lest Elohim should be wroth with him.
13 Then Aḏam and Ḥawwah went to the river of water, and sat on the bank, as people do when they enjoy themselves.
14 But Satan was jealous of them; and would destroy them.
