1 Then Elohim considered the words of Aḏam that they were true, and that he could not wait long for His order, respecting the counsel of Satan.

2 And Elohim approved Aḏam in what he had thought concerning this, and in the prayer he had offered in His presence; and the Word of Elohim came to Aḏam and said to him, “O Aḏam, if only you had had this caution at first, before you came out of the garden into this land!”

3 After that, Elohim sent His messenger who had brought gold, and the messenger who had brought incense, and the messenger who had brought myrrh to Aḏam, that they should inform him respecting his marriage to Ḥawwah.

4 Then those messengers said to Aḏam, “Take the gold and give it to Ḥawwah as a wedding gift, and promise to marry her; then give her some incense and myrrh as a present; and be you both will be one flesh.”

5 Aḏam obeyed the messengers, and took the gold and put it into Ḥawwah’s bosom in her garment; and promised to marry her with his hand.

6 Then the messengers commanded Aḏam and Ḥawwah to get up and pray forty days and forty nights; when that was done, then Aḏam was to have sexual intercourse with his wife; for then this would be an act pure and undefiled; so that he would have children who would multiply, and replenish the face of the earth.

7 Then both Aḏam and Ḥawwah received the words of the messengers; and the messengers departed from them.

8 Then Aḏam and Ḥawwah began to fast and pray, until the end of the forty days; and then they had sexual intercourse, as the messengers had told them. And from the time Aḏam left the garden until he wedded Ḥawwah, were two hundred and twenty-three days, that is seven months and thirteen days.

9 This was how Satan’s war with Aḏam was won by Aḏam and Satan was defeated.
