The children of Yereḏ are led astray.

1 THEN Elohim revealed to him again the promise He had made to Aḏam; He explained to him the 5500 years, and revealed unto him the mystery of His coming upon the earth.

2 And Elohim said to Yereḏ, “As to that fire which thou hast taken from the altar to light the lamp withal, let it abide with you to give light to the bodies; and let it not come out of the cave, until the body of Aḏam comes out of it.

3 But, O Yereḏ, take care of the fire, that it burn bright in the lamp; neither go thou again out of the cave, until thou receivest an order through a vision, and not in an apparition, when seen by thee.

4 “Then command again thy people not to hold intercourse with the children of Qayin, and not to learn their ways; for I am Elohim who loves not hatred and works of iniquity.”

5 Elohim gave also many other commandments to Yereḏ, and blessed him. And then withdrew His Word from him.

6 Then Yereḏ drew near with his children, took some fire, and came down to the cave, and lighted the lamp before the body of Aḏam; and he gave his people\ commandments as Elohim had told him to do.

7 This sign happened to Yereḏ at the end of his four hundred and fiftieth year; as  did also many other wonders, we do not record. But we record only this one for shortness sake, and in order not to lengthen our narrative.

8 And Yereḏ continued to teach his children eighty years; but after that they began to transgress the commandments he had given them, and to do many things without his counsel. They began to go down from the Qodesh Mountain one after another, and to mix with the children of Qayin, in foul fellowships.

9 Now the reason for which the children of Yereḏ went down the Qodesh Mountain, is this, that we will now reveal unto you.
