The death of Aḏam.

1 WHEN Aḏam had ended his commandment to Shĕth, his limbs were loosened, his hands and feet lost all power, his mouth became dumb, and his tongue ceased altogether to speak. He closed his eyes and gave up the ghost.

2 But when his children saw that he was dead, they threw themselves over him, men and women, old and young, weeping.

3 The death of Aḏam took place at the end of nine hundred and thirty years that be lived upon the earth; on the fifteenth day of Barmudeh, after the reckoning of an epact of the sun, at the ninth hour.

4 It was on a sixth day, the very day on which be was created, and on which he rested; and the hour at which he died, was the same as that at which he came out of the garden.

5 Then Shĕth wound him up well, and embalmed him with plenty of sweet spices, from sacred trees and from the Qodesh Mountain; and be laid his body on the eastern side of the inside of the cave, the side of the incense; and placed in front of him a lamp-stand kept burning.

6 Then his children stood before him weeping and wailing over him the whole night until break of day.

7 Then Shĕth and big son Enosh, and Qĕynan, the son of Enosh, went out and took good offerings to present unto 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and they came to the altar upon which Aḏam offered gifts to Elohim, when he did offer.

8 But Ḥawwah said to them “Wait until we have first asked Elohim to accept our offering, and to keep by Him the Soul of Aḏam His servant, and to take it up to rest.”

9 And they all stood up and prayed.
