The incense was from the eastern border of the garden; and the myrrh from the western border, from where bitterness came over Adam. He and Eve worshipped Him and gave Him thanks, because He had dealt mercifully with them. And they did so, one by one. For the mouth of the cave was on the north side. In this case, the word rod simply means a kind of long, thin piece of gold of unspecified size and weight.
And pray to God with burning heart and a sweet voice, to forgive us. Adam also went down into the water; and they stood praying; and besought the Lord to forgive them their offense, and to restore them to their former state. Be glad and rejoice! God is favorable to you, and He sent me to Adam.

I have brought him the glad tidings of salvation, and of his being filled with bright light as he was at first. And thinking Satan's appearance was real, she came out of the sea. Then Satan hid himself from her, and she saw him no more. And the Word of God came from heaven, raised him out of the water, and said to him, "Go up the high bank to Eve. He then took her and they both returned to the cave. He eloquently appeals for food and drink.

But You gave me understanding and knowledge, and a pure heart and a right mind from you, that I should name them after Thine own mind regarding the naming of them. But now they are all estranged from me. Then I awoke; and when I saw her and knew who she was, I said, 'This is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; from now on she shall be called woman.

For when we transgress at first You spared us and did not make us die. But since you transgressed, and came into this strange land, all these trials are come over you. But he threw them to them from a distance; for they might not come near the cherub by reason of their flesh, that could not come near the fire. But now Adam trembled before the angels and was afraid of them. But now, we do not know what misery and suffering may come over us from eating them.
O God, we transgressed against You one hour, and all these trials and sorrows have come over us until this day. Make these forty-three days an equivalent for the one hour in which we transgressed. At that time I will give you fruit from the Tree of Life, and you will eat, and live forever, you, and Eve, and your righteous descendants.
Go and eat of it, you and Eve. I know not what may come over me from it. And what shall I desire and ask of you, O God, when it is gone? And why didn't you have this fear before you transgressed? Eve also took her fig, and put it on the incense. There we will pray to God, and ask Him to give us some of the Water of Life to drink. Therefore, we will ask him to give us some of the Water of Life, and to quench our thirst with it, rather than with a drink of water of this land.
Give me of the Water of Life that I may drink of it and live. The third prophecy of the coming of Christ. And that shall be when the end of the world is come. It was noon-day; and when they drew near to the cave, they saw a large fire by it. This is believed to be a reference to the cross whereby Christ bled profusely above the people below. Its exact location is not precisely known, but the Church of the Holy Sepulcher is believed to have been constructed on this hill. And Adam said to Eve, "What is that fire by our cave? We have done nothing in it to cause this fire. As to this fire, we have never known anything like it, neither do we know what to call it.
And where shall we flee from before the face of the Lord?

Since, in regards to the garden, He will not let us live in it, and He has deprived us of the good things thereof; but He has placed us in this cave, in which we have borne darkness, trials and hardships, until at last we have found comfort therein. And who knows but that the darkness of that land may be far greater than the darkness of this land? And who knows whether it will be far or near, O Eve? Where it will please God to put us, may be far from the garden, O Eve? Or where God will prevent us from beholding Him, because we have transgressed His commandment, and because we have made requests of Him at all times?
Where shall we find Him, that He may think of us, as regards the covenant He has made on our behalf? And they kept looking, He and Eve, towards the cave, and at the fire that flared up around it. For he had gathered trees and dry grasses, and had carried and brought them to the cave, and had set fire to them, in order to consume the cave and what was in it. That was the forty-fifth day. But the angel of the Lord was guarding it.
But I have had patience with you, until the end of the world. But the fire went on burning around the cave like a coal-fire the whole day; which was the forty-sixth day Adam and Eve had spent since they came out of the garden. And they were afraid. But the fire is not changed in its nature, nor altered from its creation. Therefore it now has power over us; and when we come near it, it scorches our flesh. Description of hell.
How different the flame and heat thereof are from the garden of delights and the good things in it! He has deprived you of the Godhead, and of an exalted state like Me, and has not kept his word to you; but has, after all, become your enemy. He is the one who made this fire in which he meant to burn you and Eve. Or that he loved you and wished to raise you on high? You will not be delivered from it until My coming; just like you cannot go into your cave right now because of the great fire around it; not until My Word comes and makes a way for you on the day My covenant is fulfilled.
Then He will make a way for you, and you shall have rest. Leave us not to be consumed and plagued by this burning fire; neither require us for having transgressed Your commandment.
But the wounds remained on their bodies. If not, wouldn't he have destroyed you? He has burnt your bodies with fire, and has made you taste the taste of fire, for the taste of the garden; and has made you see the burning of fire, and the evil of it, and the power it has over you. But as to the Godhead he cannot give it to you, neither fulfil his speech to you. No, he was bitter against you and your descendants, that will come after you. Reference chapter L whereby Adam and Eve seek garments with which to cover their nakedness..
So Adam said to Eve 2 "Look, the fire has burnt our flesh in this world; but how will it be when we are dead, and Satan shall punish our souls?
The Untold Story of Adam and Eve
Is not our deliverance long and far off, unless God come, and in mercy to us fulfil His promise? For it was in their thoughts, that they never should enter it, when they saw the fire around it. After the sun had set, they went out of it. This was the forty-seventh day after they came out of the garden. And when you have hurled it, get away from there quickly. And so it was by God's order. But they didn't know what had happened; because when the fell asleep they were under the sky, and not under a dome; and when they saw it, they were afraid.
And why has this rock spread itself over us like a tent? Or will He close the earth over us? And Adam stood praying like that until the morning. From verse 9 that says "when they saw it" and verse 11 that says "shut us up in this prison", we can conclude that the dome had holes in its sides that were big enough to let in light and air but were too small to allow Adam and Eve to escape. Another conclusion would be that the holes were large but too high up for Adam and Eve to reach, however the former is more likely.
It is he who threw down this rock to kill you under it, and Eve with you, and thus to prevent you from living on the earth. But, O Adam, I will not bring you from under this rock until three days and three nights have passed. Their flesh was dried up, and their eyes and hearts were troubled from crying and sorrow. Chapter L - Adam and Eve seek to cover their nakedness. Let us go and do some work for our bodies.
But they found nothing, and knew not how to do the work. Yet their bodies were stained, and they were speechless from cold and heat. There you will find skins of sheep that were left after lions ate the carcasses. Take them and make garments for yourselves, and clothe yourselves with them. At this time, the garments that the Lord had given them in Genesis were burned off so that Adam and Eve were again naked. Chapter LI - "What is his beauty that you should have followed him? But as they got closer to him they were afraid of him, and of his hideous look.
Where, then, is the beauty that was on him? Where is his divinity? Where is his light?

Where is the glory that rested on him? And what have you gained by obeying him? See his evil works and then look at Me; at Me, your Creator, and at the good deeds I do you. Just as the owners of these skins have died and have wasted away, so also shall we die and pass away. And the angel said to Adam, "Go forth, and bring some palm-thorns. And he took the thorns and stuck them into the skins, before their eyes.
And they ceased not from prayer the whole of that night. And why have you left of thine own accord the eastern border, in which was your living place? But I will deliver what is left of the righteous among them; and I will bring them to a distant land, and the land in which you live now shall remain desolate and without one inhabitant in it. But their flesh was dried up, and they were weak from fasting and praying, and from the sorrow they felt at having trespassed against God.
And when the sun was risen they both went out of the cave; their heads were wandering from heaviness of sorrow and they didn't know where they were going. And they began to go up that border until they came to the eastern border beyond which there was no more land. And the cherub turned around, as if to put them to death; according to the commandment God had given him. For he was afraid that God would destroy him if they went into the garden without His order. But when he raised it over Adam and Eve, the flame of the sword did not flash forth.
And the cherub stood wondering. They were divided between joy and sorrow. Do you intend to go into the garden, from which I brought you out? It cannot be today; but only when the covenant I have made with you is fulfilled. For when I was in my former bright nature, then I could see you. I sang praises as you do; and my heart was far above you. And now I have come to this, that I cannot see you, and you do not serve me like you used to do. For I have become animal flesh. But we would not, and we did not take his advice.
And if it had not been for God's strength that was with us, we could not have prevailed against him to hurl him from heaven. For if he had remained in heaven, nothing, not even one angel would have remained in it. And death, which God brought to him, he has also brought to you, O Adam, because you obeyed him, and trespassed against God. Chapter LVI - A chapter of divine comfort. But, O Adam, he will not fulfil even one of the things he told you. There the angels began to comfort and to strengthen them, and then departed from them towards heaven, to their Creator, who had sent them.
He then called to Adam, and said, "O Adam, come, let me speak to you. I am he who sent her, using my deceitful speech, to deceive you, until you both ate of the fruit of the tree and abandoned the command of God. Or can you clothe me in the same bright nature in which God had clothed me? Where is that slick speech of yours that you had with us at first, when we were in the garden? Of course not.

For I myself have never even thought of obtaining what I promised. Neither will there be any deliverance from my hands until the day promised you by your God. The changes made are profound.
They weary of the drudgery, so, as an act of conciliation, humans are created to toil in their place. A goddess fashions them of clay, seven male and seven female, all nameless. Compare this to the solicitude the Lord shows his Adam and Eve, their freedom even to disobey and the absolute importance of their choice, dire as it is. The Genesis text grants the difficulties of human life and at the same time evokes an essential dignity, beauty and autonomy. These ancient narratives, even in their differences, are part of a genre whose insight and power are no doubt beyond the full understanding of our modern minds.
They generally agree that people came late into the world, and that the world had a beginning. Accustomed as we are to knowing these things, we forget that neither is obvious. In any case, it is a tendentious reading of any ancient text that would apply modern standards of plausibility to myth. God sent three angels after her and commanded them to bring her back to her husband by force if she would not come willingly.
But when the angels found her by the Red Sea they were unable to convince her to return and could not force her to obey them. Eventually, a strange deal is struck, wherein Lilith promised not to harm newborn children if they are protected by an amulet with the names of the three angels written on it:. The Alphabet of Ben Sira appears to combine legends of female demons with the idea of the 'first Eve. Later legends also characterize her as a beautiful woman who seduces men or copulates with them in their sleep a succubus , then spawns demon children.
