1Then Seth saw God's hand stretched out and holding 2Adam; and he delivered him over to Michael, saying, Let him be in your charge till the day of judgement in punishment, till the last years when I will turn his sorrow into joy. 3Then shall he sit on the throne of his supplanter. 1 Or, according to some MSS, ‘of his seducer’. 4And the Lord said again to the angels Michael and Uriel, Bring me three linen sheets and spread them out over Adam, and spread other sheets over his son Abel, and bury Adam and his son. 5And all the angelic powers marched in procession in front of Adam; and the sleep of the dead was consecrated. 6And the angels Michael and Uriel buried Adam and Abel in the regions of Paradise, before the eyes of Seth and his mother and no one else. 7And Michael and Uriel said, Just as you have seen us doing, so do you also bury your dead.
