Text Commentary

1And eighteen days passed by. Then Satan in anger transformed himself into the brightness of the angels, and went off to the River Tigris, to Eve, and found her weeping. 2And the devil pretended to share her grief himself; and he began to weep and said to her, Come out of the river and lament no more. Cease now from your sorrow and your groans. Why are you anxious, you and your husband Adam? 3The Lord God has heard your groans and accepted your penitence; 1 Or ‘penance’. and all we angels have entreated him on your 4behalf and made supplication to the Lord, and he has sent me to fetch you out of the water and give you the food 2 Lit. ‘nourishment’. you had in Paradise, the loss of which has caused your present wails. 5So come out of the water now, and I will take you to the place where your food has been made ready.

Notes:

1 Or ‘penance’.

2 Lit. ‘nourishment’.
