1Eve heard this and believed it, and she got out of the water of the river; and her body was blue with cold from the water. 1 Or ‘she was quivering all over with cold from the water’. The force of the simile in the text as it stands (lit. ‘her flesh was like grass from the cold of the water’) is obscure. 2And when she had got out she collapsed. And the devil helped her to her feet and led her to Adam. 3But when Adam saw her, and the devil with her, he wept and cried aloud and said, O Eve, Eve, where is the fruit 2 Lit. ‘work’. of your penitence? 3 Or ‘penance’. 4How is it that you have been again ensnared by our adversary? It was through him we were driven out of our dwelling-place in Paradise as aliens and deprived of all spiritual joy.
