1When she heard this, Eve realized it was the devil who had persuaded her to get out of the river; and she fell on her face on the earth, and her sorrow and groaning and wailing were redoubled. 2And she cried out and said Woe to you, devil. Why do you attack us for no reason? Why do you interfere with us? 1 Lit. ‘What have you to do with us?’ What have we done to you that you pursue us with such craft? 2 Reading with the text dolose: some emend to dolore (‘with such pain’). 3Or why is your malice directed against us? 3 Lit. ‘Or what has your malice to do with us?’ Have we taken away your glory and caused you to be dishonoured? Why, enemy, do you persecute us to the death with such malice and such spite?
