Text Commentary

1Then his son Seth said, You have been pining, perhaps, for the fruit of Paradise, which you used to eat once, and that is why you are lying in such a sorry state. Only tell me, and I will go to the nearest of the gates of Paradise and put dust on my head and prostrate myself on the ground before the gates of Paradise and lament and entreat the Lord with a loud and bitter lament: perhaps he will listen to me and send his angel to fetch me the fruit you have been pining for. 2Adam answered and said, No, my son, I have not been pining for that fruit; but I feel weak and am in great pain in my body. Seth answered, What is pain, my lord father? I do not understand. But explain it to us and 1 Lit. ‘But do not hide it from us, but’. tell us about it.

Notes:

1 Lit. ‘But do not hide it from us, but’.
