Chapter 21
Adam And Eve Attempt Suicide.
1 Then Adam and Eve went in search of the garden.
2 And the heat beat like a flame on their faces; and they sweated from the heat,
and cried before the Lord.
3 But the place where they cried was close to a high mountain, facing the
western gate of the garden.
4 Then Adam threw himself down from the top of that mountain; his face was torn
and his flesh was ripped; he lost a lot of blood and was close to death.
5 Meanwhile Eve remained standing on the mountain crying over him, thus lying.
6 And she said, "I don't wish to live after him; for all that he did to himself was
through me."
7 Then she threw herself after him; and was torn and ripped by stones; and
remained lying as dead.
8 But the merciful God, who looks over His creatures, looked at Adam and Eve
as they lay dead, and He sent His Word to them, and raised them.
9 And said to Adam, "O Adam, all this misery which you have brought on
yourself, will have no affect against My rule, neither will it alter the covenant of
the 5, 500 years."
