…As Abadam and Yva made their way out of the garden in the
east, it seemed as though the leaves of the trees themselves
were whispering: “I will put enmity between you and the
woman, and between your seed and her offspring.
You shall bruise his head
as he shall bite your heel,
and he shall bruise your head
as you shall bite his heel.”
But it was the serpent Abadel hissing at
Abadam from the branches of the tree of life.
When Abadam and Yva had departed the garden in the
east, there was silence there about the space of one day.
To bar the way to its holy mountain so that
Abadam and Yva could never return, the Spirit
appointed a cherub with whirling limbs of flame.
