Apocalypsis Mosis

Scanned and Edited by Joshua Williams 1995, from The Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha of the Old Testament Website

Chapter I

1 This is the story of Adam and Eve after they had gone out of Paradise. And Adam knew his wife

2 Eve and went upwards to the sun-rising and abode there eighteen years and two months. And

3 Eve conceived and bare two sons; Adiaphotos, who is called Cain and Amilabes who is called Abel.

Chapter II

1 And after this, Adam and Eve were with one another and while they were sleeping, Eve said to Adam her lord: My lord, Adam, behold,

2 I have seen in a dream this night the blood of my son Amilabes who is styled Abel being poured into the mouth of Cain his brother and he went on drinking it without pity. But he begged him to leave him a little of it. Yet he hearkened

3 not to him, but gulped down the whole; nor did it stay in his stomach, but came out of his mouth. And Adam said, ‘Let us arise and go

4 and see what has happened to them. (I fear) lest the adversary may be assailing them somewhere.’
