Angelic Liturgy

33.1 And Eve rose up and put her hand on the face (of Adam), and the angel said to her, "Lift up your hand from that which is of the earth." [45]33.1 Eve arose, [45]33.1 Eve arose and put her hand on her face and the angel went up again, and he told Eve, "Raise you eyes and abandon earthly concerns."
33.2 And she gazed steadfastly into heaven, and beheld a chariot of light, borne by four bright eagles, (and) it was impossible for any man born of woman to tell the glory of them or behold their face and angels going before the chariot [45]33.2 As for Eve, when she had raised her eyes towards the heavens, she saw chariots of fire and a light which went up, (borne) by four [*winds*]: they were so resplendent that no word could express it, and it was impossible to sound them out, neither from the front nor from the back. And angels were proceeding before these chariots.
33.3 and when they came to the place where your father Adam was, the chariot halted and the Seraphim were between the father and the chariot. [45]33.3 And when they had arrived (at the place) where the father was, the chariot stopped and the Seraphs stood between him and the chariots. 40-41.5 And Eve returned again to where the corpse of our father Adam lay, and she saw a golden incense pot and three burning flares and three angels attending them, and the corpse of Adam anointed and the scent of fragrance ascending to Heaven.
33.4 And I beheld golden censers and three bowls, and behold all the angels with censers and frankincense came in haste to the incense-offering and blew upon it and the smoke of the incense veiled the firmament. [45]33.4 And I, Eve, saw three gold censers, and (three) [cups] and three angels come quickly upon the altar. These angels took a burning coal and put it in the censer and set the censer upon (the altar). And while they blew, the smoke went up and veiled the firmaments of the heavens. 40-41.6 And as the angels assembled, they bowed before the throne and the archangel Joel said, "Holy above holy, O Lord, forgive your creature, for it is the creation of your hands."
33.5 And the angels fell down to God, crying aloud and saying, "JAEL, Holy One, have pardon, for he is Your image, and the work of Your holy hands." [45]33.5 The angels were praising (God), they were bowing before him, crying out and saying, "God, forgive Adam for he is your image and the work of your hands: he is your creature." 42-44.1a Eve saw great marvels, which were being performed before God and cried in great distress and called her son Seth and said to him,
34.1 And then I Eve beheld two great and fearful mysteries before the presence of God and I wept for fear, and I cried aloud to my son Seth and said, 46.1 The sun, moon and stars grew dark for seven days. Seth embraced the body of his father and mourned over it. Eve cast her eyes upon the ground with her hands clasped above her head and her head placed on her knees. All her children wept with very bitter tears. [46]34.1 And I, Eve, saw two great lights prostrated in fear before [God] and I wept and told my son Seth, 42-44.1b "Arise, Seth, from the corpse of your father and come to see a marvelous thing, such as you have never seen before."
34.2 "Rise up, Seth, from the body of your father Adam, and come to me, and see a spectacle which no man's eye has yet beheld and how they supplicate on behalf of your father, Adam." 46.2 Then Michael the angel appeared, standing at Adam's head, and said to Seth, "Arise from the body of your father, and come with me and see what the Lord God has arranged for him. He is his creature and he has taken pity on him." [46]34.2 "Rise up from beside your father's body, come towards me and see that which your eyes have not seen, concerning Adam your father." 42-44.2a Seth arose and came to his mother and she said to him,
35.1 Then Seth arose and came to his mother and said to her: "Why do you weep?" [46]35.1 Then Seth arose and went close to his mother Eve and told her, "Why are you weeping? 42-44.2b "Look, my son, toward heaven."
42-44.3 And looking up Seth saw the whole angelic host standing before the throne of the Lord, saying in prayer, "Pity your creation O Master."
35.2 (And) she said to him: "Look up and see with your eyes the seven heavens opened, and see how the body of your father lies on its face and all the holy angels are praying on his behalf and saying: 'Pardon him, Father of All, for he is Your image.'" [46]35.2 Raise your eyes and see the seven firmaments open and see the likeness of father Adam, as he lies before God and all the angels are beseeching him and saying, 'God, forgive Adam, for he is your image and your likeness, because it is you who have created him.'"
35.3 Pray, my child Seth, what shall this mean? And will he one day be delivered into the hands of our Invisible God? [46]35.3 "What is this, then, my son Seth?
35.4 But who are, my son Seth, the two Ethiopians who stand by at the prayers for your father?" [46]35.4a Do they deliver [the blood of my spouse] to these Indians, for they were before God?" 42-44.4 Again Seth spoke to his mother, "Look there, how the sun and moon bow down to the throne, praying for our father Adam."
36.1 And Seth said to his mother, "They are the sun and moon and themselves fall down and pray on behalf of my father Adam." [46]35.4b Seth replied to Eve and told her, "No, mother, [did you not recognize those whom you called Indians in these colors of blood]?"
[46]35.4c Eve replied to him and told him, "I do not know them, my son."
[46]36.1 Seth replied to her and told her, "These are the sun and the moon: they are prostrated and they are beseeching for Adam, my father."
42-44.5 And Eve said, "Where is their light?"
36.2 Eve said to him: "And where is their light and why have they taken on such a black appearance? " [46]36.2 Where is the light of the sun, for it is no more with it, or why is it darkened thus?" 42-44.6 Seth said to his mother, "When the archangel Michael himself arose in order to pray, all the power of the angels before throne of the Lord ceased."
36.3 And Seth answered her, "The light has not left them, but they cannot shine before the Light of all things, the Father of Light; and on this account their light has been hidden." [46]36.3 Seth replied to her and told Eve, "Because its light has been eclipsed before the God of all and its light had become darkened by fear of God."
